Getting a Visa
After identifying that a visa is needed, foreign travelers should contact the U.S. Embassy Consulate at http://www.usembassy.gov. Look for posted time frames on the Internet or call the Consular Section to hear recorded information about visa processing time frames. The State Department’s recommended first source of up-to-date visa information is http://travel.state.gov/visa/visa_1750.html.
ISA recommends following these guidelines for getting a visa for entry into the United States:
- Request a letter of invitation to attend ISA Sign Expo 2021 at least four (4) months prior to ISA Sign Expo. You must finish the registration process and payment in order to receive the visa invitation letter from ISA.
- Applicants should present their entire trip itinerary, including travel to any countries other than the United States, at the time of visa application.
- Provide evidence that you intend to return to your country of residence; applicants should provide proof of “binding,” or sufficient, ties to their home country or permanent residence abroad. This may include documentation of the following: family ties in home country or country of legal permanent residence, property ownership, bank accounts, and/or an employment contractor statement from an employer stating that the position will continue after the dates of the meeting.

Badges will be mailed to you directly. If a badge is needed on-site, the registration desk will be located inside Bayside B.
Will there be interpreters available at the show?

Where can I park my car?
Guests going to a show or convention can use the main parking garage, or can use the new underground parking.
This convention center parking area is located on the far south part of the resort, underneath the new convention center buildings. Access is available from both the Strip and from Russel Road, which is the road on Mandalay Bay’s southern border. The parking fees below apply to everyone, including those of you staying at the hotel, and those using the garage closest to the convention center. The costs listed below are for the use of the self-parking garages and uncovered parking spaces. Valet parking is more expensive and addressed a little bit below.
When arriving at Mandalay Bay, you’ll take a ticket when arriving and payment is made at a kiosk. These fees are the same for those of you staying at the Delano. Prices were raised in February of 2018 to the following:
Zero to 1 Hour: Free
1 to 4 Hours:$12
4 to 24 Hours: $15
Each additional 24 hour period: $15
The only exception this rule is that anyone who is an M Life rewards card holder (MGM Resorts and Mandalay Bay’s player’s card program), can park for free, but only if they have reached one of the following tiers: Pearl, Gold, Platinum or Noir.
New players and low-rollers start off with a Sapphire card and have to work their way up to Pearl or higher if they want free parking at Mandalay Bay.
Please note that parking at one MGM Resorts property, like Mandalay Bay, allows you to park at another MGM Resorts property without having to pay again that day. In other words, once you’ve paid for a day of parking at Mandalay Bay, you can drive and park at say, the Mirage, or Aria, without having to pay a new parking fee.
What should I do if I receive a message from someone claiming to represent ISA or ISA Sign Expo® about the show moving online and asking me to pay for this access?
Please be cautious — there is an emerging scam targeting attendees and exhibitors of tradeshows and event that have been rescheduled or canceled around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.
ISA and ISA Sign Expo® will NOT be soliciting payment for any registration or attendance fees – fees are only collected at the time you register or update your registration through our registration system.
If you receive a communication from anyone claiming to be an ISA or ISA Sign Expo 2020® representative and asking you to provide payment, DO NOT PAY. Please reach out to us directly to confirm any details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
