The Benefits of Registering as a Group

Group Registration Individual Registration
Group leaders can be invoiced for the entire group. Individuals must pay individually and registrations without payment are not accepted. Registration confirmations serve as an invoice for Individual Attendees.

Group leaders will need to enter a unique email address to register each Delegate. Individual Attendees must use their login and password to register as a member or guest.

Individual Attendees receive mailed badges in advance and must pick up meeting materials onsite individually. If badges are not received in advance, the badge may be issued only to the Individual Attendee onsite. Photo identification is required.
