Discounts will be forfeited if payment is late. A 1.5% finance charge per month will apply to any payments received 30 days after registration date.

If I can’t attend, can I transfer my registration?
Registrations may be transferred to another employee in your company and requests for transfers of registration fees must be made in writing at least 30 days prior to the start of the event unless specified in a separate contract. Registrations not transferred by this date will be forfeited and will not be eligible for transfer or a credit memo. View all registration terms and conditions here.

What if I have to cancel?
Canceled registrations that are eligible to receive a credit memo must be canceled in writing at least 30 days prior to the start of the event; the credit memo is 75% of the value of the registration fee. Registrations not canceled by this deadline will be forfeited and a credit memo will not be issued. All registration fees are non-refundable. View all registration terms and conditions here.

My credit card won’t process.
Credit card processing problems are generally caused by a mismatch in the billing address of the credit card holder. Check that the address entered matches the billing address listed with your credit card provider or contact your credit card provider to authorize the charge.

My registration timed out, do I have to reenter all of my information?
The system will save all of the information you have previously entered. Simply enter the email address that you used to begin the registration and the password created during the initial registration and the fields will populate with the data entered.

We do not offer a Center Stage only ticket. We have found that attending all days of the event offers the best conference experience and provides the best value for our attendees.

Do you offer an exhibit hall only ticket?
We do not offer an exhibit or expo access only ticket. Conference tickets are based around attending all days of the event and provide access to all sessions, functions and receptions during the event. The exhibit hall and theater are accessible to all attendees with the ability to move freely about the event. Many of the meals and receptions are hosted on the exhibit floor.
