2018 Convention Fee Overview

Every person, including exhibitors, must register online and pay the registration fee. Exhibiting companies will receive a limited number of Exhibitor Certificates, which may be used during the registration process to “pay” for an attendee’s registration. Any additional exhibitors in your booth will pay the registration fees listed below.

A/TA membership, whether regular, corporate or life, allows you to register with the member rate discount. You may pay for membership and convention in the same transaction using two different cards if you choose.

Social Guest Registration

Guests register at the same full registration rate as the attendee they are accompanying.  A guest is a social friend, family member, or spouse.  These events are all included in a full registration, but are available for guest who might want to attend a single event or two.  If your guest wants to attend more than three events, it is likely to be more cost effective to do a full registration.
