Can I bring my child(ren)?

Children under the age of 16 will not be allowed in the exhibit hall under any circumstances during exhibitor setup and teardown.

Can I pick up badges for my colleagues when we are onsite?

No, identification is required when picking up badges onsite so it must be picked up by the registered individual.

What happens to my registration fee if I do not attend?

If you cancel, in writing, before March 22, you will be refunded the full amount minus a $75 processing fee. After the deadline, no refunds are given due to the fees already used to pay for the convention services, vendors, food and beverages, shuttle service, etc. based upon a guaranteed number (that included your registration). These fees paid to our vendors are non-refundable to the Academy; therefore the fees are not refunded after a certain date.

If I join now, can I register for convention as a member?

Yes, if you complete the membership application and pay the membership fees, then you can register for convention as a member. If you registered as a member, but failed to renew your membership application and fees by the convention dates, you will be charged the difference in the registration fees. Please note; it can take up to 72 hours for your membership application to be processed and posted to our registration database.
