Spouse/Guest Policy




If your spouse/significant other is traveling to the conference with you, we encourage you to register him/her. A registered spouse/guest can participate in any conference program, business or social. This includes breakfast and coffee breaks in the Exhibit Hall, as well as the lunches on Thursday and Friday and Saturday brunch. Guests are invited to attend Wednesday’s opening reception and Friday night’s closing event.

Those who are not registered will not be permitted to enter/attend any of the conference programs/events, including meals or have access to the Exhibit Hall.

A spouse/guest is defined as a family member or significant other whose primary purpose in attending the conference is to accompany the registrant and generally would not be eligible for Society membership. A co-worker or associate within the industry does not qualify for a spouse/guest registration and should complete an individual registration.
