Registration Tips:

  • Before the Team Registers identify a Team Name. Attendees will be coming to the Summit in teams. In order for us to coordinate this attendance please discuss and determine with your team members a Team Name you will use for registration purposes. This will assist us in coordinating your experience at the Summit. Tip: a short keyword driven Team Name is most appropriate and does not have to be the final title of your team idea. All Team members will need to know this precise name to provide during registration.
  • Hotel booking is part of your registration. Be prepared with a form of payment for your hotel booking at the time of registration, even if you are part of a Designated Member Team receiving complementary free registration. Note: The Summit consists of three full days, October 16-18, 2018.
