How can I tell if I’m already registered for the conference?

You can see whether or not you are registered for conference by clicking on the "HOME" button in the upper right hand corner of this page. The "Account Status" box in the upper right hand corner of the HOME page will tell you whether or not you are registered. You must be logged in to your user account to see your status.

I got a print program in the mail. Does this mean I’m registered for the conference?

No, ETS mails the print program to all current ETS members. Receiving the print program in the mail does not mean that you have registered for conference.

My paper proposal was accepted for the program. Does this mean I’m automatically registered?

No, you must still register yourself for conference.

If I pre-registered, when will I receive my name badge?

All name badges and banquet tickets will be mailed by October 31st. If you do not receive your name badge in the mail, you can print a replacement badge at the Conference Registration desk.

Do I need to check-in when I get there?

To check in please go to the Tote Bag window of the Conference Registration desk when you arrive to pick up your tote bag and lanyard.

Can I replace my name badge if I never received it in the mail, forgot to bring it, or have lost it?

Yes, go to the Name Badge Reprint station at the Conference Registration Desk to print a replacement badge.

Tickets can be purchased at the Conference Registration desk until 6pm on Tuesday, November 17th. while supplies last.
