Attending the Symposium as a group is a great way to connect with colleagues, build team camaraderie and bring new ideas back to your workplace. That’s why we’re offering discounted registration rates for four or more people who register together.

To take advantage of our Group Registration rates, go to our registration page and click “Register.” After you fill in the details to register one person, you’ll be given the option to “Add Person” on the last page. Continue clicking “Add Person” until you’ve added each person in your group. The discounted Group Registration rate will then be automatically applied to your registration total.
