Registration for our Fall Conference works a little differently than the Spring registration process.  Registration is “First come first serve” and we will sell out the first day typically.  On July 15th at 8:30A.M. Central Time is when registration opens and the following is the only way to register:

  1. Call Matthew Knight at 913-440-9199 leave a voicemail message with contact name, company name and call back number
  2. Matt will call you back in the order in which voicemails are received. 
    1. NOTE: When he calls you back, he will need the names of the individuals he is registering for your company, what level of exhibiting/sponsorship you are selecting, as well as the ability to process payment.  If this is not ready upon the return call he will move to the next voicemail on the list. We do this to be equitable to everyone to have a chance to register as we sell out fast. 
  3. We have a total of 25 booth spaces and of the 25, 20 will be reserved for exhibiting and sponsorship.  There will only be 5 for exhibiting only registration.

They may NOT wear company shirts, talk (Schedule business meeting/appointments), present, advertise or hand out business cards to attendees during the conference. If this is violated, they will be asked to leave without refund of their attendee fee. (The purpose of this clause is to be fair to the companies that have purchased booth space.)
