Spouse Pass

Spouse Access to Cocktail Receptions, Luncheons, and the Sunday Night Dinner

A spouse who is involved in the member’s company, or may attend any session, or may be present at the member’s exhibit booth, must register as a full paying attendee, not at the spouse rate.

A spouse who is not involved in the member’s company but is the spouse of a full paying attendee, may register at the reduced spouse rate.

The reduced spouse rate includes attending any or all Cocktail Receptions, Luncheons, and the Sunday night event.


If you want to register someone at the reduced spouse rate and that person qualifies as described above, please contact the Administrator and he manually will enter that registration.
