COMPANION PROGRAM & TOURS
Join fellow companions at the symposium by registering for the Companion Club. This is an excellent opportunity to meet new people and catch up with old friends!
Adult or youth (ages 8 to 17) companions who are pre-registered may go directly to the registration desk located in the Convention Center to obtain a special Companion Registration Packet.
This will include:
- Name badge that will allow you access to the Companion Suite & Exhibit Hall (during regular hours)
- Gift bag with goodies
- One ticket to the Tuesday Welcome Reception
- Any tour or social event tickets you may have purchased
Youths (ages 8-17) who are registered for the Junior Companion Club are welcome in the Companion Suite with an adult Companion Club member. Children under age 8 do not receive a gift bag, but will be admitted free if accompanied by a registered adult Companion Club member.
Your ticket to the Welcome Reception is an opportunity to enjoy another great event with your technical attendee where everyone can have more fun and meet new people. It is a great networking time for all. The Wednesday night Gala Banquet is also a fun event, however companions must purchase tickets separately for that event. Please check your registration form and Advance Program for pricing and information about the Gala. Discounted prices are available for youth under age 18, and children under age 8 will be admitted for free if accompanied by a registered adult.
If you register for the Companion Club, you may sign up for any of the Companion Tours right in your own registration. Otherwise, a tour may be purchased through the technical attendee’s registration; there will be a drop down space to add your name.
