Group Discount Pricing and Procedure
GROUP DISCOUNT REQUESTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER MAY 23, 2016.
Group discounts are valid on full paying registrations only. Group discounts may not be combined with any other existing offers or discounts. Group discounts are not applicable on partial registrations, day rate registrations, or academic rate registrations.
Group discount pricing follows:
20% discount applied to 3 or more registrants from the same company or team
25% discount applied to 6 or more registrants from the same company or team
The group must register at the same time on the same record. The discount is only applicable for a single payment on one invoice. If you need individual invoices, you should register at the individual rates.
