What’s included in the registration fees?

We're excited to announce that all conference meals are included this year. To enhance your conference experience and networking opportunities, Sunday night dinner and lunches on Monday and Tuesday are provided as part of your registration fee.

You get admission to all conference events unless otherwise noted. And that's not all. You get access to can't-miss activities like the Charity Event, Kick Back Party and Get-Acquainted Reception.

We're also offering day passes for those who can't be out of the office for more than one day. To help you get more for your money, we’re offering team discounts.

Team Discounts

What a great idea – bring your colleagues to SAS Global Forum and save money. Team discounts are available for ten or more business and government attendees from the same organization. All organizations must preregister their team members by March 10. Team discounts are not available at the on-site registration.

  • Eligibility
    • All team members attending SAS Global Forum must be employed by the same organization and named at the same time. Team discounts are only available on the business and government registration fee. They are not available for other types of registrations or extra-fee items. You can have a few placeholders if you do not have all the names, but we need to make sure the discount level is agreed upon up front.
  • The Process
    • Designate one person in your organization as the team manager and collect the names of team members. You can have a few place holders if you do not have all the names, but we need to make sure the discount level is agreed upon up front. Getting actual names will help the registrar work with you to make sure that registrations are coming in and to monitor how many more to expect. This information should be submitted on the Team Discount Application Form.

      A special team code will be assigned to your organization and provided to the team manager. It is the team manager's responsibility to pass that code on to their team members. Each team member must submit a separate registration using the team code. The team discount must be in place prior to any team member registering in order for the discount to apply to that registrant. Everyone must register during the same registration period (i.e. early-bird or regular registration).

  • Discount
    • The number of names that are submitted on the Team Discount Application Form will determine the level of discount. If a team does not meet the minimum number of team member registrations for the level, their fees may be recalculated to the appropriate level based on the actual number of team members registered. Team discounts will not be recalculated if additional attendees are registered from the same organization.
  • Deadline
    • Organizations must pre-register their team members by March 10.
  • Frequently Asked Questions
    • Can we pay for all team members on one invoice?
      • Billing is per transaction, therefore we cannot do a master invoice. Each registration is charged as the individual completes the registration form.
    • How do the team members get the discount code?
      • It is the responsibility of the team manager to pass the discount code on to each member of the team.
    • Can attendees from the same country but different organizations form a team?
      • There is no team discount available by country. All team members must be from the same organization.
    • Can the discount be applied after someone registers?
      • No. The discount is only valid at the time of registration. Team members may not be added after they have registered.
    • What if my question isn't in this list?
