Registration is CLOSED. Registration will open by Tuesday, August 1, 2023 and the deadline is Friday, October 20, 2023.
IMPORTANT NOTE: In-person “walk-in” registrations will not be honored after the registration deadline due to policies at the venue. Refunds may not be honored after the deadline. Bottom line, please register and pay before the deadline so we can plan accordingly and not have to chase anyone down. These measures help keep costs affordable for all.
Please read all instructions carefully: This year’s registration is “a la carte” style like years past. Click on the links below to help you register to attend the conference, exhibit, and/or register for pre-conference activities. You will be taken to the “EPCAMR Online Store” to add registration items from this page. Once you have selected an item you may return to this page to add additional items to your online shopping cart or continue adding items in the store under the “Registrations” category. The items in the store are also marked as “Featured Items.” Tip: Please do not use your browser’s “Back” button in the store, as it can delete the order you are building. Once you are done, go through the checkout to view your items and finish the registration process. Securely pay with a credit or debit card using our online payment gateway, PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to use a card and can simply choose the “pay with debit or credit card” option. Our new online store also accepts check/money order payments, but if you prefer to use snail mail and printed registration, contact Michael Hewitt at email@example.com or (570) 371-3522 for details.
