Vendor Registration

The four-night Conference Package dates are July 16, 17, 18 and 19, 2018.

These dates are contracted and cannot be changed. Additional room nights can be purchased.

Vendor Registration Instructions

It is recommended you arrange your Airline/Flight reservations from your departure city to / from Nassau, Bahamas (NAS) using the preferred airline carriers listed on the web page under the ‘Travel’ tab prior to registration.

When to Arrive
Our Conference officially kicks off on Monday, July 16th at 6:00pm with the Welcome Reception.  Be cautious when booking your flights if you plan on making it to the Welcome Reception, as some flights do not arrive until later in the evening.

Our annual Golf Tournament is on Monday, July 16 at 7:00am. If you plan to participate, you will want to arrive on Sunday, July 15 and book an additional night at the hotel.

Please read carefully to avoid duplicate hotel room entries.  You must be 18 years of age and hold a major credit card in order to reserve a room.

Main Contact Registration Type
The onsite primary contact should register himself/herself first, as the (Diamond/Platinum/Gold/Silver/Bronze/Basic) “MAIN CONTACT.” You will provide the hotel arrival and departure dates. Reminder: The package dates are July 16, 17, 18 and 19 and are not changeable. If you plan to golf, be sure to add July 15.

Additional Staff Room Packages and Badges are available as follows:

Exhibitor Staff Room Package Only
The number of additional staff badges varies with each sponsorship. The hotel limits room occupancy to four (4) people. Select the "Exhibitor Staff Room Package" registration type for staff members who do not wish to share a room or if you wish to bring additional staff or guests outside the designated amount of rooms given. This will be a room only.  

Note: You will enter a registration discount code depending on how many rooms are included in your sponsorship package.

Additional Staff Badge Only
Another option to register is “Additional Staff Badge Only” – which will not make you a room reservation (we will assume at this point you are sharing a room or have reserved a room package), but can be used in lieu of a staff member bringing family members who wish to attend the events. We aim to eliminate duplicate hotel room entries.

Enter your personal information on the next section. Please use the correct email address. If you are an assistant completing this on behalf of your associates, please DO NOT put your information. In this case, please use the "Completing this on behalf of another registrant" email field so that you will be cc'd on all correspondence. This will ensure that we have the correct contact information for the registered attendee.

4.    AGENDA: 
Confirm you plan on arriving on or before Monday, July 16th. If you plan to participate in the golf tournament on Monday at 7:00am, you will need to arrive on Sunday. 

This is where you will confirm whether you need a room, are sharing a room, or are a third person in a room and just need a badge. There will be an additional charge for this extra room night in addition to your package price.

You will see our planned agenda on a schedule so you can plan out your week in the Bahamas. Select the events you plan to attend.

Enter your hotel arrival and departure dates. (If you are sharing a room with another REGISTERED attendee, your hotel information will not be collected.) If you are not prompted to collected arrival and departure information, you have NOT selected that you need a room reservation for yourself.

*NOTE - if you purchase additional nights before or after the set conference dates of July 16, 17, 18 and 19, the total will be calculated in the final invoice as an average daily balance (minus the 4 nights covered under your hotel package).

6.    CHECKOUT: 
Here you will enter either your credit card information and submit payment.

You should receive a printable confirmation page with a bar code on it, as well as a link to make edits to your registration, after you have completed the registration process successfully. We will periodically send out reminders and updates on the conference, so be sure to use the email address we will need to keep open communication with you.
