Registration Process

Each in-person attendee will receive a badge, which gives you entry to the events (there are no tickets) and all attendees will receive and a login to our events app (both online and in person). Important pre-event information will be sent via email. Please provide each attendee’s information on the registration form. You may register multiple attendees from the same organization on the same form, for either the Fall Conference, the Festival of New Musicals, or both, and you may combine in-person and online registrations.

Your registration will not be complete until you click the SUBMIT button at the very end of the form and you have paid (if applicable). You will see a confirmation screen and receive an email upon completion.

Check payments must be received by October 10. If a registration is canceled due to non-payment, attendees will have to re-register at the current pricing.

 

Festival of New Musicals

The Festival of New Musicals is a separate event, but you may register for both events at once using this registration form. Or visit the Festival page for more details.
