Register Today!

The program begins with the President's Reception at 6:00 PM on Tuesday the 13th, with talks all day on the 14th and 15th.   Be sure to attend Wednesday's banquet which is included in most registrations.  Single day registrants can easily add the banquet and/or the President's Reception to their event during registration.  Guests too can be added for these functions to any of the registrations during the sign up process.  Just click Register to begin!

Interested in exhibiting and sponsoring the conference?  Be sure to see all the opportunities including Platinum, Gold, and Silver which include three, two, or one full registrations to the conference including invites to the President's Reception and banquet.  These three upper most levels of sponsorship also include an exhibitor space and recognition during the meeting, in the program, and throughout the year on the WAPMS website providing the best valued outreach for your organization.   

Looking for something different in sponsorship?  We also have Bronze and Refreshment Break categories for those seeking sponsorship alternatives without the conference attendance built-in or with an exhibition booth.  Of course, you are encouraged and welcomed to sign up to attend the conference as a regular registrant.  For a cross comparison of all the Sponsorship and Exhibitor Opportunities check out the summary matrix below.
