Registration Information

Please review the following information to avoid delays in the processing of your registration or housing request.


Who Needs to Register

All registration categories for the AAPD 66th Annual Session include all education sessions (except those specified), the Welcome Reception, complimentary beverages in exhibit hall and the Scientific Proceedings. The guest registration is additional and must accompany that of an attendee; children are complimentary to the meeting, but tickets must be purchased for Social Events. Guests do NOT earn any continuing education credit; if seeking a CE Certificate, spouses/guests must register as Office Staff.

  • Tickets to the Presidents’ Farewell Dinner are an additional fee and must be purchased separately; see the Social Events section of the registration form and make the appropriate notation.
  • Additional tickets to all Social Events must be purchased during registration; onsite tickets for these functions may be limited and are subject to availability.
The cutoff for the advance fee is Monday, April 8, 2013. All registration forms submitted must be postmarked or date stamped on or before Monday, April 8, 2013, to qualify for advance registrations and receive the discounted rates.

Registration Materials: What You Receive Onsite

Again this year, badges will not be mailed. Attendees who register in advance will bring their e-mail confirmation to a Badge Pickup counter at registration to receive their badge(s), ticketed scientific sessions and social event tickets at self-serve kiosks. Upon confirming the details of your registration, you will be directed to a counter to pickup your printed registration materials, meeting materials and a tote bag containing the Program Book and other materials. A ticket will be issued for you to pick up your Scientific Proceedings (handouts) on CD-ROM at the CadmiumCD Desk located near registration.
