What do I need to know about registering?

Category Early Registration Registration
Retiree/Student $255 $290
NGO/Academic $450 $515
Corporate $1,230 $1,400
Government $540 $615
Virtual $25 $25

Important Registration Information: We will use WellCheck, a secure third-party platform, to manage the collection and storage of attendees’ vaccination information. (More detailed information on our COVID-19 safety protocols is available here).

A note about pricing: We recognize that ticket prices (which include all platform and credit card processing fees) have risen since our last in-person conference, in 2019. This increase reflects general inflation in the global economy and the costs of the Covid safety protocols we have put in place. In order to ensure the safety of attendees, we have cut the number of guests from 800 to roughly 400. To make the conference more accessible for those unable to attend in person, we have added a paid virtual attendee option which will allow attendees to engage fully in the conference through access to livestreams of all conference panels and side sessions, the ability to participate in live Q&A, and networking opportunities with other conference participants. The nominal fee will help offset the increases to audio-visual equipment costs required to provide these services.


1. Early Bird Registration: May 2, 2022–May 31, 2022

Due to space restrictions, we are capping registration at 400 people. If we reach 400 registrants before October 17, 2022, we reserve the right to close registration early. Depending on the state of the pandemic, we reserve the right to increase the number of available tickets as the conference approaches.

COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS: More detailed information on our COVID-19 safety protocols, which include a vaccination and booster requirement, is available here.

Please note we will NOT offer any refunds on account of any COVID-19 safety requirements we put in place, including to any participants who are excluded because they do not meet vaccination requirements or fail to follow safety rules. However, we will offer a full refund to any participant who cannot attend because they test positive for COVID-19 or exhibit its symptoms.

VISAS: Due to increased U.S. visa processing times across the world, Carnegie can provide visa invitation letters on request through August 31, 2022. It is the responsibility of the participant to complete the visa application process. Carnegie is not responsible for procuring any visas.
