Take advantage of the early bird discounts by registering on or before April 8. Registrations that are postmarked by May 20 will be confirmed. After May 20 please call to register at +01.847.699.2929. Chicago.


A completed registration form, along with full payment to process your registration (your credit card information or company check payable to ASSE), must accompany your registration. Registrations without full payment will not be processed.


Need to substitute one person for another? Please submit substitutions in writing by May 27 to or fax to +01.847.768.3434. If pricing for the new attendee changes the total cost of attending the conference, you will be charged or refunded for the difference in fees. After May 20 an $85 substitution fee will apply. Substitutions after May 27 will be handled on-site.  We are unable to accept substitutions over the phone.


Full refunds (yes, that’s right) will be granted to written requests received by May 20 via email to or fax to +01.847.768.3434. Cancellations received between May 21 and May 27 will be assessed a $285 PDC cancellation fee and $100 Pre and Post conference seminar per course cancellation fee. Cancellations received after May 27 will forfeit registration in its entirety. Refunds will not be issued on-site for any missed sessions, events (Gala, technical tours, guest tours, etc.), including missed sessions due to travel delays or cancellations. We are unable to accept cancellations over the phone. 


Whenever possible, arrangements will be made for physically challenged, those with dietary restrictions or allergies provided 90 days written notice. Please include a letter of explanation, your name and phone number, and attach to the registration form.  We will contact you to further discuss details.


A completed government purchase order or training authorization form must accompany your registration form if not paid in full at the time of registration. However, this is not considered payment. Your registration will have a balance due until full payment is received. Registrations received without a PO or training authorization form will be returned. Specials events must be pre-paid with your credit card information or check made payable to ASSE.


Every effort will be made to ensure that the program schedule and events remain as published. However, unforeseen changes may occur. ASSE reserves the right to make changes to the program. Please review the program book on-site for changes.


Bring seven or more colleagues from your company and save on the entire conference.  The more attendees you have and the earlier you register the more you save! Have your company representative call the ASSE Group Coordinator for full details +01.847.699.2929  or email

Your group must be registered and postmarked by June 1, 5:00 pm CST.

Note to Groups: If the number of cancellations brings the group size down to a lower discount level, each registrant will be billed the difference between the discount already paid and the next discount level fee.


If you only have one day to visit the exhibits, we have a one-day only exposition pass that is available at ASSE on-site registration for $95.  Advance purchase is not available.
