Fee Structure:

In order to encourage AFPM attendees to use the contracted hotel block, a tiered registration fee structure will be in effect. Registrants occupying a hotel room in the AFPM block will pay a discounted registration fee $200 less than those registrants who choose to stay outside the block or at an alternate hotel. Registrations received after the hotel cut-off date will not be eligible for the registration discount.  Local commuter registrants, of course, will receive the discounted registration fee.

Register by February 9th to receive Early registration fees and make a reservation in the AFPM block. On February 10th, full registration fees increase by $100 and the discount is no longer available.

Meeting App:

The AFPM Meeting app contains an up to date attendee list, up-to-the-minute program details, session surveys, speaker information, as well as information regarding hospitality suites. Also, be sure to use the app to connect with attendees at the conference through the special email service provided through the app. The app will be available to registered attendees two (2) weeks before the conference.
