REGISTRATION

Registration is now open! Please click here to register.

Please note that Annual Meeting full conference registrations are SOLD OUT.​ However, Session Only registrations are available at a lower rate, which provide access to general sessions, breakouts, and receptions - but do NOT provide access to meal events. New rates are listed here:

- PBS Member Station: $425.00
- PBS Friends & Family: $425.00

(APT, APTS, CPB, NETA, NPR, NFPB, Series Producers)
- Non-Member/Industry Attendee: $550.00

(Consultants, vendors, speakers, business partners/sponsors. If your company is considering sponsoring or exhibiting, please contact Naseem Hussain at nhussain@pbs.org before registering.)

Early Bird registration deadline is Friday, April 6, 2018. Advance Registration closes Friday, April 20, 2018. After this date, registrations must be made on site at the registration desk and include a processing fee.

We encourage you to register early in order to secure a discounted guest room rate at our conference hotel. The conference hotel will sell out, so we recommend booking prior to April so you do not have to stay at a different hotel nearby. In addition, we highly recommend that you register early to guarantee a full conference registration. In the past few years, due to overwhelming response, registration has been limited to session only (which does not include access to our sponsored meal events) as we approach the Early Bird registration deadline.
