Registration may be transferred to a colleague by giving him/her a signed written authorization on letterhead of your organization. Requests must include name and registration information of the person we are to transfer the registration to as well as the name of the person currently registered. It may be faxed to +1 (407) 217-2878 or it may be brought on check-in time at the conference registration desk.

Attendees will be required to present their WMSCI 2018 Registration Acknowledgement (the page obtained atthe end of the online registration process) or a valid photo identification to claim their conference materials.

Attendees that wish to pick up the conference materials of another colleague that by any chance a non-foreseeable event prevents him/her, at the last moment, from attending the conference, must present a signed written authorization from their colleague, on letterhead of his/her organization, indicating that they are authorized to pick up his/her conference materials on his/her behalf. We will make no exception on this issue.

 Secure Credit Card Online Payment
 
This site uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your credit card information. Although the system used for credit card information transmission is quite secure, some users prefer to fax their credit card information to us separately. You will be offered a choice of this payment option during the registration process. Since we cannot securely receive your signature or other authentication information, through e-mail, we cannot accept registrations via e-mail.
