How to Register

The quickest way to register is online – simply click one of the “Register” buttons throughout this site to get started. Our registration is hosted with Eventbrite, which provides secure processing.

Our initial “Early Bird” Registration ends on July 31, 2017, and offers a 50% discount, our lowest price of the year for a 3-day conference ticket. You can also register now for one-day pre- and post-conference intensive workshops and our popular Awards Dinner & Benefit. Register early and be sure to book your hotel too!

1-day tickets and special rate tickets for low-income seniors, students and educators will be available after June 1, 2017. Afternoon passes (no access to morning keynotes) will be available after 1:30pm on site each day for access to afternoon and evening sessions, unless otherwise noted.

If you have questions or online registration doesn’t work for you, please give us a call at 1.877.BIONEER (1.877.246.6337). We are a small staff, so ask for your patience if we can’t answer your call immediately – we strive to return calls within one business day.
