Registration Information

Click on the green Register button above to register for the conference. Use the dropdown box that appears to choose how many people you would like to register at this time (up to 10), and click the green Checkout button.

Follow the instructions to fill out the form. If you are registering someone other than yourself for the conference, you can enter your own name and email in the Your Information section, but you must use the information for the person who will be attending in the Registration, Work Information, and Other Information sections. The information entered in these last sections are used to print name badges, set up conference check-in, and create certificates of attendance after the conference.

Duplicate registrations will be deleted. Only the name entered in the Registration section will be available to staff at conference check-in.

Once all required fields are completed, click the green Complete Registration button at the bottom of the page. You will be taken to a confirmation page, and a confirmation email will be sent out to the email address provided. There are no tickets for the conference, and there is no need to print anything out to bring to check-in. Check-in staff will have a list of names provided in the Registration section of the registration form.

Conference check-in staff can also register attendees at the conference, but it strongly recommended that you register online ahead of time to speed up check-in and make sure we have the correct information for you.

FAQs

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You will not receive a printed ticket, so no need to bring anything to conference check-in. We will have a list of registrations ready.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

No. Names on the registration are used to print name badges in advance and predict the number of attendees. If someone else is coming with you or in your place, please make sure they register separately.

FAQs

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can send an email to CJISconference@sled.sc.gov.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

There are no tickets to print out. Go to conference check-in/registration when you arrive to receive your name badge and be marked as attending.

Can I update my registration information?

Yes.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

The name entered for each attendee in the registration form will be used to make name badges. If you are registering someone else, please make sure you enter their name in the attendee sections, not your own. Duplicate registrations may be deleted without notice in order to maintain an accurate count of attendees.
