AABB Exhibit Hall Non-Industry Spouse/Child/Relative Daily Pass

Attendees that purchase the full four days of the meeting can obtain their complimentary non-industry guest (spouse/child/relative) daily pass onsite at the Exhibit Hall Guest Pass booth in the registration area. The registered meeting attendee will need to accompany the non-industry guest to registration and submit their name for a daily pass. The non-industry guest will receive a complimentary guest pass for that day and will need to return and receive a new pass for each subsequent day they would like to attend the Exhibit Hall. Please contact the AABB Education and Professional Development Department (professionaldevelopment@aabb.org) if you have any questions.

AABB Institutional Membership

Institutional member organizations receive one meeting registration at the AABB Member Rate, which is allocated to the person designated as the Main Contact. Only one person from each institution is designated as the main contact. To register at the AABB Member Rate, the main contact needs to log into the registration site with their Username and Password and their name will be recognized in the system to receive the Member rate. If the main contact cannot attend the meeting, they can designate one of their non-member staff to receive the AABB Member rate. For more information, please contact AABB Membership Department at membership@aabb.org.

Payment

All payments must be in U.S. dollars only. If paying by check, make check out to Experient/AABB and you must write separate checks for your registration fee and housing deposit. Failure to send two checks may result in the loss of your preferred hotel choice.

Member Discount

The membership discount is valid only at the time when purchasing the Annual Meeting registration. A refund of the difference will not be given if the AABB Membership is purchased after the person has registered and paid for the Annual Meeting.
