Are there ID requirements needed to register at the discounted rates offered for military, student, and academic attendees?
Yes. All attendees registering under these special rates must present a valid ID to document their eligibility at conference registration on October 27. If you are unable to present a valid ID, we reserve the right to adjust your registration fee to the general admission rate.
What are my parking options?
There are multiple convenient and affordable parking options in Downtown Tampa. A map of those options can be found here. We recommend parking in the Tampa Convention Center Garage , located at 333 S. Franklin Street, or the Fort Brooke Garage, located at 107 N. Franklin Street. Parking fees are not included in your conference registration.
How do I contact the conference organizers?
Please email FC2Events@usf.edu.
When will the agenda be available?
The conference agenda will be made available on our website at least one month prior to the conference.
Can I update my personal information after I register?
Yes, you can edit your registration information through your Eventbrite account, using the confirmation number that was given to you at the time of purchase. We ask that any changes be made by October 20.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No, it is not necessary to bring a copy of your printed ticket. The registration agents can check you by name or by scanning the ticket on your smartphone.
What is the refund policy?
The name of the registered attendee in Eventbrite doesn't match the person who plans to attend. Is that okay?
No, the attendee registered to attend in Eventbrite must be the same person who plans to attend the event. Eventbrite allows you to provide the name of the purchaser as well as the name of the attendee. Please make sure to follow registration instructions carefully.
My spouse/partner has a valid military ID; will that allow me to register at the discounted military rate?
No. The discount only applies to active, reserve, or retired members of the military--not spouses, partners, or family members.
I work for a college/university, but am not a professor; do I still qualify for the discounted academic rate?
Yes, you qualify for the discounted academic rate if you have a valid university/ID that proves your employment. This ID must be presented at registration.
I registered but can no longer attend, can I transfer my registration to someone else?
Yes, you can transfer an existing registration to someone else by contacting FC2Events@usf.edu with the request. The request must be received no later than October 23.
Will there be a virtual aspect to this conference so I can view sessions without physically attending the event?
No, live streaming of the conference is not available at this time.
