The guest or spouse registration fee of US$80 per person ($85 after 19 Sept.) is for non-geologist spouses or family members and friends of professional and/or student registrants to the GSA Annual Meeting. To register, your name must be added to the registration of a professional, student, or teacher registrant. If that person has already registered, please contact GSA Sales and Service to add a guest registration.
The guest registration fee is required to
- attend guest activities,
- gain entrance to the Exhibit Hall,
- attend seminars and workshops, and
- take advantage of refreshments in the Guest Hospitality Suite.
Formal tours are offered at an additional cost (click on the "Guest Tours" link above-right, for more information). Fees cover the cost of professional tour guides, round-trip transportation, admission fees, and gratuities. Reservations for all tours will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Since the tour operator requires a final guarantee weeks in advance, most tours have attendance minimums and maximums. Please register early to guarantee your spot. Tours may be canceled if minimum attendance is not met.
The guest registration fee will NOT provide access to all Technical Sessions. However, guests can sign in with the hostess in the Guest Hospitality Suite and get a Visitor Badge allowing them to attend a specific presentation.
