Representatives of the business side of news media, publishing houses, and for-profit corporations must register at the main registration desk and pay the appropriate fees.
Eligible persons are encouraged to pre-register via the media registration form (PDF format) on GSA's web site. Completed forms can be emailed to Ann Cairns (firstname.lastname@example.org) or faxed to her at 303-357-1074. The deadline for media pre-registration is Oct. 26. Onsite registration will take place at the Newsroom.
Pre-registrants will receive the full book of abstracts via first class mail, while supplies last. For delivery via means other than the U.S. Postal Service, send the preferred carrier name and an account number to Ann Cairns. Those who register on-site will receive the abstract book upon arrival. All media registrants will receive the Program book upon arrival at the Newsroom.
Information on hotel accommodations is available on the GSA web site. Reservations at convention hotels can be made through GSA at special reduced rates through Sept. 28. Media are encouraged to make their arrangements as soon as possible.
