Guest Registration

Attendees are encouraged to bring spouses, friends, and family to the Annual Meeting. All such attendees must register as guests in order to participate in meeting activities, at the cost of $35 per guest. Children under the age of 16 may attend the meeting for free. Guests include any interested party not professionally in the field of agricultural economics or applied economics, or a related discipline. Registered guests will receive a name badge and are invited to attend the Welcome Reception at no additional charge.

On-site Ticket Purchases

A limited number of tickets for special events may be available at the registration desk in Seattle. As these tickets will only be available on the condition that the event has open seats, we strongly suggest that you purchase your tickets in advance, when you register for the meeting. We cannot guarantee the availability of any tickets on-site.
