Travel Information

The following information is provided to make international travel as convenient as possible. Once you have completed the conference registration process you will find participant letters under your registration account, which you are free to print for your convenience. The conference management staff is willing to provide information whenever possible. However, please note the following:

  • Invitation and participation letters cannot be issued to potential attendees until registration and full payment are made.
  • Conference organizers are unable to send invitation letters directly to consulates on behalf of a potential attendee. Invitation letters are prepared solely for individuals and are emailed directly to them.
  • It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure documentation is correct and completed in a timely manner before you start your journey. It is recommended that application for a visa be made at least 10 weeks prior to the proposed travel dates.
  • People visiting from Canada and from non-U.S. countries are required to have a valid passport and possibly other documentation. Contact your nearest embassy or consulate with any questions or concerns regarding your travel requirements.
