Registration Policy

Registration Policy

SME offers several types of member and nonmember registration options. For more information about a specific type of registration, please review the information below.

Registration Policy

All attendees and authors at RETC 2019 are required to register. Nonmember authors may register at the member rate. Badges are required for admittance to the technical sessions, Exhibit Hall and social functions.

Wire Transfer Policy

If paying by wire transfer, the registrant is responsible for paying any bank fees associated with the wire transfer. When contacting your bank about the wire, you will need to request that 57A field is changed from either “Share” or “SHA” to “OUR”.  This will make all fees paid upfront by the sending party. Registrations are not considered final until full payment is received.
