Is online registration secure?

Yes. Transactions are handled securely by Blackbaud, a VeriSign verified and trusted, PCI compliant service.

Can Symposium and Tech Track registration be purchased together?

Absolutely! In fact, you save $300 when you purchase them together ($220 for active military/government.) In order to get the savings, you must select the Symposium and Tech Track option on the registration form.

Are dining event tickets included with purchase?

Three dining tickets of your choice are included with Active Military/Government Space Symposium program registration.

Dining event tickets are not included with Industry Space Symposium program registration.

Dining tickets can be purchased online or can be added to an existing registration by calling Space Foundation customer relations at +1.800.691.4000. Dining event tickets may also be purchased onsite if space is available.

Why am I being charged a credit card processing fee when I register online?

Your registration total includes a non-refundable payment processing fee that enables Space Foundation to minimize registration price increases as much as possible, while still delivering a world-class symposium experience. This fee is paid to a third party that provides these services for Space Foundation and is not considered revenue for the Space Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. If you prefer not to pay this transaction fee, you have the choice to pay via check. Online payment is an alternative to traditional types of payments and we are pleased to be able to continue to provide this convenience for our customers.

When will I receive my QR code for registrant check-in?

QR codes will be sent to the email address provided during registration on April 2 and April 13.  If you do not receive your QR code or you register after April 12, please bring your government-issued I.D. to check-in to retrieve your credentials.  QR codes are not required for check-in.

What if I forget to bring my registrant check-in QR code with me?

No problem! We can verify your registration and identity with a valid government-issued I.D.

Can someone else pick up my badge for me?

No. For security reasons, we do not allow registrants to receive their badges and registration materials without valid government-issued I.D.s.

If I am an Exhibitor, can I go to any of the Symposium or Tech Track sessions?

Symposium and Tech Track sessions are reserved for "Registrants." Exhibitors who are not also classified as Registrants cannot attend sessions.

I am not registered for the Space Symposium, but would like to visit the Exhibit Center and Pavilion. Is there a pass to view only the exhibits?

Only paid Symposium registrants, exhibitors or registered visitors are allowed in the Exhibit Center and Pavilion. We do not offer an exhibits-only pass. All visitor passes are reserved and designated by exhibiting companies. The Space Foundation does not have the authority to issue visitor passes.

May I take photos at the Symposium?

Yes, photography and videotaping are allowed at the Symposium, throughout the venue, the program and the exhibit center, excluding private meetings and classified programs.
