By selecting this option, an invoice will automatically be generated and e-mailed to you. The invoice will include your event selections and instructions on where to submit the payment. Once payment is received, the credit will be applied toward your record and you will receive your event confirmation details.

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 the 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 are automatically generated after registration is completed and is included in your confirmation email. If you cannot locate your confirmation email, visit Launchsquid.com to retrieve. Otherwise, please send your request to [email protected].

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.

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.

Where can I park?

The Broadmoor does have limited parking available in their parking garage for $15/day. We encourage the use of off-site parking at the nearby Broadmoor World Arena with complimentary shuttle service, or the use of complimentary shuttle services which transport attendees to/from our offsite hotels to the event. You can see participating Space Symposium hotels on the Lodging page.
