 2018 Annual Meeting Registration - Advance Registration is CLOSED

The registration fee includes admittance to all of the events surrounding the Annual Meeting unless otherwise noted. Attendees must register in order to attend conference events.

It has come to our attention that companies have been contacting APTA attendees and exhibitors and identifying themselves as having access to APTA’s attendee lists. APTA DOES NOT sell its attendee lists to any vendors or other third parties.  Anyone attempting to sell you this information should be considered fraudulent. APTA strongly recommends that all conference registrants disregard such emails.

 Badges are required for all events.
You must login to complete your online registration. If you do not have a login, you can create one here. If you forgot your password and/or experiencing trouble logging in, please contact APTA membership department at or 202-496-4822.
