For those attending the in-person conference, you must wear your conference badge during the duration of the event. All price changes occur at 11:59 p.m. ET.

How to Use Your Complimentary Full Conference Registrations

Some sponsorship and presentation opportunities include complimentary full conference registrations as part of package benefits, which can be used for either the online or both online and in-person experience.

EDUCAUSE staff will send your organization's primary logistics contact a confirmation email when an opportunity has been secured, which will include a promo code to share with applicable personnel (if your secured opportunity offers any complimentary registrations).

These promo codes can be used by your company personnel or you may share them with your institutional clients or presenters.

When inviting your staff, institutional clientele, or presenters to attend EDUCAUSE 2021 and offering them one of your complimentary full conference registrations:

  • Include your promo code and the link to Annual Conference Registration in your message, so invitees can register themselves as an attendee.
  • Ask your invitees to enter the provided promo code at the beginning of their registration. This will $0 their full conference, in-person registration fee.

Your invitees may redeem your promotional code during their event registration any time. (Please be sure to use them all, as they are non-refundable.)
