Exhibitors must register with an authorization code issued by PRPD upon submission of an exhibit space contract.  Exhibit space comes with one complimentary full conference badge.  Full conference badges for additional booth staff are $450 per person for PRPD members and $750 for non-members, regardless of the date of registration.  Badges cannot be shared and staff must perform significant work at the exhibit space to qualify.


Registration confirmation will arrive via email within 24 hours of submitting an online registration. Please be sure to present your email confirmation and government-issued ID when you arrive for your credentials and check the web site regularly for an updated agenda.


You will be required to show a current, valid government picture ID (driver’s license, passport, etc) to pick up your registration materials.  Registration will generally be open just before the start of each day’s activities and will close at approximately 5pm.

Your badge should be worn at all times and is required for admission to all events.


Substitutions, including those made on site, are allowed with the permission of the original registrant. A substitution is a straight transfer of registration credentials with no adjustment to the registration category or payment. If when making a substitution you require an alternate payment, such as a change in credit card, or payment method, the original registration will be canceled and refunded less a $50 processing fee.  The new registration will be processed at the current and appropriate rate based on PRPD member status.


Registrants who are unable to attend may substitute another person.  In the event no substitution can be made, submit a cancellation request in writing to registration2012@anidealpartner.com.  Cancellation requests will be refunded as follows:

  • Request received by 7/31/12 = Registration fee paid less $75 processing fee
  • Request received between 8/1/12 and 8/20/12 = 50% of the registration fee
  • Request received on or after 8/20/12 = No refund

If you must cancel after 9/1/12, please send a replacement to capitalize on your investment.  Refunds will be processed after the conference and no later than November 30, 2012.

PRPD and The Bridge Group (the contracted agent for registration and payment processing) reserve the right to cancel duplicate or unpaid registrations without notice.

If you have specific questions about the registration process, please contact us at registration2012@anidealpartner.com.

The LVH is conveniently located to McCarran International Airport.  The airport is ranked among the 12 busiest airports in the world and offers direct flights to more than 125 US cities.  Airport shuttles are the most cost-effective way to the hotel and can be less than $10.  Taxi fares run about $25 one way ($3.30 to start the meter and $2.65 is added to your trip for every mile).

Parking is on your own, uncovered and free in The LVH North Tower parking garage, as well as in their SUPERBOOK® parking lot.  Valet parking is also available for a fee at the Main Hotel entrance.

The LVH is the last stop along the Las Vegas Monorail and is just a few blocks away from the Strip.  Each PRPD full conference participant will receive a complimentary three-day pass for the Las Vegas monorail with their name badge. 

The monorail is the preferred mode of transportation to the Opening Reception and the Thursday Cirque du Soleil LOVE show.  Please plan to check in for your badge and monorail pass well before registration closes on Tuesday (6:00pm) so you will have at least 30 minutes to get to the Opening Reception.
