NEW for 2021 CSTE Annual Conference – Registration Options for In-Person Attendance or Virtual Only Attendance.

Persons attending the event in-person will benefit from a high level of interaction and networking opportunities. Additional measures for social distancing and hygiene will support a safe and comfortable experience. Virtual-only registration may be converted to an in-person attendance no later than May 24, 2021 and must include payment of fee difference. In-person registration may be converted to a virtual-only registration no later than May 24, 2021, including a refund of the difference in fees. Both registration options will have access to recorded sessions whether in-person or virtually after the conference.

Due to preparations required to provide attendees with customized links prior to conference dates, all attendees must register no later than May 24, 2021. Attendees must register in order to access program information and for virtual attendees their individualized platform link. Registrations this year are not refundable after May 24, 2021. And, due to capacity limits at this time for in-person attendance and individualized platform access, guest registration will not be available for in-person attendance this year.
