We do not hold waiting lists for full plant tours. If there is a particular tour of interest that is full, you may check with the plant tour desk upon arrival to the conference on May 8th for any cancellation or no-show openings.

You may only register for one plant tour. However, once conference registration begins on May 8th, you may check with the plant tour desk for any available open spots.

Please review our cancellation and substitution policies: Cancellation Policy: Upon written notice of cancellation, through April 6, 2018, registration fees will be refunded minus $100 administration fee. After April 6, 2018, no refunds will be issued. All credit card refunds will be issued to the same credit card used at time of registration. Substitution Policy: Substitution of attendees will be granted only upon written notice until May 4, 2018.


Your badge will not be mailed to you. It can be picked up along with a conference program and materials during registration hours. Please reference the agenda page for registration hours.

Please reference the plant tours page and your specific tour listing for special dress code instructions.
