2019 Attendee Registration

Registration is open.

Why register to attend? To experience the trade show, purchase any pre-paid lunches, and/or sign up for any Programming - i.e., CE Courses, Keynotes, Student Programs, Kick-Off Party, and/or Design Crawl.

Scroll down to find the yellow registration button to get started.

Registration Instructions

If you are registering as an Individual, then the process is straightforward. If you want to register a Group, are a conference Speaker, or are an Exhibitor or Sponsor, then we have some additional instructions (please scroll down to the Additional Instructions section).

Regardless of registration type, however:

  • Every registrant must have their own individual email address because the system tracks everyone by their email address, not their name.

  • Any registrant who wants to receive discounted pricing on Continuing Education courses must indicate their Membership type and Membership number. (See our Cost to Attend page for important details regarding Member qualification.)


If you sign up for anything that has a fee associated with it, then payment in full is required at the time of registration. Credit cards accepted: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express.

If you have a Discount Code to discount your registration, then you will use it in the Payment section during the registration process. (Be sure to enter your code exactly as it was given to you, taking care not to type in any spaces or extra characters before, within, or after the Discount Code. You will know that you have entered it correctly when you see an amount deducted from your total.)

Once your online registration is complete, you will receive two emails:

  1. one with your account information that will remind you how to log back into your METROCON19 account to make changes or additions or simply to access your schedule,

  2. and another one with your receipt with your itinerary attached as a PDF

Please allow up to 20 minutes for the emails to land in your inbox.

Accessing and/or Making Changes to your Registration

You may login to the registration website to do any of the following through your Attendee Dashboard:

  • review your order history and resend yourself your receipt

  • download an itinerary showing everything you have registered for

  • reset your password

  • change your contact information and demographic details

  • change your CE Course schedule and/or add and pay for CE Courses

  • change/drop/add and pay for the Keynotes

  • change your lunch selection(s) and/or add and pay for lunch(es)

Additional Instructions


When you register a Group, you will...

  • be able to indicate whether or not you will be attending or are simply acting as an administrator.

  • provide only one physical address for the entire Group.

  • provide First Name, Last Name, Company Name, Phone Number & unique Email Address for each registrant.

  • create a password that will allow you to login later. This password will also be the default password for everyone in your Group to use to login to their own accounts with their own unique email address. Why would you as the administrator need to login? To buy lunches for registrants or yourself, change demographic data for other registrants or yourself, or sign yourself up for programming and/or change your own programming selections. You will NOT be able add or alter other registrants' programming selections. Each registrant will need to login to their own account to alter their programming schedule (or you can login as them and do it for them).

  • NOT be able to log back in and add more registrants to your Group registration right now. That feature is coming soon.

After you register your Group, you will be emailed the receipt showing payment for the entire group, as well as your account information. Each person you registered will also be emailed their account information, and each person will be able to login with their own email address and the default password you set as administrator to access their schedule and/or make changes.


If you have been chosen to speak at the conference, then your email address is in our system. If you do NOT want to sign up for any pre-paid lunches or Programming - i.e., Keynotes, CE Courses, Kick-Off Party, and/or Design Crawl - then you do NOT need to register. We will have your badge waiting for you on-site at the Attendee Registration Desk.

If you DO want to sign up for any of this things, however, then you will need to register as per the instructions emailed to you directly on May 31st by Show Manager Laura McDonald Stewart. If you cannot find that email, please contact Laura directly. Shortly we will also have a Guide to your Speaker Dashboard [PDF].
