Registration Fees:

Registration is now full for Hobsons U.  Now that capacity is met we can only accept additional attendees as space becomes available. We encourage you to register only if you plan to attend so as to not take spots from other interested attendees.  If you have registered and your plans have changed, please let us know so we can plan appropriately.  Cancellation fees do apply (see below).

There is a nominal cost to attend Hobsons U. For the first two attendees from your institution the cost is $199.  All additional attendees (three or more) incur a registration fee of $350.

Be sure to save your login information for our registration system so you can update your selections between now and the event, including adding Workshops in the future.

Workshop Fees:

Enhance your conference experience by participating in our pre-conference workshops on Monday, July 21st.  Visit our Workshops page to see all the details.   There is a price per workshop, ranging from $80 for the Fundamentals session to $350 for the Custom Workshop.  All workshop fees must be paid during registration.  The deadline for adding a workshop is June 30th.

Cancellation Fees:

If for some reason you are unable to attend after you register, please update your registration or let us know so we can assist you with that.  Please note there are penalties for late cancellation due to the administrative and other costs we will incur.

Cancellation by May 31st will allow a full refund with no cancellation penalty. Cancellation in June will allow a full refund, less a $100 cancellation penalty.  Any cancellation after June 30th will forfeit your full registration fee (or incur you a cancellation penalty of $199 if you did not pay a registration fee due to an early bird discount.)

Workshops may be cancelled by June 30th for a full refund.  Any cancellation after June 30th will forfeit your full workshop fee.

Thank you for your cooperation with these policies so we can maximize attendance and avoid unnecessary costs.
