How to register

Before registering, you can review our program here.

If you encounter any issues during your registration, please contact the Virginia Tech Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) office at or (540) 231-5182.

  1. What you need to know before registering:
    • Decide if you would like to participate in an optional conference workshop. View workshops here. You may choose a maximum of ONE workshop (they all occur simultaneously). To participate in a workshop, you must be registered for the conference–there is no “workshop only” option.
    • You do not need to decide which concurrent sessions you will attend. You can choose which session to attend later; this is not included in the registration process.
    • Decide if you would like to purchase a T-shirt. Design closeups and more information on T-shirts here.
  2. Follow the link to our conference registration portal, here.
  3. You will need to create an account with a username and password to register. (If you have previously attended a Virginia EMG College, you may log in with your existing credentials.)
  4. After creating an account/logging in, you will see a page titled “Registration Packages” which shows options for registration.
    • If you would like to attend a workshop, locate the registration choice that lists your workshop and select it. Additional workshop costs are reflected in the adjusted cost for each registration + workshop option. As workshops fill up, they will no longer be available to select. 
    • If you do not plan to attend a workshop, select option 01. “Conference participation-Not attending workshop.”
    • You will have the option to add T-shirts in the next step. 
    • Scroll to the bottom and click “Continue
  5. Next you will see a page with the note “The following optional add-ons are available with your package” which allows you to add T-shirts.
    • You may add as many T-shirts as you want (up to 5). T-shirt size and design will be specified on the next page. All you need to choose on this page is the quantity of long sleeve and the quantity of short sleeve men’s + women’s you plan to order.
    • After you choose an optional workshop and/or T-shirt, scroll to the bottom and click “Continue”
  6. You will see a page titled “Participant Preferences.”
    • If you have added T-shirts in the previous step, you will see options to specify men’s/women’s cut, color, and size. (Note, long sleeve shirt only available in blue dogwood.)
    • Enter your mailing address and click the agreement check at the bottom (mailing address will be used to mail conference welcome “swag” boxes).
    • After you enter your address (and T-shirt options, if applicable), scroll to the bottom and click “Continue”
  7. You will see a page titled “Review and Pay.” Enter your credit card information and click “Pay and register”
  8. You are now registered! You will receive an email from EventMobi prompting you to create an account to access the conference platform.
