Save $$$ – Register Now for Long Beach
Planning on a trip to the AAPG Annual Convention in Long Beach, Calif., this April?
If so, an important deadline date is looming this month:
Feb. 7 is the meeting’s first preregistration deadline; register by that date and you’ll save up to $135 on your registration fees.
February also is a good time to get a guaranteed reservation in the AAPG block of hotel rooms, all of which are located conveniently close to the meeting site at the Long Beach Convention Center.
This year’s annual convention and exhibition will be held April 1-4, built on the versatile theme “Understanding Earth Systems – Pursuing the Checkered Flag.”
It’s the first time AAPG has held its national meeting in California since the 1996 convention in San Diego, and organizers expect a large attendance.
While registration will be open throughout the meeting, those attending can save money by signing up now.
For example, AAPG members who register by Feb. 7 can do so for $295; after that, the fee goes to $350 until March 22, and $430 after that.
For Emeritus members registration fees are $148 by Feb. 7, $175 by March 22 and $215 after that. For nonmembers, the tiered fees for the same deadlines are $395, $450 and $530.
Online registration (using a credit card) is available at www.aapg.org/longbeach2007/registration.cfm.
The same Web address will get you to the housing reservation area, where you can secure your hotel room in the AAPG block of hotels.
Specifics also are available for the All-Convention Luncheon, featuring Michael J. Economides’ talk on “Energy Geopolitics,” and on the large exhibition featuring the latest in industry technology and information.
(A reminder: Exhibit space contracts remain available on a first-come, first-served basis, at www.appg.org.)
