Do I have to be a member to attend the event?

Yes. In order to attend HARDI’s Annual Conference you must be a current member and have current dues.

What are the fees associated with the Annual Conference?

All attendees must pay for a registration fee that grants them access to the event at different levels. The booth program has an additional fee associated with the program which is in addition to the individual’s registration. Also, there is an additional fee associated with the solutions center if any eligible member wants to participate in that during the event.

What is included in the Full Executive Registration?

The full executive registration includes the opening reception, all general sessions, breakout sessions (unless otherwise indicated) and the closing reception/dinner. If you are a supplier or vendor and have purchased a booth space for the Booth Program you and other individuals from your company/brand participating will be granted access as well. If your organization or brand does not have a booth, you will not be granted access.

What is included with the Monday Only registration option?

The Monday only registration is a registration option mainly for Suppliers and Service Vendors that have a booth space reserved in our Booth Program. Monday only registrations are given access to all the sessions that take place on the Monday of the event including both general sessions and any breakout sessions (unless otherwise noted).

What is the difference between the Solutions Center and the Booth Program?

The Solutions Center is only open to Service Vendors, Marketing/Purchasing/Cooperatives and Affiliate members. The Solutions Center takes place on Sunday and part of the day Monday during the sessions throughout the conference hallways/foyers. The Booth Program is open to Suppliers and Service Vendors, Marketing/Purchasing/Cooperatives and Affiliate members and takes place in the afternoon on Monday. HARDI holds no sessions during the hours that are scheduled for the Booth Program.
