FAQs

Confused? We Can Help!

Q. I am an “industry colleague.” Why is my registration $2,500/$3,000?
A. We have a policy which requires consultants, attorneys, vendors and manufacturers to sponsor at least at the Silver level. This allows those participants to take advantage of the intimate venue, quality program, and networking opportunities that, together, make for a superb marketing environment. Registration at the Industry Colleague level, therefore, includes Silver Sponsorship. For more information, view the sponsorship details here. To sign up, contact the Fibi Duke, NIPPC’s Programs Manager at fduke@nippc.org

A. Yes! All presenters must register for the conference. This is so you can be registered as an attendee with all our other participants, reserve a hotel room, and be signed up for all conference activities.
