Registration for DPI'02
DPI '02 attendees can sign up for Full Conference Registration … or build the Seminar/Social Package of their choice. While of course the Full Conference Registration is available, and most people will avail themselves of this option, a series of partial registration packages is also available this year. It is expected that this will bring many additional digital graphics professionals, those who can afford a day or so away from the shop, but not the time for the entire Conference. There are several options if one does not want to register for the entire Annual Conference. A basic registration package of three seminar tickets, or passes (your choice) plus one breakfast or lunch, can be purchased. And if additional sessions are desired, they can be purchased individually as add-ons to the basic package. The seminar pass is good for any educational session, and reservations for specific programs are not required.
