* Registrations purchased online between January 23 and March 1 can be picked up in the will-call area of conference registration.
** Students must present a valid student ID.
*** Seniors must present a valid ID.
**** Bookfair staff registrations are not equivalent to exhibitor access badges and do not permit access to the exhibit halls during set-up or move-out hours.
Your registration will be confirmed by email to the address specified during purchase. Please ensure that your email address is correct when registering, as our system is not able to alert you if you enter an incorrect or incomplete email address. You may change the name and affiliation on your badge through Wednesday, January 22, 2014 on the Conference Registration Management page of your AWP user account.
The registration hall will be set up according to registration period. If you purchased your registration prior to January 22 or received a sponsor registration waiver, approach the preregistered check-in area to retrieve your badge, program, and tote. If you registered during the will-call period, approach a will-call kiosk to check in, print your badge, and retrieve your program and tote. A small number of onsite registration kiosks will be open to walk-ins, but lines may be long. We encourage you to instead purchase a will-call registration online before you arrive at the convention center.
A valid photo ID is required to pick up or purchase any conference registration. Individuals who register or volunteer as students must present a valid student ID.

Sponsor and Literary Partner Registrations
As a benefit to supporting the conference, all sponsors and literary partners receive an allocated number of registration waivers, based on the level of sponsorship. Confirmed sponsors and partners will be contacted by AWP with instructions for submitting their waiver lists. All lists must be received by Wednesday, January 22, 2014. Registration waivers not submitted by that date will be forfeited.
We appreciate all coverage of our annual conference. Requests for press passes must be made in writing from the editor of the media organization on behalf of the journalist to email@example.com by Wednesday, January 22, 2014. To attend as a member of the press, you must present valid press credentials at the preregistered check-in area to receive your conference badge. Photography, videography, and sound recordings are not permitted at the conference without AWP's written consent.
