PRICING

Registration is open Aug 1 until October 17 or until the conference sells out. You cannot buy tickets on site! 

Registration includes all programming (Thursday evening through Saturday); breakfast on Friday and Saturday, lunch on Friday, receptions on Friday, and coffee breaks. Pre-conferences require an additional fee and can be purchased at the same time as your main conference ticket. The Common Market tour also requires an additional ticket, please purchase in advance. The Culinary Literacy program also requires an additional ticket, please purchase in advance.

This year, NESAWG is instituting an optional tiered pricing structure. We are doing this so we can continue to offer lower cost tickets to those who need it, while raising funds to support lower cost tickets and our scholarship fund. We offer suggestions for each ticket price, but leave it to you to purchase the ticket that works best for your individual or organizational budget. A small processing fee charged by the registration site will be added to your registration cost upon checkout.
