Conference registration

Registration is now open for the 2020 EMBAC Conference, set for Oct. 25-28 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

EMBAC welcomes both members and non-members who are interested in the EMBA industry or interested in joining EMBAC to its annual conference.

Both members and non-members will use the registration link on this page to register. You may register and pay by credit card from a secure site or pay by check or purchase order.

Special incentives

EMBAC offers an economic incentive for early registration: Members who register online and pay before the early registration deadline of 9 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST), Saturday, Aug. 29, can save $300 off the conference registration fee.

  • If you are an academic member, register before Aug. 29 and pay $995 in conference fees. Conference fees after the early registration deadline increase to $1,295.
  • Academic non-members pay $1,995 in conference fees, regardless of when they register.
  • Note: Conference fees include access to all plenary and concurrent sessions; a welcome reception; breakfasts on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; and lunch on Monday and Tuesday. There is an extra $50 fee for paying by wire, and there are additional fees for preconference offerings.

Those who register and pay before the early registration deadline also qualify for a drawing to receive a free two-night stay at the 2021 conference venue hotel, which will be announced during the 2020 conference in Scottsdale.
