ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

The link to the Sign-Up Genius for these additional options is now live: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b084cada92ea7fb6-sample

In addition to the regular benefits of attending the SPACE Conference, there are some additional options for attendees.  Some are free, and some are available at a cost.  Some have very limited availability and are first come, first served.  Please see the details below. 

An email was sent to all registered attendees on Thursday, May 2 to alert everyone that the sign-up would open on Saturday, May 4.  If you are interested in a spot that is already filled, continue to monitor the sign-up to see if a slot opens. 

Please check the session schedule prior to sign-up to prevent double-booking.  Attendees who are no longer able to attend or are no longer interested in attending one of the options signed up for should remove that registration on Sign-up Genius to allow someone else the opportunity to attend.

NOTE: All Tours and Flights are subject to weather, or cancellation or change based on Kennedy Space Center's Operational schedule.
