        Exhibitor contacts are emailed an invitation to register. A link to their registration record is included in the email. Each exhibitor is entitled to six registrations per 10x10 booth (e.g. a 10x20 booth receives 12 registrations). Each registration exceeding the entitled amount will cost $150.00.

        How do I obtain a letter of invitation to an NCTM event?

        Individuals traveling from outside of the United States to attend a NCTM event may request a Letter of Invitation to the event. The letter may be used to support an individual's request for organizational or governmental clearance to attend the event.

        Individuals requesting a Letter of Invitation to an NCTM event must be fully registered - including payment in full - for the NCTM event for which they are requesting an invitation. Individuals do not have to be a member of NCTM to request a Letter of Invitation.

        • Be addressed directly to the individual requesting the invitation
        • Include the name, date, and location of the NCTM event
        • Indicate the individual's responsibility for all expenses related to his/her participation in the NCTM event (including registration, travel and accommodations)
