Due to high demand, general registration is sold out. If you weren’t able to secure a spot at GHC 17, we understand your disappointment.

We would love to accommodate everyone who wants to attend GHC, but as the conference grows rapidly — attendance has jumped from 4,500 in 2013 to over 18,000 in 2017— we must balance increased demand with our goal of delivering a high-quality experience for attendees. To ensure the quality of our programming and to respect safety, facility, and logistical considerations, we are unable to expand the capacity of GHC.

We know many of you have tried to contact us about partially completed registrations via email, and we will be responding to those messages as quickly as we can. Please be patient; we will work through that backlog of email requests this week, and hope to resolve those issues currently in the queue on a case-by-case basis.

We sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm for GHC and your commitment to women in technology. We hope to see you next year.

But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the exciting action happening in Orlando. We will stream all keynotes. Additionally, ABI.Local, our network of local communities, will host some events to bring the inspiration and connection found at GHC to their local communities. Check the ABI.Local website in September for information about these events.

*Academic Registration: Professors of various ranks, lecturers, and researchers who are based at an academic institution may use these registrations. Acting presidents, deans, department chairs, and other administrators/staff members employed by an academic institution may also register as academics. Academics must show a valid identification from an academic institution upon badge pick-up.

**Student Registration: We define students as individuals who will be enrolled in an accredited, degree-granting program at an academic institution on a full- or part-time basis in October 2017. Student registrations are not available to those participating in: bootcamps, certificate programs, licensing programs, or for-profit colleges/universities, unless individuals are simultaneously enrolled at an accredited, degree-granting academic institution. Students must show a valid identification from an academic institution upon badge pick-up.
