Registration Rates

Registration for the 2020 NCTE Annual Convention includes access to all General Sessions, concurrent sessions, Special Interest Group meetings, the Now Screening film festival, NCTE Central, and the Exhibit Hall. Attendees who have already registered but wish to add meal tickets, workshops, or other activities can use the unique URL sent to them in their receipt and add tickets to their registration.

Register by November 9 for the best rates. After November 9, registrations will still be accepted here as well as onsite at the Colorado Convention Center at the higher price.

 

NCTE Members Please Note: It is important that you use the exact last name and email combination that you use with your NCTE account. If you have a Gmail address on file with NCTE but try to use your school email, our database won’t know who you are and won’t find a match—it assumes you are a nonmember. Similarly, if you have a hyphenated last name on your NCTE account but enter your name with a space instead of the hyphen when registering, the database will not find a match.
