Meals and Name Badges / Booth Personnel

Meals and name badges for two people per booth are included in your registration. You will need to sign up any additional people working in your booth before the Conference begins.  An email will be sent to you as part of your exhibit packet which will ask you to sign up EVERYONE attending in your booth.  If you already know the names of those who will be in your booth you can submit them now by signing in to your booth profile with MapDynamics HERE. This link also allows you to access your online booth profile and add more information about your company, change the admin or public contact, or add booth personnel. Use the credentials you created at registration, and log in to the MapDynamics Website to access or edit your info.

PLEASE NOTE: Every person attending in your booth needs to be registered. They will then get a name badge in your booth packet at conference.  That name badge gives you access to the Exhibit Hall and the meals.  We will ALSO give everyone a lunch ticket each day for each person. (In the past your name badge was your lunch ticket.  We will now give each person a name badge PLUS an individual lunch ticket. The pricing will remain the same.)  There will be one, NON-REPLACEABLE lunch ticket provided per registered person per day.  At lunch time, bring this ticket to the lunch line of your choice.  (The Awards Banquet is not included in the booth price, and must be purchased separately if you wish to attend.)

Hotel Accommodations

All reservations are handled directly with the hotel. There are many hotels to choose from in the St. George area. The hotels listed here have offered our attendees a discounted rate.  Unless otherwise noted, when making your reservations with these hotels, mention you are with the Rural Water conference to get the specialty rate. And remember, hotels fill up quickly down there and most discounted rates expire a month before the Conference so make your reservations early!

 PLEASE NOTE: Rural Water is not in any way a party to hotel rates or accommodations. We have simply asked these hotels to give our attendees a discounted rate and they have agreed to do so. All hotel arrangements, rates and policies are at the discretion of the hotels themselves, and reservations, rates and agreements are between the hotel and the guest staying with them.
