May I buy a ticket on site?
Please check at the conference registration area / ticket sales counter to see if tickets are available. A minimum number is available on site but once they are sold, we are sold out.

Do I have a ticket?
Stop by the CPRS Conference & Expo registration desk and ask.  If your agency purchased a number of tickets we may not know who is included in that group, so you may want to also check with your agency contact person.

What time do we need to arrive at the Banquet?
Agencies receiving an award should have at least one representative check in at 5:30pm to receive instructions on accepting their award on stage.  Please contact Ann Dunleavy for more information about accepting your award.

We need to switch who is coming – who do we tell?
