Justify Your Trip
You already know that your time and investment in SAS Global Forum will pay for itself and then some. But you still might need to convince your manager that it’s the best way to make sure your organization is getting the most out of its SAS investment.
What a great idea: Bring your colleagues to SAS Global Forum and save money! Team discounts are available for five or more business and government attendees from the same organization. All organizations must apply for a team discount by March 24, 2017. All team members must be registered by March 31. Team discounts are not available at the on-site registration.
All team members attending SAS Global Forum must be employed by the same organization and named at the same time. Team discounts are only available on the business and government registration fee. They are not available for other types of registrations or extra-fee items. You can have a few placeholders if you do not have all the names, but we need to make sure the discount level is agreed upon upfront.
The number of names submitted on the Team Discount Application Form will determine the level of discount. If a team does not meet the minimum number of team member registrations for the level, their fees may be recalculated to the appropriate level based on the actual number of team members registered. Team discounts will not be recalculated if additional attendees are registered from the same organization.
Designate one person in your organization as the team manager and collect the names of team members. You can have a few placeholders if you do not have all the names, but we need to make sure the discount level is agreed upon upfront. Getting actual names will help the registrar work with you to make sure that registrations are coming in and to monitor how many more to expect. This information should be submitted on the Team Discount Application Form.
A special team code will be assigned to your organization and provided to the team manager. It is the team manager's responsibility to pass that code on to team members. Each team member must submit a separate registration using the team code. The team discount must be in place prior to any team member registering in order for the discount to apply to that registrant. Everyone must register during the same registration period (e.g., early-bird or regular registration).
Organizations must preregister their team members by March 31.
Free Conference Passes for Students
Full-time enrolled students of accredited, degree-granting academic institutions may attend this conference free of charge. The free pass is for the conference only. This discount will automatically apply when you register as a student. Proof of eligibility is required. Please scan and email us documentation proving your eligibility, such as a copy of your current class schedule. You will be contacted if we have questions about your eligibility.
Online registrations must be paid in full by credit card. SAS Global Forum accepts American Express, Mastercard, Visa, Discover and Diners Club. Make sure the billing address on the payment screen reflects the address on your credit card statement. Your card will be immediately charged for your registration fees upon hitting "Submit."
Government organizations may pay by purchase order. Complete the registration form and fax it to 919-677-4444 with your purchase order. We will process and confirm your registration upon receipt.
SAS® Training Points
Save up to 30% on SAS training when you pre-purchase training in bulk. If your organization already participates in the SAS Training Points program, you can use your points to pay for the conference as well as tutorials, training and SAS Certification exams. One point equals $1 so the prices match the Standard Pricing column. To pay for the conference with SAS Training Points, enter discount code EDUPTSCON. To pay for tutorials, training or certification exams with SAS Training Points, enter discount code EDUPTS.
Enterprise Professional Training Offer (EPTO)
If your organization has EPTO units, you can use them to pay for the conference, as well as tutorials, training and SAS Certification exams. To pay for the conference with EPTO units, enter discount code EDUEPTOCON. To pay for tutorials, training or certification exams with EPTO units, enter discount code EDUEPTO.
When paying for the conference or training with SAS Training Points or EPTO units, no other discount applies.
