Who is a Group Agent?

What are the registration submission deadlines?

  • List Import Deadlines: Your List Import may be submitted any time prior to the deadlines listed below. Please allow 3-business days before you are able to manage your group registration.

    April 17, 2024, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time
  • Online Deadlines: Registration can be added online through April 23, 2024, or when badges are picked up on-site, whichever is earlier. To expedite on-site badge pick-up, enter all your delegates online before coming on-site. Early registration rates are applicable to all registrations received on or before February 21, 2024, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. Late registration rates are applicable beginning February 22, 2024, 12:01 a.m. (No Exceptions)

Multiple or Duplicate Registrations

Each individual may have only one registration record. The AUA Customer Service Team routinely reviews records and eliminates duplicates. In this case, one of the records will be canceled and appear on your list as "canceled." Commonly, a duplicate registration results from a person registered as a group delegate and Exhibitor.

What is the Group Delegate contact information used for?

Delegate name badges have a bar code with their contact information encoded. Group delegates can opt out of receiving information from our Science and Technology Hall exhibitors. Scanning the bar code on the badge gives the delegate's contact information to the exhibiting company. It is crucial to provide accurate mailing and email address information for your group delegates to ensure they receive the products and information they request during the meeting. AUA also uses the data for all post-meeting products such as Webinars, certificates of Attendance, Evaluations, and CME.

Who receives the registration confirmation?

Email confirmations are sent to the Group Agent only. The AUA registration system will not send individual group delegate confirmations; as a Group Agent, you can do so from your Group Portal. In cases where the delegate contacts the AUA Customer Service Team and requests email confirmation, we will send the request to the Group Agent to forward an email confirmation to the delegate.

What is the group contact change policy?

Changes to delegates’ contact information must be done online. Changes can be made through Monday, April 22, 2024, or until badges are picked up on-site, whichever is earlier. Changes to the first and last name and an email address cannot be made online; if the name or the email address contains a misspelling, please contact the AUA Customer Service Team at to have the correction made at no charge.

Please note that changes online are reflected immediately. Requests submitted by phone, email, or fax (subject to processing fees) may take 3 to 5 business days to process.
