Share This Page
Will there be onsite registration available at the Bellagio?
Yes, but we suggest you register prior to the event for your convenience. If you do decide to register onsite, you can do so starting at 2:00pm on October 20, 2015 in the Grand Foyer, right outside Grand Ballroom 4-9.
How do I receive the group discount pricing?
There are two levels of group discount pricing. 5 attendees will each receive $100 off and 10 attendees will each receive $200 off the current registration price. When you register online the system will automatically apply the group discount rates when you enter in 5 and 10 passes on one order. All registrations will need to be paid on one credit card in order to receive the group discount.
I cannot pay for my registration with a credit card, can I be invoiced?
In order to be invoiced for your registrations our accounting team requires a minimum charge of $5,000 on your order. All smaller purchases will need to be made via credit card. Do not register on the website, please contact Leanna at email@example.com and we will issue you an invoice and get you registered.
What if I need to cancel someone in my group registration?
Please contact Leanna at firstname.lastname@example.org to process a cancellation within our cancellation policy. We will refund the amount of the pass less the amount the registrants on that order would have paid without the group discount.
What is your registration cancellation policy?
If you have to cancel your registration, please contact Leanna at email@example.com. There is a $150 handling fee for cancellations received on or before September 18, 2015. We regret we cannot process any refunds for cancellations after this date. Registered participants who fail to attend the Automotive Marketing Roundtable will be liable for the full fee.
If I am unable to make the AMR, can someone go in my place?
Yes, of course. Registrations may be transferred to another attendee at no additional charge. We ask that you notify Leanna at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can amend appropriate records. Please include the name of the current registrant and the name, title, company and email address of the person who will be taking their place. We will not be able to make any registration changes after October 12, 2015.
Are there dealer, student, government, or military discounts?
We do not have these types of discount available.
A LOT of people (based on previous years, we're expecting 1,400+ automotive industry professionals in 2015)! You can get a full list of AMR attendees at the registration desk when you check in. The list will also be available on October 14 via the event app. Until then, check out who's attended past AMRs here >
