Registration: 

On-line Registration is now open:

  • We will cut off early-bird registration on 29 February. On-Site registration fees will be imposed on or after 29 February. If you register after 29 February you will not be able to pick up your security badge ahead of time, and therefore, will have to queue for entry into the facility (see security below).
  •  OGC Members Must register through the My Account section of the OGC Member Portal
  •  Non-members and Guest may register directly through the OGC Storefront.

There are Meeting Fees associated with the OGC TC/PC Meetings. Based upon your organization's OGC Membership Level, you will have at least one Complementary registration for each meeting.

Security

Due to security protocols at the World Bank Facility, all attendees must enter with valid government issued photo ID. All attendees will be issued an OGC name badge and a World Bank Security badge. These two badges must be worn at all times throughout the week. In order to avoid the long security queue on Monday morning, those pre-registered prior to 29 February may pick up their OGC name and World Bank security badges on 6 March 2016 from 4-8 pm at the Elephant & Castle, 900 19th St NW, Washington, DC.
