See You at Registration

When you arrive at the Annual Assembly, one of the first things you should do is pick up your registration materials.

On October 4, all Annual Assembly registrants received an email with a bar code (check your junk email folder if you do not recall this message). Keep this email message so you can scan the bar code at our registration kiosks to check-in. If you registered a guest, your guest also received an email with a bar code. This message was sent to the email address provided for that guest.

Located in the D Lobby on the Meeting Room Level of the Colorado Convention Center, registration offers convenient hours for you:

  • Wednesday, October 11: 1 pm–8 pm
  • Thursday, October 12: 7 am–7 pm
  • Friday, October 13: 7 am–5:30 pm
  • Saturday, October 14: 7 am–5:30 pm
  • Sunday, October 15: 7 am–11 am

At the registration desk, you will also receive a ticket for a complimentary #PhysiatryDay2017 t-shirt. Take your ticket to the Member Solution Center to pick up your t-shirt, and make sure to wear it on Friday, October 13 for Physiatry Day!
