Payment policy
Full payment is required at the time of registration.

NEI accepts: American Express, VISA, MasterCard or check (payable to Neuroscience Education Institute). All credit card and bank charges are the registrant's responsibility. Returned checks will incur a $35 fee, which must be paid before registration can be completed.

Admittance policy
Only paid registrants wearing a conference badge will be allowed into general session and meal rooms. Throughout the conference you will be asked to show your badge to enter these rooms. (Note: the Hilton Orlando does not have quiet rooms for parents to attend with babies.)

Vegetarian Meals & Food Allergies
A vegetarian option will be available at all meals. If you have a food allergy, complete the online allergy form by November 1, 2018 to ensure an allergen-free meal is available for you onsite.

Kosher meal requests
It is our pleasure to arrange kosher meals for attendees. Since these meals are brought in from an off-site Kosher-certified vendor, there is an additional cost associated with each meal. To help attendees financially, NEI will cover a portion of the extra cost. Requests must be submitted by November 1, 2018.
