Member Registration Pricing Eligibility

On Site Registration — Member Pricing

To qualify for member rates at the time of registration, you must have a current individual membership for FY25, which has a paid date through June 30, 2025, or beyond. Members can log in and renew or join SWE at any time. All members must use their SWE member credentials to log in and register. If you log in with an email that is not associated with your SWE member account, you will not receive SWE member pricing.

On Site Registration — Nonmember Pricing

All attendees without a current membership will receive nonmember pricing for the on site event. Nonmember attendees who use a bulk corporate discount code will not receive an FY25 SWE membership with their registration. If you are a nonmember of SWE:

  • Click the attendee registration
  • Create an account with SWE
  • Return to this page to register
  • Click attendee registration again to log in

Memberships can be added to a registration for an additional cost.

WE24 Registration Types

The registration portal is divided into the following four categories: Professional, Collegiate, Exhibitor, and Invent It. Build It. (which includes programs for pre-college students, parents, and educators).

    • Promo Codes: Only one promo code per attendee can be used for professional registration.
    • Career Fair Access: FY25 members will receive priority access to the WE24 Career Fair. There will be nonmember hours for those who do not have SWE membership.

    Exhibitor registration is divided into two sections:

    • Exhibitor Full Registration: This registration type includes access to the exhibit hall at all times plus full WE24 access. The number of these registrations is limited to the allotment defined by SWE.
