"I selected my workshops, but can I still change one or two of them at Congress?"
"May I exchange my Congress tickets?"
Yes. For Congress you have the following options:
  1. You may use the tickets you receive; or
  2. You may exchange your tickets (beginning noon on Friday) at the Ticket Exchange window located at the Registration Booth; or
  3. Just use the ticket you were assigned for the workshop you would like to attend. Once all properly ticketed attendees are admitted, then the workshop is opened up to other ticket holders -- if there is available seating.
Your ticket is always good for an Arena (English workshop) or Hall B (Spanish workshop) seat, which is always the most popular workshop from each period. You can find listings of who is appearing in the Arena and Hall B on our Updates Page at
