Registration Details

WE Date lockup

WE21 registration is open and can be accessed here. All registration services will be provided by Convention Data Services (CDS). The only authorized registration site for WE21 is here. To obtain help with your registration, please email SWE@xpressreg.net or call 774.247.4026.

The registration portal is divided into four categories – Professional, Collegiate, Exhibitor, and Invent It. Build It. (including programs for high school, middle school, parents, and educators):

Attendee Type – All post-graduate attendees, speakers, press members, and any non-collegiate or non-exhibitor are considered professional. This may include active career, retired, unemployed, STEM Reentry Task Force or other categories within this type. Both members and non-members may register here.

  • Promo Codes – Only one promo code per attendee can be used for professional registration.
  • Member Status – All SWE Memberships coincide with our fiscal year. Attendees must have an FY22 (07/01/2021 to 6/30/2022) membership before registering for WE21 to receive discounted member pricing during WE21 registration. An FY22 SWE membership is included with non-member registration types; those who purchase a non-member registration type will receive a code to get a membership shortly after registration. All memberships purchased through WE21 registration are non-refundable. It is the individual’s responsibility to register with the correct username and password associated with their primary membership account to avoid duplicate membership purchases.
  • Career Fair Access – FY22 members will receive priority access to the WE21 Career Fair. There will be non-member hours for those who do not have a membership.

Attendee Type – This includes all collegiate types, both member and non-member, as well as full-time graduate students.

Attendee Type: This registration is limited to ONLY booth personnel and cannot exceed the allocations given to each exhibitor, depending on the size of their booth. Each company-designated booth point-of-contact (POC) will receive a sign-in password once the booth contract is signed and payment is received.

Exhibitor Registration Is Divided Into Two Sections: 

  • Full Registration: This registration type allows the exhibitor access to the exhibit hall during all times and all sessions. This registration type is limited to the allotment defined by SWE. 
  • Exhibitor Floor Only Registration (limited with the cost of $100 per exhibitor) – This registration type only allows access to the WE21 Career Fair floor but cannot access other conference areas without an upgraded registration.
  • Bulk-Upload Requests – Bulk registration requests must be received by 10/1/2021 to be processed in time for WE21. SWE cannot guarantee we can process bulk uploads if data is received after 10/01/2021. 
  • Member Status – Member status is not indicated on exhibitor full, exhibitor floor only, or exhibitor upgraded badges. 

Note: Any solicitation by non-exhibitors (with the exception of special sponsors approved by SWE) will not be tolerated and violators will be asked to leave the building.

Attendee Type – This includes all middle school and high school students, along with parents and educators. IIBI program attendees are at the Outreach EXPO in the morning and programming in the afternoon. Outreach EXPO exhibitors needing badges would register here as well.

  • Registration will open in June 2021. 
  • Promo Code – Only one promo code per attendee can be used for this registration type. A promo code can be created for organizations that want to sponsor several students (for invoice purposes).
  • Registration Types – Middle School Girls Program, High School Girls Program, Parent & Educator Program, and Outreach EXPO Exhibitor.
  • Member Status – Not applicable. 
  • SWENext – Not required but can register girls as SWENexter. May require girls being sponsored by SWE to join SWENext.
  • Career Fair Access – Students under 17 are not permitted on the WE21 Career Fair floor.

Give your employees the opportunity to learn, network, and grow through participation in SWE’s Annual Conference, WE21.

WE21 is on October 21-23, 2021, in Indianapolis, IN.

Hybrid Bulk Registrations (includes both in-person and virtual) are available in increments of 100 and include a 25% discount. For example, 100 registrations is $32,000.

Virtual Only Registrations:

  • 200 Registrations: $10,000
  • 300 Registrations: $15,000
  • Enterprise Access (unlimited professional registrations): $25,000
  • Virtual on-demand content will be available for 3 months post-WE21.

Note: no refunds will be given to registrations that have already been purchased due to the high administrative cost and the deep discount for these bulk professional registration options.
