Group Registration Information

GROUP DISCOUNTS: Do the math and you'll find that the discounted rates for group registration may save you enough money to allow you to bring more employees to the PEI Convention at the NACS Show. There's no better way to keep your team on top of the latest products and services in the industry. And there's no better place to build industry contacts and awareness.


For corporate member companies that bring five or more employees to the convention, PEI will discount the amount of registration you pay. We do this because we believe your company benefits from being able to cover multiple education sessions and by having more representatives on the trade show floor. Bringing your team to the PEI Convention at the NACS Show will ensure that your company literally is able to cover more ground.

  • All registrants must be paid by one credit card
  • Registration must be made before the deadline for the early-bird rate
  • Only available for PEI members of corporate membership divisions (Operations & Engineering members do not qualify for group discount rate).

All badges for the group will be mailed to one address. If you must cancel one or more of your group and in doing so the number falls below five, the regular registration price will be in effect for the remaining attendees and your refund will reflect the difference in fees.


Badges will be mailed to registrants with a mailing address in the United States or Canada beginning mid-September. Please register by September 9, 2016 to be eligible to receive your badge in the mail. If you register after the deadline, your badge will be available for pick up at the PEI Registration Desk on-site in Atlanta.

Remember! If you register in time to receive your badge in the mail, be sure to bring it with you to the PEI Convention at the NACS Show! If you forget, go to the PEI registration counter with a photo ID. A reprint fee of $25 will be charged for the first reprint. If you misplace your badge on-site, the full onsite registration fee will be charged for a new badge.
