Do you offer any comp registrations?We do not offer
complimentary registrations to anyone, including board members and
chapter leadership. This policy is based on a firm commitment to equity
and fairness, out of respect to our customers who pay for the

The Hyatt Regency New Orleans is the venue for Design
Conference and AIGA has partnered with the hotel for discounted guest rooms.
The Hyatt has held these rooms expressly for conference attendees, and AIGA is
obligated to fill the block.
