With the continued growth of the Annual Meeting , the AOM began issuing a wristband for guests in 2019 as a means to better clarify, enforce and manage our existing guest policy. A fee of $30 was instituted to help defray the rising costs associated with guest attendance.
The purchase of a $30 Guest Wristband includes complimentary Wi-Fi (in designated areas), access to the Exhibit Hall, Exhibit Hall Opening Reception, the All-Academy Networking Breakfast, The Presidential Address and Awards Ceremony and The All-Academy Reception. Guests must wear their official Guest Wristband to enter the Exhibit Hall and the featured All-Academy Events. Guests are not permitted access to pre-conference workshops or any scholarly sessions for any reason, at any time. To attend sessions, guests must be registered for the Annual Meeting.
A Guest refers to a spouse, child 18 years or older, partner, or companion who is not an active or former member of the Academy and is NOT associated with the Academy. There is a limit of 1(one) guest per registered attendee. Children under the age of 18 do not require a wristband and must be supervised at all times.
Sign in to your AOM account and select the "Annual Meeting" tab. Scroll down to the " Guest Pass " button where you may add or edit guest information.
To cancel a guest registration for any reason, or to cancel and charge an alternate credit card, the cancellation request must be submitted by the registrant in writing to the Academy of Management. A processing fee of $30 will be applied at the time of cancellation.
