Getting Started

Registration and housing are now open. Secure your spot by March 18 to save at least $85. Sponsoring society member trainees, postdoctoral fellows and students receive complimentary registration until this date.

If you are a member of one of the sponsoring societies (AASLD, AGA, ASGE, SSAT) or have attended DDW in the past six years, you can use one of three ways to locate your record.

  1. Using your email address associated with your membership(s).
  2. Using an email address you previously used to register for DDW.
  3. By searching your last/family name plus your zip/postal code, or using your DDW ID number.

After locating your record or starting a new nonmember registration, you will get a pop up with an option to register using Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Choose the platform and authorize InGo to access to the account. This option will:

  • Auto-fill some information for you, speeding up the registration process (if you choose LinkedIn or Facebook). 
  • Allow you to see who else is attending DDW, as well as who else from your specific social networks.
  • Allow you to invite your colleagues via direct social media messages, and share your excitement about DDW at the end of the registration process.

Step 1: Name and Address

You will be asked to enter your name, professional designation(s), company, department, job title, and mailing address. Please enter your information carefully, as it will be used for your name badge and name badge mailing address if you elect to receive your materials in the mail. Please note that the last day to register and receive your badge in the mail is March 18, 2020. Additionally, starting this year badges will only be mailed to attendees from the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Step 2: Registrant Profile

You will be asked a series of demographic questions. Your answers will be kept confidential and will help us ensure that future DDWs meet your educational needs.

Step 3: Package Selection

You will register for DDW and choose the ticketed sessions you wish to attend. Attendance for these sessions is limited, and some will sell out early. Registration categories and prices are:
