Getting Started

DDW 2023 registration is now open. To begin, visit the DDW registration site to start the process of registering and securing housing. Book early to receive discounted pricing through March 15. Sponsoring society member postdoctoral fellows, trainees, residents and students receive complimentary registration until this date.

Choose How You Want to Attend

If you are attending the meeting in person in Chicago, click on the in person icon. If you would like to attend the meeting online, click that icon. If you are registering as an industry supporter, please click on the exhibitor icon. There is also an option to register as a group (intended for 10 or more attendees). 

Join the Community Online and Find Your Record

Once you’ve selected how you want to attend, a pop-up with the choice to register socially using LinkedIn or Twitter will appear. Choose the platform and authorize InGo to access the account. This option will:

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

You can also select “or click here to register with your email.” 

If you are a member of one of the sponsoring societies (AASLD, AGA, ASGE or SSAT) OR have attended DDW in the past 6 years, you can use one of two ways to locate your record:

  1. Using an email address you previously used to register for DDW.
  2. By searching your last/family name plus your zip/postal code.

Once your record is found, click on the “Register Now” button to proceed to Step 1. 

If you are not a member and have not attended DDW in the past 6 years, or cannot locate your record, you can still follow one of the above two options, and then click “Start a new registration.”

Step 1: Name and Address

You will be asked to enter badge information including your name, professional designation(s), company, department, job title and mailing address. Please enter your information carefully. You will also review several DDW policies. 

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: Invite Your Colleagues

Send personal invites and social posts to your colleagues and friends via LinkedIn, Twitter or email to join you at DDW 2023. You can also skip this step for now and invite others later. Check your confirmation email for more information.

Step 4: Package Selection

Registration categories and prices are below. During this step, you will choose whether you would like access to all scientific sessions, or if you are registering for a Postgraduate Course only. Please only select that option if you only want to attend one of the one-day Postgraduate Courses. You can also scroll down register for additional ticketed sessions, including the AGA and ASGE Postgraduate Courses, Breakfast Connections and Meet-the-Professor Luncheons.
