Registration for the CGA Conference & Expo is open

What's Included with My Registration Fee

There’s never been a more appropriate time to get together and build your network than now. Resources are finite and the #CGAExpo recognizes your investment in attending. Most meal functions including breakfast, luncheons and open-bar receptions are held on the Expo floor or in the General Session Theater. All coffee breaks and even damage prevention’s biggest night, the CGA Night of Networking presented by Urbint is included in the registration fee.

Less of a trade fair and more of an exhilarating look towards the future, the 50,000 square foot Expo Hall showcases cutting edge technology and industry-leading products. In addition, the 50,000 square foot Dig, Demo, Discuss outdoor expo will provide a mesmeric opportunity to use tools and resources that play a pivotal role in reducing damages to the nation’s infrastructure.

The only additional fees you will incur are if you choose to play in the Call Before You Divot Classic, the official golf tournament of the CGA; or one of the offsite tours offered on the final afternoon of the event.

Fraud Warning

CGA has been alerted of attempts being made asking attendees and exhibitors to secure 2023 CGA Conference & Expo hotel rooms through a third-party vendor. There is NO company or individual affiliated with CGA with the ability to resell the CGA room block at the Caribe Royale, the site of the 2023 Conference. Although seemingly official, they ARE NOT. Only refer to for direct links. Once you have registered for the conference via the website, you will receive a link to the discount room block in your registration confirmation email. As a reminder, CGA does not sell registration lists, rooms or other Conference assets.
