    Fees and Payment Policy

    Standard fee for attending the Conference is outlined in the pricing section. This registration fee includes access to presentation materials (PDF only).

    If registering with an early bird discount rate, or any special rates, payment must be submitted by the discount expiration date.



    Public Sector Pricing

    ACAMS is proud to be a community of private and public sectors industry professionals. In order to facilitate wider participation in our events, we offer special rates for public sector delegates.


    Representatives of the following types of organization are eligible for these preferential rates:


    • Government and public organization (at federal, regional and local levels) including central banks, state regulators, FIUs, law enforcement and military
    • International bodies e.g. Europol, European Commission, the Financial Action Task Force and MONEYVA
    • NGOs and Arm’s Length Bodies
    • Publicly funded academic institutions - both academic staff and students
    • Think tanks
    • 3rd Sector, not-for-profit, registered charities  


    Public Sector attendees are eligible for a reduced price at a flat rate.


    If attendees register at the public sector rate and are not eligible for preferential rates, we will invoice the difference.



    Refund and Cancellation Policy

    Conference passes are non-refundable. Pass holders may request a pass transfer to another person, colleague, or client up until June 3, 2024. If you are unable to transfer the pass to another person for the 2024 event, you can transfer your pass to the next in-person event. Please note that if the transfer is made from an ACAMS member to a non-ACAMS member, you will be charged the difference in cost. If the transfer is from a non-ACAMS member to an ACAMS member, the non-ACAMS member will receive a credit in their account. Refunds will not be available.

    Health & Safety Policy

    ACAMS considers the health and safety of all conference attendees a priority. We also encourage all attendees to take necessary protective measures for their individual health circumstances. While masks are no longer required, they remain optional for anyone choosing to wear one. Sanitization stations will also be available throughout the meeting space and those that wish to maintain social distance should do so. If you want to wear a mask but forget yours, please visit our Registration Services Desk for a disposable mask.



    Dress Code

    Business attire is suitable for all conference sessions and receptions. For the pre-conference training day, business casual is appropriate. Conference Center room temperatures can be on the cooler side, so we recommend dressing with this in mind.

    Dietary Requirements

    If you have any special dietary requirements, please contact us at least 30 days before the start of the event. Our team will do their best to accommodate these requests, however requests received less than 30 days before the conference cannot be guaranteed.

    Name Badges

    You will be asked to present photo ID before being issued with a conference badge onsite. It is very important to wear your badge during the conference as entrance to all sessions, the exhibition hall, and networking receptions is by badge only. There is a US$50 replacement charge for lost badges, payable at the registration desk. Conference badges are not transferable and must not be shared.


    Your registration and attendance at this conference constitutes an agreement by the registrant to ACAMS’ use and distribution (both now and in the future) of the registrant or attendee’s image or voice in photographs, videos, electronic reproduction and audio reproduction.



    ACAMS Credits

    ACAMS members will earn 12 ACAMS credits for attending the conference.



    Certificate of Participation

    The Certificate of Participation will be sent to participants’ email address within two weeks after the conference.
