INSEA 2019


Registration Update | Our registration system will open January 3, 2019 (Vancouver time). Check for links here on that day or later.

Here are a few details you may wish to know in advance of our registration launch.

Registration Rates | Deadline of March 15

  • Early bird and presenter registration | $225 Canadian

  • Early bird Student | $120 Canadian (must prove full time status)

  • Accompanying person | $80 Canadian (access only to reception, exhibition halls)

All registrants must prove they are members of InSEA or BCATA (local art teachers) by providing a membership number that will be cross checked with the organization before the registration process is complete. Delegates are encouraged to become members as soon as possible and to allow a minimum of three to four weeks for the organizations to process memberships. These are volunteer organizations so we want to respect their time.

In order to keep the MAKING: InSEA 2019 registration fees as low as possible, we have not included catering in the registration prices with the exception of an opening reception and beverage breaks. Moreover, the boat cruise and banquet require separate tickets to attend. The organizers reserve the right to cancel either of these social events, if minimum numbers are not confirmed. If there is a cancellation, we will notify you in advance and refund the ticket price.

Additional fees (by March 15) include | July 12 Banquet and dance: $145 Canadian. July 13 Canadian Harbour Cruise: $30 (evening and including transportation from and to UBC)
After March 15 | Banquet and dance: $180. Canadian Harbour Cruise: $40 Canadian

We are capping the congress at 800 delegates. We encourage everyone to register as early as possible. We anticipate having only online registration. Should space still be available after March 15, registration fees will go up:

  • Regular delegate | $300 Canadian

  • Full time student | $180 Canadian (with proof from institution)

  • Accompanying person | $110 Canadian

Regular registration includes access to all sessions, keynotes, exhibitions, exhibitors, opening reception, beverage breaks and the program.

We look forward to welcoming a large international community to Vancouver!

Please keep in mind, that international travelers must have valid travel documents to enter the country. Document requirements vary depending on which country you’re travelling from. When you enter Canada, a Canada Border Services Agency officer will ask to see your passport and a valid visa, if one is necessary. For specific information on travel documents required to visit Canada from countries please visit the Government of Canada website, link below.

Note: Canada introduced a new entry requirement, known as the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), for visa-exempt foreign nationals travelling to Canada by air. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travelers with a valid visa. Entry requirements for other methods of travel (land and sea) have not changed. Eligible travelers can apply online for an eTA. This entry is now mandatory, and travelers will need an eTA before they can board a flight to Canada.
