CITT/ICTS Rendez-vous 2020 becomes virtual

August 17 - 20, 2020


This year, Rendez-vous is presented on a Pay What You Can basis. We recognize the enormous effect on the production industry of the COVID-19 virus and the associated loss of work many of our members are experiencing, and as such we have given a number of options for payment, including $0. We want everyone to be able to experience Rendez-vous. Please select the amount that reflects what you can comfortably afford at this time.

Easy registration process:

Step 1 - Select the Full Conference Pass of your choice from our Pay What You Can list below - Any Pass gives you access to ALL the activities.

Step 2 - Shortly after completing the registration and checkout process, registrants will receive two emails: one that contains your invoice and a second one with the complete list of Zoom links to register individually to the conference activities.

Step 3 - Register for each activities you would like to attend and... voilà! you are set to enjoy our virtual Rendez-vous. See you online!
