Online Registration

I am having trouble getting started with the online registration.


I cannot find my Registration Confirmation email.

A registration confirmation email is sent automatically once you have completed your online registration. It serves as your official invoice and is sent to the email address you used to register (as well as the email in the “additional email address” field, if entered).


If you have not received your registration confirmation, please follow these steps:
  1. Wait 60 minutes after registering. Occasionally registration confirmations are slightly delayed if the system is particularly busy.
  2. Check your clutter and spam folders.
  3. Email and request that your registration confirmation be resent.


I have already completed my registration, but I need to modify it. How can I do that?

To modify your registration please email
