Am I missing something on the registration page? I am single, don't have a buddy to go with, and don't want to spend $447 for the 3 days. Why does the conference sell their registration to include a buddy for so much less than if you wanted to just be single? Is there anyone on this forum who actually has the answer to this? I am really wanting to attend, but have been slow in getting to the registration...now I am just annoyed.

Karen - based on the price you quoted, I'm assuming you're attending as a non-member? If so, the $429 actually includes PPA membership for the first year, plus your pass to Imaging. As you saw, however, there are lots of folks out there in your same situation that, thanks to forums like this, can find someone to register with to split the cost. Hopefully it works out for you. No need to be annoyed :)

If you call IUSA 888-260-0016 they will help you out.

As I understand it you can "Join and Go" (Join PPA for 1 year and full IUSA registration) for only $323. That is a great deal.
