How can I purchase tickets and how much are tickets?

Our 2021 registration has not opened yet. Once registration opens, you can purchase tickets via our website. 

Will I be mailed my badges and ticket(s) before the show?

No. In order to expedite orders and do our part to save some trees, we will NOT mail any show credentials to attendees before the show – they will all be given to you at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Simply bring a copy of your confirmation letter to an Express Check-In Counter (either print it out or show it to us on your smart phone). Your credentials will be given to you at this time (this includes your badge/wristband and any additional daily exhibit hall tickets and workshop/class tickets you may have purchased).

Are CEU Credits available for attending classes?

IBS Las Vegas does not offer CEU credits. However, we can provide you with a certificate noting how many class hours were completed at the conference. This certificate can be taken to your state board, and the board will decide whether or not they will award you CEU credits.
