NEARS Registration


You can also use this program to sponsor the NEARS conference, purchase an advertisement in the NEARS conference book, become a NEARS member, or pay an invoice without registering for the conference.

In all cases, we ask that you fill out the contact information, including name, address, phone number, email address, and the facet of the industry that you are from. (shipper, railroad, etc.)

If you are NOT registering for a conference, click the box that says "Click here if you are NOT registering for a conference," and the registration will be zeroed out on your total.

If you have a discount code, you can enter it in the box after you complete your contact information.

If your balance is zero, you will still need to enter information in the credit card information fields. You can put a series of "9" in those fields, as long as there is no balance, and it will be accepted.

NEARS Vendor Fair


We have 24 tables available for railroad industry vendors to put up a display for the duration of the conference. The Vendor Fair will be located in a convenient and high-traffic area at the conference. If you need anything besides the space and a table, please talk with Executive Director Scott McCalla, and we can discuss arrangements. For those who have business cards or very small displays or give-away items, NEARS will be providing 2 small tables for these objects for no cost. No banners or table-top displays will be acceptable unless a vendor table is purchased.
