Go to FWSA Connect https://connect.fwsa.org
If you already have a user account on FWSA Connect, click the “Login” link in the menu at the top of the page and log in.  If you forgot your password, click the “Forgot your password?” link.  If you do not yet have an account on FWSA Connect, click the “Sign up” link and enter your information.  You will need to confirm your email address by clicking the link in the email you receive from FWSA Connect in order to be able to log in.
Once you are logged in, go to the “Trips & Events” submenu at the top of the page, click “Sponsor / Exhibitor Registration for FWSA Convention”
The Sponsor / Exhibitor Registration page is password protected, to reduce the chance that regular FWSA members will accidentally access it.  To unlock it, enter the password “industry” on the password page presented.  You will only need to do that once.
General information about sponsor / exhibitor registration is on the page, and there are links to view the Convention forms and brochures, for additional information.
Fill out the company name and information.  Please enter the sponsorship information, if you have it, as well as special requirements, such as WiFi, electricity, and banner hanging.  Also, please enter the name of your first attendee, and the first attendee’s information.  Please indicate whether this attendee will attend the Saturday lunch and/or the Saturday banquet.  If so, also enter the attendee’s food restrictions, if any, or “No Food Restrictions.”  Check the boxes for any optional activities for this attendee, and when ready, click the "Register for Sponsor / Exhibitor at FWSA Convention" button at the bottom of the page.
If you did not enter all required information, you will receive a message indicating what additional information is required.  Once the information is correct, you will move to the next step.
If you did not select any options that require a payment, you will receive a message that your registration is complete.  If you did select options that require payment, you will receive a message that your registration is incomplete until it is paid for.  If the information is not correct, click the “Back” button on your browser, correct the information, and click the “Register” button again.
Payment can be made using credit card via PayPal.  Click the “Pay by PayPal” button at the bottom of the page and follow the prompts.  Payment is not complete until you click the “Finalize Payment” button on FWSA Connect after you have entered your information into PayPal.  Your registration is not complete until you receive the message that payment is complete.  We regret that we cannot accept payment for online registration except by credit card at this time.  To make payment using another payment method, download the registration form from the link on the registration page to register offline.
To add additional information to your registration, click the “Sponsor / Exhibitor Registration for FWSA Convention” menu item again.  You can add sponsorship information, additional attendees, and additional services.  You can also upload documents using the form at the bottom of the page, which will also show any documents already uploaded, and allow you to view or download them.
Any additional information added to the Sponsor / Exhibitor Registration for the same FWSA Convention using your FWSA Connect account will connect to the same company information.  If you need to enter Sponsor / Exhibitor Registration for a different company for the same Convention, please create a second FWSA Connect account, using a different email address, and follow the same instructions.
To view the already-submitted information about your current registration, including online payments received, attendees, additional services, and uploaded documents, click the “My Trips and Events” menu item on the “Trips & Events” submenu at the top of the page.  Click “Show” for the registration you want to view.  Multiple attendees and additional services will be shown on different lines.
