Frequently Asked Questions


Registration opens in early March of each year. Past attendees will be notified by email when the registration process begins. Registration to the most recent conference automatically enrolls attendees as members of SWFC. Thus, if you attended last year's conference, you are a member until this conference. Membership and conference registration are basically the same thing, since the sole member involvement function is the Annual Conference and Grade Hearing. Your membership allows the conference to continue for your benefit specifically, and to support projects beneficial to the fertilizer industry as a whole.

Spouse Registration

The spouse registration fee has been waived for this conference, spouse may attend at no additional charge. However, pre-registration will assist us with planning - please note a spouses attendance on the member registration form. Spouses must purchase a ticket to attend the Speaker Breakfast, though.

Table Top Displays

Due to space limitations, table top displays in the public areas of the hotel are limited to press and non-profit associations. Company displays are not allowed. Please contact the association office if you are unsure if you qualify to put up a display.


Because of volunteer participation and operational efficiencies, the conference is able to operate effectively solely from the registration fees. Thus, it is important that all company personnel in attendance be registered for the conference. We also ask that you ensure registration for all individuals with whom you meet during the conference. That process allows the SWFC leadership to continue its focus on providing a cost-effective networking opportunity for the entire fertilizer industry without distraction.

Travel Tips

Conference Attire - San Antonio is located in a warm climate and July is one of the hottest months of the year. Therefore, business casual attire (that is, no coats or ties) is recommended for the entire conference.

The San Antonio International Airport (SAT) services the area. Most major airlines service the facility.
