To download the app to your mobile device, just search for "Rotary Events" in your app store, or visit guidebook.com/app/rotary. The app is free and there's no password required for general usage. You’ll need to set up a password for your profile. The app will provide you access to the most current program information and allow you to plan your schedule, download resources, rate sessions and connect with others.

Learn more here: http://www.riconvention.org/en/atlanta/breakout-sessions. HOW CAN I SEE WHICH EVENTS I REGISTERED FOR?

All Rotary-ticketed events will be printed on the back of each badge. HOW CAN I CANCEL TICKETED EVENTS REGISTERED FOR? The cancellation deadline for convention ticketed events was 30 April. If special circumstances apply, please contact us at ri.registration@rotary.org. CAN I STILL GET TICKETS FOR EVENTS? WHAT IF THEY ARE SOLD OUT? Before the convention, you can add special ticketed events to your registration. Check in at www.riconvention.org (click the yellow REGISTER button) to see current availability. In Atlanta, available tickets can be purchased at any new & unpaid registration counter located in the registration hall at the Georgia world congress center and are sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning on Wednesday, 7 June.
