International Delegates

As product stewardship has a global impact, Stewardship 2016 welcomes professionals from around the world.

Preparing for Stewardship 2016

Register for the Stewardship 2016 conference and reserve your hotel through the hotel block to maximize your savings and receive preferred accommodations. Although English is the official language of Stewardship 2016, online registration and hotel reservations are available in several languages to assist in navigating.

Please note: The Product Stewardship Society and the Stewardship conference is not able to provide financial support to attendees. Airfare, ground transportation, hotel, meals, travel insurance, and other local expenses are the responsibility of the individual meeting participant.


The Product Stewardship Society can provide documents to assist in obtaining permission to attend the conference. However, the Society cannot intervene with any government agency on behalf of a participant.

  • Official Letter of Invitation: Once you have registered for Stewardship 2016, you will be given the option to view and print a Letter of Invitation. You may submit this letter with your Visa application to verify the name, dates, location, and purpose of Stewardship 2016. Letters of Invitation will not be made available to anyone that has not registered for the conference. There are no exceptions to this policy. See below for registration refunds due to Visa denials.
  • Visa: Review information on applying for a Visitor Business (B-1) visa to the United States.

Visa Delays or Denials

Visa processing may require a long lead time. We highly recommend you apply for a visa three to four months in advance of the conference. If your visa is denied and you would like to be considered for a registration refund, make sure you have an official denial document or a stamped copy of your application form with the date of application and date of denial. Email copies of these documents with your refund request.
