Who can attend the SAH Annual International Conference?
The SAH Annual International Conference is open to all who share an interest in the history of architecture, landscapes, art, urbanism, sustainability, and design. SAH membership must be current through April 16, 2023, to participate in the conference. If you have not yet joined or need to renew your membership, you can register for the conference as a new or renewing member.
When will early registration open?
Early registration will open at 3 pm CST on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. Registration rates will increase on Thursday, February 23, 2023.
Why should I register early?
Registration fees increase on Thursday, February 23, 2023. Registering early will save you money and helps SAH determine how many members will be attending the conference. This helps us plan to have enough food for the receptions, buses for the events and tours, and chairs for the sessions. Tours sell out quickly, so we recommend registering as soon as possible to secure tickets for specific tours.
What does the full conference registration fee include?
The conference registration fee includes the following:
- Printed program book
- Attendee badge
- Access to all paper sessions
- Conference attendee roster
- Opening Night Social Hour
- Business Meeting
- Introductory Address
- Exhibit area access
- Awards Celebration
- Eduard F. Sekler Talk
- Graduate Student Reception (graduate students only)
Registered attendees will have the opportunity to register for a variety of receptions and tours. Please note that reservations are required for some events, even those included in the registration fee. This allows us to estimate the number of attendees so that we can provide enough seating and food and beverages.
Please see the Registration page for conference events that require registration or ticket purchase.
Do you offer a Day Rate registration?

Non-members are welcome and can pay the selected membership rate during registration. A single-day pass includes a one-day conference badge and access to the paper sessions and midday programs for that day. Receptions and tours offered on the selected single day are available for additional purchase at the posted rates.
What does the Day Rate include?
Day Rates include access to all paper sessions for the Day Rate purchased (either Thursday OR Friday). Day Rate registration will be sold onsite only.
When can I register for tours?
You may purchase tour tickets beginning at 3 pm CST on January 10, 2023. SAH members are urged to register as early as possible to reserve a spot on their preferred tour(s). Tour tickets will be sold through Eventbrite.
Can I register more than one person at a time?
Due to the limitations of our system, you can only register one person at a time for the conference. Our system requires a separate registration for each individual. Tickets for tours and public events will be sold through Eventbrite, and you may purchase multiple tickets at a time.
I am not a member of SAH, but my co-worker is a member and cannot attend. Can I use their membership to register at the member rate?
Individual membership in SAH is not transferable. Non-members can register for the conference by choosing the rate that includes a one-year membership. Institutional (library) subscribers may designate up to two employees of their department to register for the conference. The institution’s subscription must be current through April 16, 2023, and the department members must be approved in advance by the main contact of that institution’s membership.
Will I receive a confirmation of my registration?
After registering online, you will receive an email confirmation at the address you registered with. If it does not appear within one hour of registration, please make sure it did not get routed to your junk mail or spam folder. You can review your registration online in the portal by following these instructions.
