Thank you for your support of EDF and interest in attending the 2019 Engineering Development Forum. Due to an overwhelming response to this year’s conference we regret to say all registrations including guest tickets for The San Diego Experience are sold out.

Wow! What an amazing response we have had for EDF 2019. We regret to say that we have run out of seating space. While we are working on arrangements for additional seating opportunities, if you missed out on registration, we have an opportunity for a wait list. We expect early sign-ups to have a pretty good chance of getting the opportunity to register within the next month, but we can’t commit to selling the seats until we are sure we will have them.  Thank you for your patience.
Please email mayson@eng.ucsd.edu if you’d like to be added to the waitlist.

Additional rooms have been added to the room block at our official conference hotel, The Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines.  Reserve your room now by calling 1-877-414-8020, between 7:00 am – 7:00 pm Pacific Time.  The Group/Convention code is EDF619.  You still have the option of booking at the host hotel with their standard rate (a slightly higher rate) if the EDF room block is closed.

*The EDF room block offers a discounted rate for main conference dates of 6/17 and 6/18.  A discounted rate for any additional nights can be negotiated with the reservation agent at time of call.  Please note the cut-off date for individual call-in reservations is Friday, May 17, 2019.
