To transfer a registration, please log into the shopping cart using the same login details used to purchase the original registration. Once logged in, click "Purchase History" from the drop down menu that appears when you hover your cursor over your name in the top right corner. If you do not see the "Purchase History" option, you are logged into the wrong cart, and you need to log into the original cart. The purchase history page shows all the registrations that were purchased in your shopping cart. Find the registration that you want to transfer and click the "Transfer Badge" link, then enter the new registrant's contact information.
You'll have the opportunity to either cancel or transfer the original registrant's housing accommodations, should they have one. You'll have three options when submitting your housing transfer:
Release: Cancels the hotel reservation for the original registrant.
Transfer: Transfers the hotel reservation to the new registrant.
Keep: Only select this option if the original registrant has more than one conference registration in their name.
Enter payment information for the non-refundable $125 transfer fee. Once the transfer has been processed, the new registrant will receive a registration confirmation email. The transfer fee will increase to $175 after February 14th.
You can transfer a badge at anytime prior to the badge being printed and picked up during SXSW. Once a badge it picked up it then becomes non-transferrable.
You can refer to our more detailed step by step attached transfer walkthrough for visual instructions.
