ICE 2018 Registration Information

Online at ICEevent.org

Online registration provides immediate knowledge of availability of events (short courses, field trips, luncheons etc.) as well as if you are already registered for an event. If an event is not available, it will not appear on the screen or it will indicate “sold out.”

Register Now

By Mail

Mailing your registration will delay this process and events may sell out while your registration is in transit. Submit only one copy of your registration form. Be cautious when submitting your registration or making changes to your current registration. Duplicate charges may occur if you send more than one copy of a registration form.

VAT Information

All registration and event fees are subject to a 15% Value Added Tax (VAT) levied by the Government of South Africa. If you are a citizen of or work for a company registered in South Africa, you must provide your SARS identification number at the time of payment for registration and event fees to receive a valid VAT invoice. If you are not a citizen or your company is not registered in South Africa, there are very limited opportunities for VAT recovery. AAPG does not provide tax advice; if you need more detailed information on VAT, please consult a qualified VAT professional.
