Those eligible to register are 2022 MDRT members, current MDRT Global Services members, MDRT Academy members, mentees and agency managers. Spouses, children, relatives, friends or business associates are not permitted to register or attend any official functions or events. To attend the Global Conference events, sessions and activities, all members must register.

Sharing or swapping your official Global Conference badge with another individual is strictly prohibited. Members found sharing or swapping their official Global Conference badge will have their badge confiscated, and they will be expelled from the Global Conference. The individual and the incident will also be reported to the MDRT Bylaws and Ethics Committee for further action, possibly resulting in revocation of membership.
Official MDRT Hotels
Staying at an official MDRT hotel will put you in the center of MDRT 2022 Global Conference activities, sessions, events and people. Maximize opportunities to meet and engage with fellow attendees over breakfast or at the end of an exhilarating day. Enjoy a leisurely stroll between your hotel and the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney and the many dining and shopping options located just outside your hotel’s front door. We suggest you make your housing reservations at the same time you register, and no later than July 25, 2022, to ensure you receive any special MDRT rates available.See the complete list of official MDRT hotels.
