Can I use one name and e-mail address to pre-register more than one person?
The CEATEC JAPAN pre-registration system is intended for registration of all visitors. Therefore, we ask that each visitor register individually.
I pre-registered for CEATEC JAPAN last year. Do I have to register again this year?
Can I use my username and password from last year? You may register using the same username and password as you did for last year's CEATEC JAPAN.
I pre-registered but my admission ID has not arrived.
For those who have registered by September 21, admission IDs that are readily admissible are sent out immediately. However, if your admission ID has not arrived, it can be easily issued at the venue. Please print out the reservation page that is downloadable by logging into the CEATEC JAPAN 2007 Pre-registration site and bring it with you to the venue.
I would like to change my pre-registration e-mail address.
Your e-mail address is your user ID, therefore it cannot be changed. Although it is a bit inconvenient, you will need to re-register with your new address. After doing this, you can delete your previous registration by logging in under your old address and following the "Cancel" procedures.

Your user ID is the e-mail address that you registered. Please refer to the form in the Pre-registration site for your password.
