MATCP will be utilizing a new electronic check-in and name badge printing system this year.


You will walk up to a registration kiosk and enter your last name, select check in, and your name badge will print. You will grab a lanyard, and a staff member will hand you your attendee bag and gift.


If your badge prints incorrectly for any reason, you can step over to the registration desk where we can fix any issues and re-print.


Thank you for your patience as we introduce this new system and process!
