The TMS 2013 Annual Meeting & Exhibition is a unique venue where materials scientists and engineers representing a broad spectrum of disciplines
and nearly 70 countries can meet face-to-face to exchange research and connect with individuals they may not meet otherwise. It provides valuable
professional development opportunities for materials scientists and engineers at all stages of their careers. But we understand that your organization
likely has a limited budget for travel and conference attendance. If that’s the case, please use the items in this toolkit to show your supervisors
the value of attending TMS2013.

Cost-Saving Tips and Opportunities
Consider these tips to help reduce the cost of your trip and to make the most of the funds your company spends on travel:
- Register Early: Submit your registration form and payment by February 1 to receive the advance registration rate (a savings of up to $100).
- Book Hotel Rooms Early: TMS has reserved blocks of rooms at discounted rates at six hotels convenient to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Book early to ensure placement in one of these room blocks.
- Make the Most of Your Travel: While in San Antonio, plan to attend one of six TMS Short Courses held in conjunction with the meeting to receive more bang for your travel buck.
- Share What You Learn: Offer to prepare and deliver a short presentation for your non-attending colleagues after the conference to share what you learned. That way others in your organization will get the benefits of your attendance, too.
