First, make sure you have a current IRE membership through July 1, 2022. You can do that by logging into your account on the website and going to Manage Memberships in your Member Dashboard.
Next, go to the conference ticket page. The correct price for your membership level will show up in the ‘Get Tickets’ block. Click ‘Add to cart’ and follow the steps to check out.
If the ticket block is blank, please check that you are logged into your account with a current membership. If you still need help, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
IRE23 will be June 22-25, 2023 (a Thursday-Sunday) in Orlando, Florida. The conference will begin at 9 a.m. on Thursday and end at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday.
Yes! Applications are due on April 3, 2023.
The conference is taking place at the Renaissance Orlando SeaWorld. IRE has secured a discounted block of rooms. The room rate is $199 (single/double) per night plus tax**, the nightly rate is inclusive of the xx per night resort fee. This block is available until Monday, May 29, 2023 or until the block is full (whichever occurs first). If you need to cancel your reservation, you must do so 72 hours prior to your arrival to avoid any cancellation fees. A link to make reservations in the discounted block will be posted in mid-January 2023.

If you are interested in having an event or meeting during IRE23, please reach out to Stephanie Klimstra, Director of Events at firstname.lastname@example.org. She can discuss options available based on availability during the time and date you are looking for along with any associated costs. IRE does ask that events do not overlap with educational programming.
Please keep in mind that no outside food or drink can be brought into meeting space per hotel contracts.
IRE takes the health and safety of all attendees at its events seriously and follows the guidelines of CDC, state/local health authorities and the conference venue.
All NICAR attendees must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
If an attendee, speaker or IRE staff do not meet these requirements, they will not be allowed to attend the event.
At this time, neither Florida nor Orlando nor the Renaissance Marriott, our conference hotel, require masks, but IRE recommends that attendees wear masks to protect themselves and others.
Masks are required if you have received a medical or religious exemption as noted above.
CDC notes people properly wearing a well-fitting mask protect themselves and those around them, and that wearing a well-fitting mask is most beneficial in crowded and poorly ventilated locations. IRE is encouraging attendees to use masks indoors.
We ask anyone feeling ill or showing any symptoms of COVID-19 to not attend. If you are unable to participate for a COVID-19-related reason, please let us know immediately and we will work with you on your registration.
If you become ill during the conference, we ask that you isolate yourself. If you want to do a COVID test, IRE staff will work with you to find one.
IRE will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and any state/local ordinances. We will update attendees if there are any changes in protocols.
IRE23 will not include virtual sessions. Our goal is to provide the best possible experience and we have found, based on attendee feedback, that a hybrid event does not meet the highest level of standards that IRE members have come to expect. We instead have significantly bolstered our affordable and accessible virtual training opportunities scheduled throughout the year, including the all-virtual AccessFest conference taking place October 12-14, 2023. We’d love to hear from you about what else you’d like to see. Fill this form out any time you have an idea for an event.
AccessFest is an expansion of the DBEI Symposiums that were held in October of 2021 and 2022. We'll offer programming focused on diversity, belonging, equity and inclusion, and provide training options that you would see at a typical IRE or NICAR Conference. AccessFest will be held October 12-14, 2023 - additional details coming soon!
