If my spouse cannot attend, can a friend go in his place?

Free spouse admission is included with adult registration to encourage married couples to attend together. However, this free admission can only be used by the husband or wife of the registrant. The spouse free admission cannot be used by a friend if the spouse is unable to attend. Invite your friend to request their own FTA coupon code if it’s their first time attending. We’d love to have them attend also!

Can I request a coupon code for my friend?

While we would love for you to be able to help a friend out, in this case, no. We need to hear from each adult or married couple that wants to attend the AFHE Convention for the first-time. Having each person/couple’s name and email address allows us to verify that each person who contacts us for this discount has never before registered for the convention as well as being able to communicate and give instructions to each first-time attendee individual or married couple.

Please direct your friend to this page to request their own coupon code if it is their first time attending.
