Guest Registration

We welcome all guests, business partners and family members at the GSEA Global Finals in Frankfurt. Due to costs associated with operating this event, anyone who is NOT a student competitor or a judge must register here to access the venue for any portion of the event.

We have made several pricing options available to accommodate needs. Registrations may be changed up until 15 April, but are final from that point on and will not be refunded. Please send any questions to gsea@eonetwork.org and we will respond within 48 business hours.

*** GSEA reserves the right to refuse competition entry to a student, if the student does not meet the GSEA qualifications for competition, if the student violated a GSEA policy at a past event, or if the student has been dishonest with GSEA program staff or member leaders about any element of their business, event availability or other details that would negatively impact the event. Any decisions on removing a competitor will be made by the GSEA Subcommittee Chair, in consultation with the GSEA Staff Director and member leaders from the region. ***
