The PCI-SIG Compliance Workshop #117 will be held July 26 – July 30, 2021 at the Embassy Suites Burlingame in Burlingame, California. This event will include in person product testing as well as the option for products to be shipped in and tested virtually. Please note that virtual attendance will be very limited and that virtual registrations will be automatically placed on a waitlist before being selected using the following criteria. They will be notified by the week of July 5th at the latest. 

  • 1st Priority – Registrants that are international
  • 2nd Priority – Registrants that are located outside of California state

*Please note that System Registrations are currently being waitlisted. We hope to be able to accept additional registrations off of the waitlist. Registrations will be removed from the waitlist in the order that they are received. Please register at this time to ensure your spot on the waitlist.

Please note that only 2 attendees will be allowed per product and NO onsite registrations will be allowed during the event. For in-person attendees the standards will be consistent with our Compliance Workshops held in Beaverton. There will be daily check-ins, mask guidance, and social distancing guidance. We understand this is a fluid situation and will update accordingly with San Mateo County guidelines.

REGISTER EARLY: In case registration exceeds our testing capacities, we have established a reasonable cap for each product type and revision. If these caps are reached during online registration, we will put any additional products on a waiting list. Products will be moved from the waiting list to full registration if possible, based on the order of their attempted pre-registration and will be notified the week after the registration deadline of Thursday, July 1, 2021.

COST: Attendance at this Members Only event is free. Please note that your credit card information will be collected for product registration(s); however, you will not be charged unless you do not bring your product to the event or your product registration is not canceled by 5pm (PT) on Thursday, July 1, 2021.  This event is non-hosted. Participants pay for their own travel, food, and hotel expenses. Lunch is provided for attendees Monday through Friday. 

REGISTRATION DEADLINE & TESTING SCHEDULES: We do not accept onsite product registrations so you MUST register your product prior to the registration cut-off date of 5pm (PT) on Thursday, July 1, 2021. Your testing schedule will be created based off of the information you provide for your registered product, so please be sure that any changes to your product’s information are completed prior to 5pm (PT) on Thursday, July 1, 2021. No product detail changes may be made after registration has closed as we will be distributing anonymized testing schedules in advance of the event.
