How to: Reserve a Seat

Reserve a Seat returns this year to RSA Conference! You'll continue to have the ability to enroll in your chosen sessions prior to the Conference. We strongly recommend reserving a seat as early as possible—it’s the best way to help ensure your best Conference experience. 

In addition, we’ve continued the more robust functionality on the Sessions & Events page, including:

  • Powerful browse and search features 
  • Ability to tag and view favorite sessions
  • View your schedule/favorites in a day planner format

Everything has been designed to help you find relevant sessions faster…easily organize your itinerary...and make sure you get to attend the sessions you want.

Reserve a Seat

Reserving a seat prior to Conference helps ensure that you will be able to attend your preferred sessions. Reserving your seat in a session is easy. Most sessions listed on the Sessions & Events page have a Reserve a Seat button displayed under the session title. 

Step by Step Guide:


RAS-How-step1note  Please note: Red “Session Full” text will indicate if a session has reached capacity. If you would still like to attend that session, you can arrive prior to that session as a standby. If someone who enrolled in that session does not show up, standbys will be allowed to attend on a first-come, first-served basis.

Viewing Sessions

By default, the Sessions & Events page displays every session at RSA Conference 2018 Asia Pacific & Japan. To help you refine the list of sessions, we’ve included a robust filtering feature at the top of the page. 

How-sessionsSearch for sessions by keyword, core topic, format (Learning Lab, etc.) or specialty track. In addition, you can choose to see sessions on particular days or that match your pass type (Full Conference, Visitor, etc.). 

We created a page that defines all the filters you can choose.




How-favorites2Remove Sessions from Favorites: To remove a session from your favorites list, click on the solid black star. Multiple sessions within the same time slot can be added to your favorites. However, as noted above, you can only reserve a seat for one session in a given time slot.

To view your favorites: click the “View My Favorites” button at the top of the Sessions & Events page.

note  Please note: adding a session to your favorites list DOES NOT enroll you in that session. You must use the Reserve a Seat function in order to reserve your place at a session.
