There is no limit (unless you are an educator or student, in which case you are limited to one).

What is the process for distributing Advance Passes?

Can I register multiple people myself?

No, they must register themselves. Each attendee must sign in with their Autodesk ID or create an Autodesk ID account and enter a unique code to register.

Can I track who has used the passes I have distributed?

Yes. Once registration opens, sign in to the registration site. A list of the people who have used their codes to register will appear at the bottom of the My Account page. This list is updated each time a registration code is used.
