The Charleston Symposium weekend is an inclusive $650 for all the lectures, events, and receptions listed on the schedule, including the Opening Night Reception with Keynote Address, and visits to two privately-held period homes. Registration sells out quickly and will be $700 after December 31, 2023.

Registration is strictly limited to 80 patrons on a first-come, first-served basis. The 2024 Symposium takes place during Charleston’s popular spring season with much going on, thus offering the additional opportunity to explore our beautiful historic city.


No tickets will be sent in the mail. You will receive a name badge at Registration which will admit you to all lectures and receptions. You will receive a confirmation email of your ticket purchase.

Schedule changes may occur due to unforeseen circumstances. Symposium patrons who cancel by February 9, 2024, regardless of the reason, will be issued a full refund less a $50 handling fee. There will be no refunds after February 9, 2024.

Preservation Society of Charleston Membership:
Each Registration purchase will receive membership in the Preservation Society of Charleston for one year.

Tax Deduction:
$350 of your ticket purchase may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the Preservation Society of Charleston. Please consult with your tax advisor.

While lodging is the responsibility of the registrant, a special rate at The Palmetto Hotel is available to Symposium patrons at 843-823-3604 or palmettohotelcharleston.com. Please mention the Charleston Symposium at the time of reservation. As this is one of the city’s best-known boutique hotels, there are a limited number of rooms. The Palmetto Hotel is within easy walking distance of the Old Federal Court Room. The Symposium will provide a list of other local accommodations upon request.
