How can we post openings to a private dinner as we have a couple of extra seats to meet Dr. Peter Schultz the co-inventor of fiber optics cable?

I have a question regarding my registration. There is a chance I might not be able to make the conference last minute and wondering if I can transfer my registration to another member of our team. Please let me know if that is possible.
