Are there a limited number of tickets available?

It is uncertain at this time what the capacity will be. We are working closely with our technology provider to determine the maximum capacity.

Are group viewing tickets available?

Tickets are one per person and a single ticket cannot be broadcast to a wider audience or used for multiple attendees. We do not have a group viewing option this year because the conference is highly interactive and individualized. Each attendee will have a unique experience based on their choices in which breakouts they attend, which exhibit booths they visit, how they browse the bookstore, if they participate in 1:1 coaching, networking, and Q&As in sessions. Each attendee will also create a profile for networking purposes. The Virtual Conference is an entire individual Virtual Conference experience with all sessions available to attendees.

Can I share the feed with my team?

A ticket enables one person to watch the Conference feed from a computer or handheld device. It is not shareable. Group viewing tickets are not available at this time.

Can I buy multiple tickets now, even if I don’t know who will use them all?

Absolutely! You can buy a package or a group of tickets now and submit all attendees’ contact information later. Each attendee will be emailed all necessary information for attending, the week before the conference.

What are the payment options?

Credit or debit card: This immediately reserves your ticket(s).

Check payment: Please note that checks are due in our office within 10 business days, or tickets will be released.
