What does registration include?
It depends on which event you want to attend, each event is purchased separately. If you are taking a workshop, you get a discount on the conference presentations. The workshops and presentations are separate events.
You are not required to attend the 2 day conference portion to take a workshop and vice versa.
Can I register at the door?
Registration is not taken at the door, this is because all names must be accounted for before the event starts so that lanyards, padfolios, and check in lists are ready on the first day. The Summit is mostly managed by one person and it is easier for organization if registration is made in advance.
Online registration will close at 11:59am PST on Feb. 5, 2018
Can you offer student discounts?
