Once you submit your registration, we will email you an invoice. Please note that payment must be received prior to discount deadlines for the discount to remain in effect.

Can I sign up for a pre-conference activity later if I decide to take one?
Absolutely, you can register for a pre-conference workshop, co-located event, and/or certificate program after your initial conference registration!
Pre-conference activities often sell out, so you’ll want to register as early as you can.
Call our offices at +1.707.566.8990 or email us at service@LearningGuild.com to add these activities to your conference registration.
Can I walk in and sign up for the conference?
If space is available, walk-ins will be accepted.
