Frequently Asked Questions

We'll answer a few common questions to help you get started.

How can I become a VIP Team?

Contact customer support to start the registration process. Our team needs to be notified of your desire to join the program so we can welcome you and apply the exclusive perks.


How can I qualify as a VIP Team?

Groups of 8+ members qualify for our VIP Program as well as the 20% off pass purchases! Not everyone on your team has to choose the same pass level to count as a large group. However, you will need to have customer service do the registrations for you in order to get the 20% group discount applied across different pass levels.


I’m ready to register! What information do you need?

Email our customer support team the following information per team member: name, email, job title, company, phone, address, package choice, and, if applicable, class choice, tutorial choices, and additional add-ons.


I already registered a team of 8 without contacting customer service. Can I still qualify?

Yes! Please contact our customer support team and we will confirm your status and contact you with the next steps.

I already registered a small group, but now more people want to come so we can qualify for VIP status. How do I complete these registrations?

Contact customer support to get the conversation started. We are happy to add additional registrations later on to a group. While we can’t retroactively offer larger discounts on passes that were already purchased, we can offer a discount on new purchases.


I am having trouble convincing my boss to send more team members. What should I do?

Tell your boss to join us! Our FREE Leadership Summit passes are the perfect opportunity for management to get involved. And one of our most commonly echoed thoughts from past groups is that they wish they had brought their leaders along.


Our company will be a sponsor at the conference. If we have 8 team members, can we also qualify for the VIP Program?

Yes! We have had sponsor VIP groups before and we would love to see your whole team attend. Booth staff will not count towards the 8 members needed, but all other pass levels will, even if you use your sponsor discounts to assist with some of the pass purchases.


My team does not have 8 members or we can only join virtually. Can we still join the program?

Sadly, no. Only in-person groups of 8 or more qualify. But the good news is you can still take advantage of our group discounts of 10% off for 3+ people and 20% off for 6+ people on both in-person and virtual passes. We hope to see you as a VIP next time!
