Patron: Every year, particularly generous attendees ask how they can pay extra for their ticket to help us expand our mission. This year, we’re introducing a ticket type just for you: the Patron ticket. The cost difference will be put toward conference expenses that increase access to the conference, such as the financial aid fund and video captioning. Ticket holders of this type receive all the benefits of a corporate ticket, and will also be invited to a special “thank you” event at the conference.
Corporate Concierge Service: If your company wants to purchase several tickets in advance, but decide who will be attending the conference at a later date, please use our Corporate Concierge Service. Buy your tickets in bulk and we’ll send you a registration code your employees can use to register when you’re ready. We will also send you a paper invoice for record-keeping if you need.
