Regarding Attendance of our 5th Gathering
As we only have 30 days until our 5th gathering we wanted to readdress the attendance concern for our event.
We offer tickets as a way to assess interest as well as gauge event attendance. As we’ve seen a huge increase in demand to attend our event this year, we decided to increase our ticket count to be as close as possible to the room’s capacity. Since then we still get asked if those without tickets can still attend, and the short answer is yes, but to a certain extent. If attendance reaches the room’s capacity, priority will be given to those who have tickets. We will distinguish this by having one color of wristbands for ticket holders, and a different color of wristband for non-ticket holders. In the event that capacity is reached, non-ticket holders will be asked to leave the main room and to hangout in the upstairs lobby just outside of the room until we are able to control the flow of attendees.
Please understand that this is the first time that we’ve had such high demand to attend our event, as we are usually a smaller gathering. The last thing we want is for people to wait outside, but safety is one of our top priorities at our gatherings, in addition to being respectful to the hotel, their staff, and other guests. We will be sure to reiterate this on the day of the event as well.
If you have any questions please message us on Facebook or reply in the comments.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you all there!
