Q: What should I bring to class? Will I need my Cameo with me?
A: Most of our classes are demonstration style presentations, so you will not need to bring your Cameo or cutting supplies with you. However, most of our software presentations will be in the fabulous amphitheater, so you may bring your laptop for a hands on software opportunity. Each space has a plug in and desk area, so you can follow along with the instructor!
Other than that – -just come prepared to take notes, learn & shop!! We suggest you bring your business cards, (if you have them) to share – and a camera! (Just always ask the vendors/instructors for permission to take pictures — and no video of classes is permitted).
Q: Is there a discounted room block for this event?
A: Yes! We have a block of rooms discounted available – just click here! The standard room rate is $124/night, with the upgraded rooms at $134/night. You are responsible for booking these rooms yourself. The room block is sold out at this point – we recommend nearby hotels of Crowne Plaza, Hilton Garden Inn or Hampton Inn. All are within 2 miles of the Wyndham.
Q: My spouse wants to tag along — Can he attend with me? What about my daughter/son?
A: Sure – We would love to have your spouse come with you — However, if he/she will be attending classes OR entering the Exhibit/shopping Hall — they must purchase a shopping pass. It is $25 and can be purchased at the registration desk. If your spouse would like to come with you, and not attend the Conference, there are plenty of things to do in the greater Atlanta area. I’m sorry, but NO CHILDREN under the age of 16 will be allowed to attend the Conference or be in the classrooms. This includes nursing infants in strollers & “crafty kids” that might want to participate. This policy will be enforced.
Q: I’m a real newbie with my Silhouette. Will this Conference be “over my head”?
A: NO! We will be offering a wide variety of classes — appropriate for all levels. We are offering a new Beginner Track this Conference! As the event gets closer, you will have the opportunity to view class descriptions & plan your schedule accordingly. This is a great time for all levels of Silhouette users to be exposed to new products, new techniques & inspiration!
Q: What time does the Conference begin & end each day, so I can plan my travel?
The vendor hall will open each morning @8am (which is where the breakfast will be served). Classes will begin@9am – and run until 5:00 on Saturday. Then @ 7 on Saturday, there is an optional evening session. We will finish our final class about 3:30 on Sunday, with the final door prize drawing ending at 4pm in the vendor hall. For those that arrive on Friday evening, there will be an “Early Bird” shopping event from 7-9pm.
Q: Do you offer shopping only or single day passes?
A: For the Vendor Hall, a daily pass for $25 can be purchased at the registration desk.
Q: If I am unable to attend the Conference, is my registration transferrable? What is the Cancellation Policy?
A: Refunds are available until the Cancellation date. Please link here to read all dates, along with Terms & Conditions. If something happens and you cannot attend after the cancellation date, (and we hope it doesn’t), you can transfer and/or sell your ticket to another individual. The cut off for this is 10 Calendar days prior to the Conference. We have even set up a Facebook page, where you can post if you need to sell your ticket. Since we anticipate selling out early, there will be plenty of demand for these, as the event gets closer.
