If you had registered for the 2020 conference, you probably remember that we automatically moved your registration to 2021, due to the pandemic postponing the conference. Since we are still dealing with the pandemic, we will automatically move your registration once again to the in-person 2022 conference. In addition, you will also receive registration to the 2021 Bark-A-Lounger virtual conference, FREE OF CHARGE. You do not need to do anything! We will send access information as the conference gets closer.
The Bark-A-Lounger virtual conference will allow access to all the keynote speakers beyond the conference dates, depending upon your level of registration (30 days or through the end of 2021). If this doesn't resolve your conflict, you are welcome to sell your registration to someone else. Though we can't offer refunds, we are happy to transfer registrations from one person to another. Please note the $50 transfer fee to cover the costs of this service.
Of course! Simply email Lisa (email@example.com) and she'll get your registration information resent.
If you moved or need to update a t-shirt size or meal selection, for example, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and Lisa will get your information up to date. We definitely want to be sure we have current contact information for you as we will be sending out 2021 access info (and VIPs will get a special box in the mail!).
Nope! No downloads necessary. It is important to us to make it easy for you to take part. We are working with a very cool company to get the conference online for you, and everything will stream directly though their service.
There are a maximum of 75 VIP tickets available, so if you're interested in the 2022 in-person conference, I would recommend you register now so you don't miss out. The VIP tickets are the best value you will find for both 2021+2022 conferences. However, you will have the option to register for just 2022 later if you choose to wait (and if there are still tickets available). We DO expect to sell out of the VIP tickets!
It will take about 45 days to process all the videos. A link will be mailed out to all 2021 attendees when they are ready. Bark-A-Lounger attendees will have 30 days to re-watch any programming while VIPs will have through the end of 2021.
Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, unauthorized recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical or virtual contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.
