Confused? We Can Help!

Q. I am an “industry colleague.” Why is my registration $2,500?
A. We have a new policy which requires consultants, attorneys, vendors and manufacturers to sponsor at least at the Silver level. This allows those participants to take advantage of the intimate venue, quality program, and networking opportunities that, together, make for a superb marketing environment. Registration at the Industry Colleague level therefore includes Silver Sponsorship. For more information, view the sponsorship details here. To sign up, contact the NIPPC office at (206) 624-1546.

Q. I am a speaker. Do I still need to register?
A. Yes! All presenters must register for the conference. This is so you can register for a room and any additional activities.

Q. Can I bring a spouse or friend?
A. Yes. There are many activities and an informal boat cruise with appetizers and drinks Sunday evening for everyone to enjoy. You can sign up to bring a guest with you to the reception and banquet festivities on Monday evening as well.

Q. How do I book an activity?
A. All activities should be booked through and paid for on the RegOnline registration site. Note your password when you register, then you can go back into your record and add activities or a dinner guest at any time.

Q. How do I reserve a room at Alderbrook?
A. New this year, you need to book a room through the our registration process. Do not call Alderbrook directly for a room unless you are staying longer than the nights of September 11-12. Please see Accommodations for detailed instructions and room rates.

Q. Where can I stay if Alderbrook is full?
A. There are two nearby alternatives to Alderbrook: Robin Hood Village and the Little Creek Casino. Contact information for both is listed on our Accommodations page.

Q. What is the dress code?
A. The dress code is business casual, except for the Banquet, which is slightly dressier. Women, please be aware that there are cobblestone paths and grassy areas when choosing shoes.
