Do the pre- & post-happy hours cost money?
The happy hours are not included in the conference fees. If you want food or drink, it will be available and you will be responsible for taking care of payment.


Are the happy hours mandatory?
The happy hours are not mandatory, but we’d be happy if you were there! Frankly, some of the best conversations and learning happen in the hallways and at the bar or restaurant. You will get a lot more benefit from the event if you attend the happy hours.

Can I go to the happy hours, but not the event?
Yes, you are welcome to attend. However, the bars are more of a place to get to know people of like minds and interest rather than hitting up the facilitators to redo their sessions. Feel free to come and make new friends!

Where are the happy hours?
The post-event happy hour location will be determined at the event by those who want to attend (using a visual thinking technique, of course).  The details for the pre-event happy hour will be announced shortly.

Can I receive CEUs for this?
Yes, educators can receive CEUs for this event. Check back here before the event to find out how.

What is the dress code?
This event is casual. Some people will likely come in polos and khakis, others in jeans & t-shirt. It’s up to you, though we suggest you dress comfortably. Visual thinking events tend to have a lot of movement. Also, if you get cold easily, conference spaces tend to be colder, so bringing a sweater that you can take on and off may be helpful.
