1: What does full conference access include?
A: Access to all three paid events, and also includes all free events. This also gives you priority seating starting at 6.pm. at the Sunday Evening Fireside. The Friday Daytime Activities are optional and some cost extra, and that extra cost is not included in the Full Conference Access price.
2: How do I register?
3: Why should I register early instead of just showing up at the door?
A: Prices will increase as we get closer to the event date. Please refer to the "pricing" page of this website for price details. We also encourage everyone to register early so we know how many people to expect for meals.
4: Why is there a service fee?
A: The RegOnline service fee is a processing fee charge by the company RegOnline, which runs the registration platform. That fee goes to them and not to the Singles Conference Committee (as all the planning committee members are unpaid volunteers). Registration fees are typical and expected among event management/ticketing platforms. We are using this RegOnline platform to better manage attendees and the event on the day of the conference, which is also the main reason why we are not performing cash or check transactions. Unfortunately, we are not able to waive the service fee.
5: Is paying with a credit/debit card my only option? I prefer cash or check.
A: We are only able to accept payments made with a credit/debit card. The main reason is that we are using the RegOnline platform to better manage attendees and the event on the day of the conference. If you are unable to pay with a credit card, we encourage you to find a friend who can help you pay with a credit card and you can pay them the equivalent amount with cash or check.
6: What’s the refund policy for this conference, and can I transfer my ticket to someone else?
A: Refunds and online transfers will be granted until July 13, 2018; after this date no refunds or online transfers will be given. The refund will be for the amount paid at registration less registration fees.
The option we have for you to transfer a ticket after the July 13 deadline is to have your substitute (the person taking your place) bring a printout of your registration confirmation email with him/her to the check-in desk at any time during the conference weekend. This will let the check-in desk team know that you have approved the transfer to this attendee (since no one would have your confirmation email unless you forwarded it to them). If you cannot locate this email confirmation, we can re-send it to you. Email your email confirmation re-send request to Reg.SinglesConf2018@gmail.com
But keep in mind the following: your substitute will not have the ability to pick their own classes. Since many classes have limited space and have already been filled, your substitute will have to attend the same classes you registered for. Lastly, you are responsible for arranging the payment from your substitute to you (e.g., cash, Venmo, etc.). We will not coordinate that payment exchange.
7: What if I want to upgrade my ticket that I already paid for (e.g., go from a Friday ONLY ticket to Full Conference Access)?
A: You DO NOT need to purchase an additional registration using a different email address to do this. Please email us directly at email@example.com if you would like to do that and we can get that taken care of in our system. You will just pay the difference in price.
You can also do this with us on any check-in day (see our FAQ below for check-in times).
Note that you cannot downgrade your registration (e.g. change from "Full Conference Access" to "Saturday Daytime Only")
8: Can I change the classes I chose for Saturday Daytime after registering?
A: You will be able to change your classes until July 20. To do this, simply click on the "Review, change, or update your registration" link in your registration confirmation email. You will be asked to create a password to log in. Please follow the instructions and make the changes you desire. Note that if a class you're interested in does not appear on the drop down list, this is because the class is full. We invite you to revisit your registration profile to see if more seats are available for your desired class. (Of course, you can only change your class until July 20).
9: For Saturday Daytime classes, I'll just register for random classes and then go to whichever ones I decide to attend the day of. That's cool, right?
A: NO! Not cool. We will have volunteers at the entrance to classes checking your badge to make sure you only enter the classes you registered for. One of the biggest complaints attendees have expressed in previous years is registering for a specific class (and looking forward to it) only to find that no seating or space was available for them when they arrived to the class. Space is limited at the Institute of Religion building. As a result, we don't have the seating flexibility that a convention center would have.
10: Who is hosting this conference?
A: The Salt Lake Single Adult Conference is hosted by the Bountiful, Emigration, Draper, Fort Herriman, Granger, Holladay, Oquirrh, Parleys, Union Fort, and Winder Single Adult Wards of Utah.
11: What’s the age range for this conference?
A: This conference is for singles who will be or were the ages of 31 to 45 during the year 2018.
12: How many people are expected to attend?
A: We are expecting about 1500 singles from Utah and across the U.S.
13: How will I be able to meet people at such a large conference if I do best in small groups?
A: There are several smaller group activities planned throughout the conference to help you meet and interact with people in a more comfortable setting if large groups aren’t your thing.
14: Will there be hotel accommodations for the event?
A: Unfortunately, no. Our group discount with The Marriott Hotel at the University of Utah on 480 Wakara Way, Salt Lake City, UT 84108 fell through. However, you can still book a room with them since that hotel is the close to all our main activities for the conference.
15: What’s the dress code for this conference?
A: For Saturday evening at The Leonardo the dress code is semi-formal/formal (or come in your Sunday best). Sunday dress for the devotional on Sunday evening. Casual attire for everything else.
