HOW MANY PEOPLE ATTEND THE CONFERENCES?

We are making C+C even bigger and better. We are expecting around 850 attendees, but you will be a part of a "track" of smaller crew of around 400.

You will be sent an email closer to the date with an option to select! Please note that there is a time period where selection is open + you must select during that time period. 

WAIT, THERE'S A MENTOR OR PANELIST MISSING FROM THE ORIGINAL LINEUP - WHAT HAPPENED?

Emergencies happen, and sometimes panelists or speakers have to cancel due to unexpected circumstances which are beyond our control. Please note that we are unable to offer refunds due to speaker cancellation.

WAIT, THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT ARE MISSING IN MY GIFT BAG THAT OTHER ATTENDEES GOT - WHERE'S MY STUFF?

While we do our best to ensure every guest gets every single item, we cannot guarantee all items will be in each bag, but we will ensure the bag you receive is worth the same amount as every one else.
