Adding a Pre-Conference Tour, Pre-conference Workshop or Mobile Tour: Please note, the pre-conference tours and mobile workshops sellout quickly and are booked on a first come, first served basis. Therefore, it is advisable to add these items at the time of your conference registration. If you are registering for someone else or a group, please find out their selection prior to registering them. Although each person within the group can purchase a tour or workshop after they have been registered, they run the risk of the tour or workshop no longer being available.

If you have already registered for the conference and would like to add a workshop or tour, you can add it directly from your individual profile. Please note, authorized users cannot log back in to add a tour to someone else’s event registration. You must be logged in as the individual wishing to purchase the tour. After logging in, click on the “Purchases” tab. On the left-hand side will be an option for “Events.” From there, you should have listed the Annual Conference & Marketplace; click on the “Details” button next to that listing. Once you are on your registration profile, there is an “Add Session” button on the right-hand side. This will allow you to add other options to your cart and check out the same way you registered.

Pre-Conference Tour, Preconference Workshop or Mobile Tour Cancellation: Tours may be canceled without penalty prior to August 31, 2022. After August 31, 2022, no refunds will be given on pre-conference tours, pre-conference workshops or mobile workshops. If you are planning to cancel your tour or workshop, please email registration@downtown.org.
