Whatever you want, it’s your day to be inspired! We don’t judge…just know press will be there and we’ll be taking shots of attendees throughout the day. You will receive a Glam Conference bag upon arrival to hold all of your purchases and program materials.

Past attendees have found it helpful to bring any of the following: business cards, current resume (if you’re participating in our resume reviews/coaching sessions), phone/laptop/tablet + charger, paper/pen for taking notes and a bottle of water.

Stop by our Conference Registration Table, first thing in the morning to pick up your badge and say hi! You will need your badge to enter the spaces where you hear the good stuff.

What if my plans change?

All tickets are non-refundable. We plan the day based on our ticket sales.
