Event Information

I would like to register for this event as a: *
Workshop Presenters:
 
Presenter proposals are due Saturday, November 4th!
 
Single sessions will be 1 hour in length, and double sessions will be 2 hours in length with a 30-minute break in the middle of the session. HDT provides a $30 workshop stipend per single session and a $60 workshop stipend per double session. In determining whether your topic is better suited for a single or double session, you might consider whether or not it requires hands-on participation time. Double sessions should include an information portion, as well as some type of hands-on portion. Try to avoid a 2-hour “lecture type” presentation. If you have presented in the past, you might consider offering a more advanced “Part II” to your previously offered topics. Workshops typically have a maximum of 27-35 participants, depending on the size of the location you are assigned. Please note on your registration if you would like to set a smaller maximum for your workshop. Presenters may attend other workshops for a fee of $6 per single session, and $12 per double session, as long as it does not interfere with clean-up or set-up for the sessions they are teaching (registration at check-in or before is required). We offer a complimentary lunch for our presenters, but advanced registration for lunch is required. You will need to arrive at least 20 minutes before your first session begins for check-in and set-up.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to celebrating our 12th annual Back to Basics with you!

Vendors/Exhibitors:
 
Vendor/Exhibitor registrations will be accepted up until the day of the event, as space allows. Note: Registrations received after November 4th will not be included in printed promotional materials.
 
Booths are available for $30 per space for the day. Booths are approximately 8’ x 8’. One table per booth will be provided if indicated on your form. Electricity is available for an additional $5 on a limited basis and must be requested in advance. Set-up times will be from 5PM-7PM on Friday, and 7AM-8AM on Saturday. In response to the positive feedback we received, we will be keeping the schedule we initiated last year to allow more time for participants to visit the vendor/exhibitor area throughout the day. Event hours are from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. You must be set up until the last workshop begins at 3:45PM. You may stay set up until the event closes to shoppers at 5:00PM, if you choose. The vendor area must be emptied and cleaned up by 6:00PM.  Vendors/Exhibitors may purchase a lunch for $9 (advanced registration for lunch is required). Vendors/Exhibitors may attend workshops for a fee of $6 per single session or $12 per double session, if someone else can manage your booth (registration at morning check-in or before is required). We are once again offering an incentive for participants to visit vendor booths. If you would like to offer a door prize, we will place a bucket at your booth where attendees can drop in a ticket with their name pre-printed on it. Staff will come around at 3:30PM  to have you draw a winning ticket and collect the prizes. Winners will be posted on the stage in the commons area. As always, the public is welcome to enter the vendor/exhibitor area at no charge.
 
Cancellation Policy: Vendors/Exhibitors who are unable to attend the event should contact event staff at b2b@happydancingturtle.org. Cancellations received by noon on Monday, January 8, 2018 will receive a refund minus a $5 processing fee. No refunds will be issued after 12:00 PM on January 8.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to celebrating our 12th annual Back to Basics with you!
