There are 118 days and counting (okay, maybe 117 + hours depending on how you’re counting!) until the official kick-off of our 17th Annual Conference, held this year at the gorgeous Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson, Arizona, from May 20-22. We sell out every year and despite booking a larger capacity venue this year, we’re planning to sell out again. If you’re thinking about attending the HSCG conference this year, check out the conference pages and the highlights we’ve done here on the blog on cosmetic, business, and soapmaking topics as well as special seminars being offered this year. While you’re on the website, not only can you get all the information about speakers, topics, registration, hotel, special in-depth seminars, and more, we’ve also added a thermometer bar chart feature to show just how close we are to selling out.
Why sign up now? Well of course the conference will be fantastic, you say, but where’s the great big rush? Here are a few reasons you should be signing up pronto:
- January 31 (less than 10 days!!) marks the close of the member scholarship application period. Get those applications in now and you could be going to this year’s conference for free, thanks to Veracity Insurance Solutions!!
- Member Early bird registration rates save you $120 off the current non-member rate AND these early bird rates expire at the end of February. (Trust us, it will sneak up on you – as do most months.) Pssst…if you’re not a member, this more than pays for your membership (just saying).
- Pre-conference seminars will sell out. We allow just 30 attendees for each of these intimate sessions and they are already starting to sell out (EEK!). Sign up early to get one of the coveted spots in these intensive, in-depth sessions.
- Only 77 spots and counting until we sell out. We have a 400-attendee cap. We just can’t fit any more than that at conference. Don’t get left on the wait list!
- Paypal will give you 6 months to pay. Yep, breathe a HUGE sigh of relief. You don’t have to pay that conference registration bill all at once. Choose Paypal’s Bill Me Later® service upon check out and upon your credit approval, you’ll have 6 months to pay off the registration without interest (no interest? Sweet!!).
If you’re pondering signing up, don’t wait too long – we’re at 77 spots left and counting. And keep an eye on the Sell Out Countdown to see how panicked you should be about not having signed up yet.
Are you joining us this year? What are you most excited about?
