14. Why does registration include an information release?2023-05-25T13:48:27-04:00

The registration form collects information from attendees including their name, title, email and organization. Attendees must acknowledge understanding because the conference organizers will use this information to send conference-related emails and to track registrations. Additionally, attendee names and job titles will be displayed on the Hopin platform during the conference so they can network with others, and CANHEIT and its representatives may take photos, videos and screenshots, which may or may not include attendee names in reference to CANHEIT 2023.

15. Are there discounts or complimentary tickets available for breakout session presenters?2023-05-25T13:50:10-04:00

In line with previous CANHEIT conferences, there are no discounts/promo codes or complimentary tickets available for presenters. The CANHEIT planning committee has made its best efforts to keep ticket pricing to the lowest possible cost for all attendees.

16. Can multiple tickets be purchased at once?2023-05-25T13:49:51-04:00

There is no option to purchase multiple tickets at once. Conference tickets must be purchased individually as each ticket is linked directly to the attendee’s email address, which gives them access to the Hopin platform and the hybrid components of the conference. This also ensures that attendees can identify any dietary restrictions or accommodation requirements during the registration process.

17. What is the deadline to register?2023-06-18T16:35:31-04:00

Please register for a virtual-only ticket by June 18 at 5 p.m. EDT. In-person tickets are sold out.
