Some logisitcs: 

  • Registration starts at 9:00am! Get there early to check-in, get your program, and find a seat.
  • Parking is FREE in designated areas. There will be signs to help you find parking. You will probably get towed if you choose to park elsewhere, and we are not responsible.
  • We expect the program to conclude at 4:00pm but we might run long.
  • You’ll get a whole hour for lunch. Make the most of that time by meeting new people.
  • Only you are allowed to enter. Unless your guest registered and paid, he/she will not be allowed in just because they’re with you.

We hate rules as much as the next guy, but some basic behaviors will make this a pleasant experience for everyone. We ask for your cooperation. Therefore…

  • Tickets are transferable until Feb. 1, 2013.
  • No food or drink is allowed in the auditorium.
  • Lunch is included in your ticket!
  • Bring Cash! Just in case…
  • When we say, “the doors will close at ‘x’ time,” we mean business. That’s how we stay on schedule.

If we can help you in any way, find one of our concierge volunteers whose job it is to make your day exceptional!!

The AFTER PARTY is at 4:30pm at VGBG in the NC Music Factory. It’s just across the street so you can just walk over after the event. Have questions, comments or needs? Email us at
