Registration and Payment Questions

Is there a Group Registration option?

Unfortunately, no. For Extravaganza 2023 there is not a discounted group registration rate.  We are happy to invite spouse and partners to participate in the event for a special rate. You can add your spouse/partner to your registration using the "add a guest" feature at the time of registration for a special guest rate. Spouses and/or partners will only be able to take advantage of the discounted rate if registered at the time as the primary registrant. Guests will only be able to register for the same event as the primary registrant, i.e. onsite primary registrant can only add onsite guest and online only primary registrants can add online only guest. 

Does each participant need their own email address?
Yes! The email each participant registers with will be used to verify registration and give access to the event.

I have registered for the event, what's next?

If you are joining us onsite in Anaheim, you are responsible for booking your own hotel room. Discounted rates are only guaranteed for a limited time. Check out the hotel details on our Housing page. 

If you are joining us online, once the workshop options have been released, you can begin to create your personalized schedule within the Network App. Extravaganza connection information will be sent to registered participants closer to the event. A unique link will be created and uploaded 

What is your cancellation policy? 

All registration payments for the online event are non-refundable. You can check out our full cancellation policy here.

How do I pay my balance owed?
If you owe a balance for your Extravaganza registration or your Network membership, there are three options:

  1. Bring a check or pay by credit card at time of registration.
  2. Pay online by logging in to your network account.
  3. Mail a check for the balance.
