ABOUT THE TICKET TYPES:
Unconference Tickets – Unconference tickets do not include a workshop ticket. Unconference tickets provide entrance to the afternoon events starting at 11 AM. Lunch is provided free to Unconference participants (sponsored by the GMU STC Student Chapter).
Workshop Tickets – Workshop tickets include a ticket to the afternoon unconference. You can only attend one workshop because they all run simultaneously.
Sharing Registrant Information with Vendors – Vendors are critical to the success of TC Summer Camp. Although other revenue models are possible, TC Camp has chosen a vendor-supported revenue model, in which attendees can attend TC Summer Camp at no cost. TC Summer Camp also offers professional-quality morning workshops at far below market rate. This would not be possible without the support of our vendors and sponsors.
Vendors and sponsors expect value in return for their support of TC Summer Camp. Vendors seek leads, which they hope to turn into sales. By default (unless a registrant purchases an opt-out ticket), TC Camp shares registrant information with vendors. This is common for other professional conferences.
Opt-Out Policy – To accommodate the small number of registrants who, in past years, requested to opt-out from vendor sharing, TC Summer Camp 2016 will have a formal opt-out option. To compensate for lost vendor/sponsor value, TC Camp will offer an “Opt-Out” ticket that represents a fee to opt-out from vendor sharing. Only those registrants who purchase an “Opt-Out” ticket will have their information withheld from the vendors/sponsors.
