How can I justify the cost of attending?

 

A conference that spans four days has many costs from venues, to meals, marketing, logistics and plenty of other miscellaneous costs as you would imagine. We are bringing in world class presenters, have booked the largest conference facility in Provincetown for two full days and one night, are providing two lunches for full conference pass holders, a cocktail party, a dance party, an auction, a Cuba movie day, multiple exhibitor tables and a vendor marketplace for Cuban art and merchandise.

 

We set the Registration fee according to our costs in relation to value for the attendee. We hope you agree that all attendees will get a fantastic return on their investment by attending this conference. 

 

Lodging is relatively inexpensive at this time in June and if you are flying into Boston, you do not need to rent a car to get to Provincetown. You can take the fast ferry which is just a 90 minute boat ride and you do not need a car in Provincetown.

 

Register today to secure your spot. A Full Conference Pass is $150, Saturday only pass is $50.
