Access to PTC Social Events
In order to attend PTC social events, you must be registered for the entire conference, registered for the day of the event, or be an authorized guest for the specific event you wish to attend.
Opening Reception and Tuesday Evening Reception
Non-conference and one-day conference attendees who are not registered for Sunday or Tuesday may NOT purchase Opening Reception or Tuesday Evening Reception tickets, respectively. Guests of registered conference delegates (as defined below) are the exception, in which case, tickets may only be purchased for guests by the registered delegates before or during the conference, based on availability.
Badges and Admittance
Official PTC badges must be worn at all times for admittance to all conference sessions, social events, and to enter the PTC Pavilion. There will be a US$50 charge to replace badges. PTC reserves the right to refuse entry or to escort out any delegate without the appropriate badge. ALL badges are non-transferable. Transferring and sharing of badges will result in confiscation of the badge and revocation of registration.
A Guest is defined as a spouse, significant other, friend, or daughter or son (21 years of age or older). Children, defined as persons under 21 years old, are not allowed to attend any PTC functions. If you wish to arrange for childcare, please contact the hotel concierge regarding the Camp Penguin Program.
No Smoking Policy
Smoking is not permitted during any conference sessions or in the conference foyer. Hawaii State law prohibits smoking in all enclosed public places which include but are not limited to all conference rooms, pavilion and foyers. Smoking is permitted only in designated areas or outdoors and at least 20 feet from an entryway or other open access.
Please note the following registration policies:
- Registrations will not be processed without full payment.
- Fee rates will be determined by the date payment is received.
- A valid form of photo identification must be presented to claim registration badge and materials.
- Materials may not be picked up for another registrant unless a copy of a valid form of photo identification of the registrant is provided.
- PTC does not accept hotel deposits or reservations. Hotel reservations, deposits and payment are made directly with the hotel.
All credit card transactions are processed in U.S. Dollars and are subject to the current exchange rates. Only U.S. Dollars are accepted. International funds must be submitted in U.S. Dollars.
Only PTC-authorized signs will be allowed on the Hilton property. PTC-authorized signs include the PTC’13 information kiosks and door banners. PTC and Hilton security will remove all other unauthorized signs.
If you are interested in purchasing a door banner or having your hospitality suite / meeting room location listed on the PTC’13 Suite Location Directory, please contact Linda Ristow via email or phone at +1.808.941.3789, ext. 109.
