Opening Reception

Non-conference and one-day conference attendees who are not registered for Sunday may NOT purchase Opening Reception tickets. 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 attendee 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.

Guests

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.
