BRING THE FAMILY FAMILY

INFINITE FUN FOR KIDS AND PARENTS ALIKE

WHAT IS THE
FAMILY PROGRAM?

Each year the Durand family creates an entertainment agenda for spouses and children of conference attendee’s while the conference is in session.

Our goal is to line up some of the best activities each city has to offer, so that families can enjoy a week together exploring a new city each summer.

Thank you to our family sponsor, LikeMinds Consulting:

FAMILY PROGRAM PRICING

We subsidize guest registration fees through the conference, as the fees charged don’t cover total costs. Eating in hotels—and entertainment—with a family can really add up! But we love to do it, and if you take full advantage of the agenda, you’ll see what a bargain it is.

To register as a family guest, attendees must first register for Identiverse and then there will be a section to add family guests.
