The breakfast and lunch are optimized for the number of registered seminar attendees and registered guests only. This is to ensure that we order enough food plus seating. Your guests can attend all evening activities and these do not require a “Companion Guest Pass.” The Companion Guest Pass must be purchased before the registration deadline and these are not sold on-site at the seminar.
