Frequently Asked Questions


What are my transportation options for getting to and from the event?
We will provide a charter bus for out of town guests that will depart the Atlanta airport at 3:00pm on Wed., Oct. 25. Book your flight to arrive in Atlanta prior to 2:00pm to allow yourself enough time to navigate baggage claim. You will arrive at your hotel around 6:00pm. The bus will depart Americus for the return trip back to the airport at 9:00am on Sat., Oct. 28. We will also provide a shuttle bus for hotel guests to and from all summit events. Both the airport and in-town bus schedules will be sent to you via email prior to your arrival. If you opt to drive a rental car down instead, you will still be able to take the in-town shuttle back and forth to events if you desire. YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THIS OPTION.

What about food?
All meals are covered, except Wednesday night's dinner and Saturday morning's breakfast. Please see dinner options for Wednesday night in downtown Americus.

What should I wear?
All summit events are business casual and the Gala Awards Banquet is black tie optional.

Do I need to print and bring my tickets?
No, your name will be on our registration list.

What's the refund policy?
If you find that you are unable to attend after purchasing tickets, you will be fully reimbursed up to 7 days before the event.
