FAQs

  • Do you offer any nonprofit or student discounts? We offer a special discounted rate of $250 for the July 9-10 conference programming for current students and professionals working for a nonprofit or NGO. Please complete this form to apply for the discount. Once your application has been approved (typically within 5 business days) you will be sent a special discount code that you can use at registration.
  • How do I reserve a room at the conference hotel? Please identify yourself as an attendee of the 2020 Theraplay International Conference when making your reservation at the Hilton Orrington via telephone at 1-800-HILTONS. Attendees can also make reservations at their website by entering the code TIC20 in the box marked Group/Convention Code. Conference rates apply to rooms for the dates July 5 through July 12. Available rooms are limited. Please make your reservations early.
  • What are my transportation/parking options? Shuttle and taxi services are available from both airports. We also recommend taking advantage of shared ride services, carpooling, or train if possible. The hotel shuttle van may be available for short distances from the hotel. Parking at the hotel incurs a daily valet fee and there is no free parking within the City of Evanston. On Thursday, July 9 we will be providing a group shuttle to/from the Wilmette Harbor Club. Parking and navigation through the Chicago area can be challenging at best - we recommend using one of the alternatives available if possible.

Please email John Castro at registrar@theraplay.org for any transfer or refund requests or call 1-847-256-7334x125. Transfers will incur a processing fee of $50 for the transfer of your entire ticket and any related social events. Transfers of just social events will incur a $10 fee.

  • How do I receive continuing education? For information on continuing education credits available, please visit our conference page. Participants will receive 12 CEs for their attendance July 9 and 10, 2020. In order to be eligible for continuing education, attendees must sign in and out and be in attendance for the keynote and afternoon sessions on both days. Staff/volunteers will be onsite to facilitate this process, and you will receive additional instructions closer to the conference.

  • Will presentation materials be available? PDF files of presentation materials will be emailed to attendees 2-3 weeks before the conference.
