Ticketing Questions:

1. Do I have to have a ticket in order to attend?

Yes. Due to limited space, we have a 400 guest capacity. A ticket guarantees your seat in the conference hall and will give you priority over guests without tickets.

2. Why do I need a ticket if Elijah Conference is a free event?

We ask that you register to guarantee that you have a seat in the conference center and to help us best prepare for your arrival. The more accurate our count is, the better we can accommodate you.

3. Do I need to print my tickets? Why?

Yes. At check-in, there will be a line for attendees with printed tickets and attendees without printed tickets. By printing your tickets, you will save a significant amount of time in the registration lines. If you cannot print your tickets, you can also download them to your smartphone via your confirmation email. If neither of these options are possible, we can still check you in without your ticket.

4. Is it okay if the name on my ticket does not match the name of the attendee?

Yes. If you are registering a group and you do not have the name of each attendee, you can hold the extra ticket(s) in your name. Please be sure that you cancel any extra tickets that you have, however, as Elijah Conference approaches.

5. What services are my tickets valid for?

Your online registration submission reserves tickets for the entire conference. This includes all day sessions on Saturday. There is no way to register for individual services. By submitting your registration, you are able to attend the entire event.

6. How can I cancel my ticket(s)?

1. Will there be childcare or nursery provided?

Yes. There will be nursery provided, for the entire Conference (including Day Sessions on Saturday), for children 1 to 5 years old. Due to limited space in the nursery, please arrive early to check your child in before each service. Nursery care will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

Registration/ Check-in Questions:

1. What time will registration be open at the conference?

Registration will be 3p-6p on Friday, September 1st of Elijah Conference. The earlier the better for check-in is recommended, as it will give you a chance to avoid large crowds and long lines.
