Your ticket also includes two buffet lunches, both with vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Our Welcome Party will include a tasty diner buffet spread and dessert bar.

• The Trade Supply

We'll be kicking off the retreat with our Trade Supply registration station, where you can enjoy mimosas and snacks while you meet our speakers and sponsors, reunite with past attendees, and make friends with new ones.

We are putting together the best crew of photography-related businesses for our attendees to explore at The Trade Supply. With Sunday during the day and Monday morning open for wandering around, chatting up the sponsors and sitting in on portfolio reviews, Q&A's and talks, you'll leave Inspire armed with more information and ways to build your business than you know what to do with!

• Camping Badges

The coolest headshot sessions will be set up during the retreat so you can nab yourself a killer portrait to use on your site and social media! Our Hair and Makeup team will be available to zjush you up beforehand with specially priced mini-makeovers at an additional fee and on a first come, first served basis.

• Your Guides

Peep all the speakers and instructors, then create your own custom 6-class schedule plus hands-on photo walks and wrokshops for the earliest signups, and editing and critique classes, so you can focus on what you and your business need most.
Many classes and workshop will have limited seating and are filled on a first come, first served basis.

• Pizza around the Fire

Monday night is Dine-Around night; get your crew together and venture out on the town for some grub! Or, join us upstairs for a Pale Ale & Pizza Party [cost: $25] with all-you-can-eat pizza and beer until we run out. The Tavern inside the hotel will also host a special dinner menu for you to enjoy.

After dinner, everyone better join us for After Hours at The Tavern, where we will have entertainment, Happy Hour Specials and lots of shenanigans!

• Under The Stars

Before we end our adventure, spend a night under the stars in your comfiest pajamas, lounging around, enjoying every new friendship made and getting competitive with board games galore.
And if you're really competitive?? Put together a team and head upstairs to The Tavern for Trivia Night!
