Guests at Conference?

So my best friend and I were talking about Chicago and she is thinking of coming along when I go for Conference. Well I'm totally down with it but wonder what guests can attend? She would be fine without coming to anything but I would think it would be nice if she could come to some things if she wanted. I think to register a "guest" though they have to pay fee right? I don't think she wants to. Just curious of how to plan ahead. Probably going to arrive Sunday and stay until Saturday or Sunday so we can check out Chicago together. Thanks for any insight.

I am still torn as to whether not I am bringing the Hubs. I may just have him come that Thursday and stay until Sunday. But that is 7 days of hotel stay in Chicago...... expensive

This is what I found on CC under the Conferences page:


Rules Pertaining to Children and Guests

While The Pampered Chef has a philosophy and a business opportunity based on blending family and career, it is not appropriate to bring your family with you to all business events. Official Pampered Chef meetings are not an appropriate environment for children. Even quiet infants and well-behaved children can be a distraction from the business purpose.

1. You may not bring infants or children to official Pampered Chef meetings.

2. If you are a nursing mother and find that you need to feed your baby during a meeting, schedule your time to meet with your childcare provider between General Sessions and Workshops, so that you can be with your baby at critical times. You can also arrange for another Consultant to take notes if you need to be away from the meeting.

3. If your family has been helping you with your business, and you would like to share some of the excitement with them, guests age 18 years and older may be registered (and must be paid for when applicable) to attend National Conference and other meetings open to guests. You may be required to show proof of age.

4. As there is a minimum management level required to attend Leadership Conference or certain meetings, no guests (unless otherwise indicated in the registration information) may attend those meetings.

Yes, to attend any of the meetings/events, they have to register and pay a registration fee.

In the past, guest registration has ranged from a one-size fits all plan (guests pay the full registration and attend all events, including a Supportive Spouse panel and HO tour) to an a la carte plan, in which guests can register for the parts of conference in which they want to participate. The a la carte plan is the one that's been in place for the past several years, so it's likely to be the option offered this year.

If your guest isn't interested in your biz, then having them attend Conference may not be in their best interest. Sure, you could create interest (and possibly get them excited enough to sign as a consultant on their team), but it could also work the other way, too. And since the complete registration for a guest is the same price as for consultants, it does represent a significant monetary outlay for your friend.

Or if you earned Free or discounted conference from March sales, maybe you can offer to split the cost with her- if she is truly interested in going, (assuming it's full price for a guest).
