If you did not receive your ticket, you may visit one of our two Will Call/Registration/Information booths conveniently located at both entrances.

The following entrances will be open:

If you pre-purchased boxed lunch tickets, please remember to bring one for each member in your group on Saturday in order to receive your lunch. If you were not able to purchase a boxed lunch in time, there will be concessions available onsite for your convenience during the conference weekend. Also, you will have a lunch break to go offsite if you choose.


You will be able to shop around the concourse at the conference for materials, books, and clothing to remember the weekend. Look for the first ever, newly released Bible study from Extraordinary Women Ministries, Becoming a Woman of Extraordinary Faith, with a DVD series by Julie Clinton compiling stories of faith from many of the speakers you hear at Extraordinary Women conferences!
