2016 O2 Experience Registration
Here are the registration details:
Hey Designers! We have made a few changes to improve registration for the 2016 O2 Experience! Please take a minute to review the new options and deadline chart prior to registration.
new! Transferable or Non-Transferable Ticket Option For 2016, we are offering two ticket prices. The first is for a transferable ticket. This ticket type is transferable to another active Designer from date of purchase until July 5, 2016. To transfer a ticket, the owner of the convention ticket will collect money from the purchasing Designer and then complete the Convention Transfer Request Form and submit to the Events Department to complete the name change. The second option is a non-transferable ticket. This ticket type allows only the original purchaser admission to convention. If that Designer is unable to attend, the ticket is void. There is a $50 savings for purchasing a non-transferable ticket. Origami Owl does not assist with the sale of any transferable tickets and will only accept Convention Transfer Request Forms through July 5, 2016. There are no refunds on any convention tickets.
new! Payment Plan Option Also new in 2016 is a payment plan option that allows for monthly installments to be paid toward the convention fee. If a Designer registers for convention from December 1, 2015- April 30, 2016 (after the early bird incentive gift option has passed) they have the option to select the payment plan. The initial amount due at time of registration is $50 USD/ $60 CAD, then $50 USD/ $60 CAD per month is owed until payment is finalized. At the first of each month, the Designer will receive a notice that another $50 payment is due. It isn’t an automatic draft. The Designer needs to log in and make/approve the payment each month. The full payment must be received by July 5, 2016. There will not be any refunds for partial payments or cancellations. new! New Designers Can Register for a Discounted Rate New Designers who join O2 leading up to convention will now have the opportunity to register at the early registration rate. For 60 days following their O2 activation, the new Designer will be able to purchase a $175 USD/ $210 CAD non-transferable or $225 USD/ $270 CAD transferable ticket to convention using a special code included in their business kit.
new! Two Guest Registration Types Guests are allowed to purchase tickets for the O2 Experience again this year! Guest tickets are great for potential sponsors, spouses or an assistant for guests that need mobility assistance. Guests must be 18 years or older, and they must NOT be a Designer, Co-applicant or Owlette. Guest registrations will be checked against the O2 database by our CG Support Team. Each Designer is allowed to bring one Guest. Since Guests usually do not want to attend all the sessions, there are two types of Guest tickets available: 1) Full Access Guest Tickets are $150 USD/ $180 CAD and allow your guest into the General Session, Workshops, the O2 Store and Opening/Closing Night Parties which includes Designer Recognition. 2) Party Access Guest Tickets are $100 USD/ $120 CAD, which will allow Guests to the Opening/Closing Night Parties and includes Designer Recognition. Guest tickets are non-transferable or refundable and will only be sold through July 5, 2016. O2 Experience 2016 Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL August 4-6, 2016
new! Stay at an O2 Host Hotel for a Chance to Win a Disney Cruise Vacation! There are lots of hotel choices in Orlando. However, Origami Owl has made it easy for Designers to enjoy their convention experience by staying at the hotels closest to the convention center at discounted rates! In Orlando, the O2 Experience will take place at the West Building of the Orange County Convention Center. There are four hotel options to choose from this year. Three of the hotels have a sky bridge connecting them to the convention center, and the other is still within walking distance but offers very kid-friendly amenities. All of the hotels will be filled with O2 Designers wanting to share their stories and connect with new faces! This year, we want to encourage Designers to book and stay at the O2 host hotels by offering a HUGE incentive. Origami Owl will be giving away 4 Disney Cruise Vacations for a family of four! One winner will be drawn from the list of Origami Owl Designers staying at each of the four O2 host hotels. So, if you book one hotel room for you and your family at the Hilton, you will be entered to win the Disney Cruise Vacation from the Hilton pool of Designers. If you book one room at the Hilton but have three Designers staying with you, simply put all four Designer names on the reservation and make sure each person checks in at the front desk. Then all four Designers will be entered to win the Disney Cruise Vacation! Only Designers who attended convention and are on the hotel rooming list will be entered into the drawings. Guests/Owlettes are not eligible. The winners will be drawn on the last day of convention after attendance is verified. If a Designer books more than one room in his/her name, or has rooms at multiple hotels, they will only be entered into the drawing once. A non-refundable first-night deposit is required at three of the O2 host hotels. Hotel rates range from $119 - $159 USD plus tax per night.
Early Registration Early registration for the O2 Experience will open on September 15 at 12:00 (CT) and continue through September 30, 2015. The early registration fee is $175 USD/ $210 CAD for a non-transferable ticket and $225 USD/ $270 CAD for a transferable ticket. The first 2,000 Designers registered will have the option to pick a Hoot Loot Hour for the O2 Store plus a $100 Classic Product Collection incentive gift. A Hoot Loot Hour is a designated early shopping time for the O2 Store that must be selected before checkout during the registration process. Any Guests, Owlettes, or Co-Applicants attending will automatically get the same Hoot loot Hour as their Designer. Once all of the Hoot Loot Hours have been filled, any Designer that buys an early registration ticket will still receive a $100 Classic Product Collection incentive gift. The payment plan option is not available for this registration period. Regular Registration with Gift There is a special time period from October 1 through November 30, 2015 where Designers who register for convention at the regular registration fee of $200 USD/ $240 CAD for a non-transferable ticket and $250 USD/ $300 CAD for a transferable ticket will receive an incentive gift—a $75 Classic Product Collection. The payment plan option is not available for this registration period. Regular Registration Designers who register for convention from December 1, 2015 through April 30, 2016 will pay $200 USD/ $240 CAD for a non-transferable ticket and $250 USD/ $300 CAD for a transferable ticket. The payment plan option is available for this registration period. The initial amount due at time of registration is $50 USD/ $60 CAD, then $50 USD/ $60 CAD per month is owed until payment is finalized.
