Each and every participant, including attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, Association staff, service providers, is expected to understand and follow attendance policies. These expectations apply to all BKT meeting-related events, including those events held in conjunction with BKT conferences and events
SHARED ROOMS
Every BKT attendee will reserve the right for three options: a single suite or a shared room with a specific guest one may know or from random selection. 
PLEASE NOTE: You must provide the name and email address of your preferred roommate.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
 The preferred roommate will have 48 hours to respond to your invitation, create an application, and pay their first initial deposit. If this is not done, the initial applicant will have three options: (1) you can upgrade to a single suite, (2) you can choose random selection or (3) run the risk of your ticket being cancelled for our retreat.
