What is the correct way to secure a Double Occupancy booking if I have already selected my roomate? : To secure a double occupancy booking each participant needs to book their package separately even if the intention is to share a room with a designated person. When completing the initial registration you will be asked whether or not you know who you wish to share a room with and asked to give the name of the person at that time. We will then pair you with the person you have requested. Each participant must register separately, as we must know the exact information of each person on the hotel site at all times.

Is there anyway to make my spouse/male companion responsible for his own ticket for the Business and Pleasure Package? Yes, if you wish for your male companion to be responsible for his own ticket, please book under The Luxury For Us package. Booking this way allows for each person to register and be invoiced individually . Please note selecting this package does not guarantee you a king bed. Room style will be based on availability for the rate you have chosen .

Is there anyway to separate the invoice for The Mommy and Me Package? Because this package was created for minors, each minor must remain on the same registration as an adult at all times. For that reason this invoice can not be separated. 

When will the official Itinerary be available : The event itinerary is available without specifics prior to purchase , the official event itinerary will be available to event attendees only once a purchase is made. What this means is you will know exactly what type of events are included with your purchase prior to making your investment, and will receive the specifics of each event (location, time, theme, dress code, etc) on the itinerary after making your investments. 

My Homegirl wants to sleep in my room , but isn't purchasing a package, will she be allowed to attend any of the events? While I can not govern who you allow in your room, I can assure you that no guest will be allowed entry into any weekend event without having a paid for package. Security and administration will be in abundance for the weekend, and any guest found to be in attendance fraudulently will be asked to leave, the guest who they are accompanying will forfeit their entry into any further weekend activities, and will receive no refund. 

I didn't purchase a Hotel Package , but decided when I got to Houston I liked the host hotel better than the one I booked. Am I able to enjoy the amenities of the host hotel until I'm ready to go back to my hotel? No, Although you are an event ticket holder , you are not a registered hotel guest. The host hotel has a very strict policy on unregistered guests . For this reason the hotel package is strongly recommended. Guests will be allowed on the premises of the host hotel during event hours only. Once the event commences guest will be expected to leave, unless in the company of a registered hotel guest. The hotel was strategically picked for its elegance, convenience, and luxury element. Selecting the hotel package allows for you to receive the full experience of The Take Off.

Who will the guest speakers be?  Guest speakers are in the process of being secured. We will announce guest speakers as they become available. Our guest speakers are being hand chosen to match the level and quality of event.
