REGISTRATION/TICKETS

Pierce College is kindly processing our registration fee (tickets) using their online ticketing application, Vendini.

As you go through their application you’ll find that only Thursday’s ticket can be purchased. That’s by design due to the limitations of the ticketing app and our need for a single fee for a two day event.  In other-words, when you order your Thursday ticket it covers both Thursday and Friday.

Go to http://tinyurl.com/WACC2016-Tickets to secure your registration ticket.  * NOTE: Credit cards accepted, only – sorry, no checks!

If needed, watch this short video on how to go through the ticketing application
