Farm Tour tickets

If you choose to go on the FARM TOUR on DAY 2 of the conference, August 15th, select the FARM TOUR ticket. These tickets are FREE but do require purchase of a CONFERENCE TICKET.

QUICK AND EASY ticket selection and purchase process - follow these steps:

1. Ticket selection window. Select all the conference tickets you want (including FARM TOUR if you are going on the farm tour) and enter the quantity for each ticket type. Click CHECKOUT.

2. Order Form / Registration page: Answer the questions about the ticket buyer (your name, email address), then fill in the Registration Type and Tax Receipt Info form, (so you get a proper tax invoice), payment details, and billing details.

3. Answer the questions for Ticket #1. Eventbrite has already filled in the information you just entered above for the ticket buyer. Now complete the other questions about your occupation, farm (if applicable) and dietary requirements. You only have to answer these questions ONCE, unless you are buying extra tickets on behalf of someone else and the information is different.

4. Move on to Ticket #2 (assuming you have selected more than 1 ticket). To make it QUICK and SIMPLE, there is a drop down list called "COPY DATA FROM" which allows you to select TICKET#1 (the conference ticket) from the list. Select TICKET#1 in this list. It will copy and paste all the information you already entered in TICKET#1 (conference ticket) into the next ticket you are ordering. SIMPLE. But you do need to change the name on this ticket if the ticket is for someone else. You can also change anything else evenbrite has filled in if you need to.

5. Move on to Ticket #3 and so on, using the same process as in point 4 above. Remember, to change the name on the ticket if the ticket is for someone else. Having the right name on the ticket is important so we can do things like print name badges for everyone at the conference using the information you provide us.

6. When you are finished, press the green PAY NOW button to make payment.

This information is repeated in the Order Form/ Registration Page.
