Why did you go fully virtual?
- As you know, we’ve been closely monitoring the COVID situation. The health and safety of our attendees, the Abrigo team, and speakers are of utmost importance to us. Therefore, due to coronavirus case numbers, new variants of the virus, and the inability for many to be vaccinated at this time, we’ve made the difficult decision to convert the ThinkBIG conference to a fully virtual format.
I was already registered before the decision to go fully virtual. Do I need to do anything?
- No, as we promoted before the decision if the pandemic kept us from meeting in person, your registration would simply switch to virtual.
What does the conference fee include?
- Three days of education, sessions and networking, and mobile app for presentation documentation. Plus, access to recorded presentations for a month after the conference.
When does conference registration end?
- Regular registration ends May 11, 2021
What is the conference registration refund policy?
- If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, you may do so using your confirmation portal or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the extenuating circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic, attendees may cancel their registration at any time prior to the event and receive a full refund. All sessions will be available for streaming for 1 month after the conference.
Since the conference is now fully virtual, if I've already made hotel reservations at La Cantera what will happen?
- For those of you who made hotel reservations in the Abrigo block at La Cantera Resort & Spa, your reservations have been cancelled as of 2/23/2021. If you made hotel reservations or air arrangements, please remember to cancel those yourself.
Can I see an Abrigo product?
- The ThinkBIG Conference is an educational event. Due to popular demand, there will be optional sessions for demonstrations in afternoon Solution Centers and a Product Discovery Lab. To schedule an individual meeting or demonstration of Abrigo products, just ask any of the Abrigo Team members.
I can only attend for one day of the conference. Can I get a discounted rate?
- We do not offer partial conference rates.
How can I stay up-to-date on all things ThinkBIG Conference before and during the event?
- Continue to check the ThinkBIG conference website for additional information and speakers. A pre-conference email with further details will be sent to registrants with final details in mid-May.
Looking for the Sageworks Summit, MST National CECL Conference or the BAM User Group?
- You are in the right place. The 2021 ThinkBIG presented by Abrigo is the combination of these long-standing industry conferences.
What is the conference cancellation policy?
