Can I get the Early Bird rate after the May 1st deadline?
No. Early Bird rates are available for a limited time to those who commit early to attending conference.

What if I am waiting to hear back about my grant application? Can I still get the Early Bird rate?
No. However, StateraArts will happily reimburse the amount of your full or partial registration waiver in the event that you do receive a grant. Separately, Statera Members receive the Early Bird rate for as long as registration remains open.

When does registration close?
Registration will remain open as long as there is space available. Register early to ensure that you get a spot.

I’m a student but don’t have a professor attending conference. Do I still get the student discount?
No. The Student Rate is only available to students attending with their professor.

Is there a discounted lodging option connected to the conference?
Not at this time. We will update that information at if and when that occurs.

Do you use a conference app to help us stay connected to attendees, speakers, and schedules?
Yes. We use the Whova App and it will be made available to all attendees and speakers 6 weeks before the start of conference.

Will StateraArts be hosting performances during conference?
NYC is a treasure trove of incredible theatre experiences and we are keeping evenings free for attendees to make the most of their time. Space is at a premium and StateraArts will not be hosting full performances during conference. We will provide a list of available shows when the conference draws near.
