Multiple emails are sent throughout the year to past and current Attendees letting them know of the important dates for registration and deadlines. If you have never participated in METROCON, simply go to this website’s Home page and enter your name and email address in the Attendee category under our “Want to hear from us?” section in the website footer.
If our emails never made it into your inbox, it could be that your provider or company has the spam settings extra high and they are landing there. When sending out these emails, we take extra measures to do everything possible not to land in recipients' junk mail folders by not breaking spam rules, but, unfortunately, as every internet service provider and corporation is different, we cannot control what ultimately goes through. If you are working for a large company, please ask your I.T. Department to make sure that all emails from @metrocon.info - specifically firstname.lastname@example.org - come through and/or sign up (see the Q&A directly above) to receive information about METROCON using an email address with Gmail, Yahoo, etc.
To try to get into a sold out course we recommend that you start forming a line outside the room of the course that you are interested in anywhere from 10-15 min before the course starts. Inevitably a few people who officially registered online for the class will not show up for one reason or another. If/when this occurs and there are empty seats right as the class starts, then the volunteer Classroom Monitor will let people into the class as per their order in the line. Obviously, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to get into the class, but we have used this method for years, and it works for most cases.
We attract a diverse array of Exhibitors catering to the corporate, education, healthcare, hospitality, institutional, multifamily, residential, and retail design fields. Many of them are members of the sponsoring associations. If there is not a company on our Exhibitor List that you would like to see, we encourage you to stress the importance of exhibiting at METROCON to them.
