Because of the times 2019 Seating

You spoke! We listened!

As you know by now, seating is going to be different this year. This year, when you register for BOTT, you will be allowed to choose your own seat. This seat will be yours for the duration of the conference. Please remember, in order to choose your own seat, you must be making the purchase from a desktop or laptop computer. A smartphone or tablet will automatically choose best available for you and not allow you to select a specific seat from the venue map.


If you have questions, first watch the video above. If there's something the video doesn't cover, or you need clarification, please read our list of frequently asked questions below. If you still have a question, email Gayle Wallace, and she should be able to assist you.
