Virtual FLOAT 2022
Maybe you're concerned about the COVID-19 Pandemic...maybe the timing is just not right for you to join us in Chicago....or maybe you just don't look good in orange! Whatever your reason for not attending FLOAT 2022 in person, for the first time ever we offer you a remote option for the convention.
That's right...our 2022 FLOAT Convention will feature a virtual format that includes twenty (20) different class options as well as live streaming during the event of live parties, our Vendor Showcase, behind-the-scenes footage and more.
And for those of you who WILL be coming to FLOAT 2022, there are even better benefits for you as well! So keep reading...
IF YOU WILL NOT BE ATTENDING FLOAT 2022 IN PERSON AND ARE NOT ALREADY REGISTERED TO ATTEND THE CONVENTION:
1. Upon enrolling in the program, you will be presented a selection of twenty (20) classes that you can choose from. You will be asked to choose one (1) class out of two (2) being offered each academic session, with there being ten (10) different sessions. So with the virtual remote program, you will get access to ten (10) of FLOAT's general classes.
2. During FLOAT 2022, these twenty (20) general classes are going to be recorded as they are presented live in-class in Chicago. You can sneak a peek at those class offerings by using this link - virtual classes are marked with an *
3. Additional live events and streams will be offered and presented during the convention, between Sunday, January 23rd, and Thursday, January 27th. Activities included will be live streams of the Club L8X karaoke party, Opening Night festivities, The FLOAT Beach Party, virtual tours of the competition entries and the Vendor Showcase, the Designer Awards Gala and several surprise pieces of content.
4. In March 2021, all of our virtual classes will then be uploaded and as a virtual attendee, you'll get thirty (30) days to replay the classes you pre-selected for free from when they go live online. Videos are presented as a stream option; they will not be available for you to download permanently.
5. A FLOAT "Care Package" will also be available for an added cost. Package includes an Academic FLOATBook (black and white version, which includes ALL the class notes of ALL of FLOAT's general classes, not just the virtual ones), an official FLOAT 2022 Logo T-Shirt and a surprise gift from FLOAT.
6. If you decide you want to attend in person after all, you can use the money you have paid towards the virtual remote program towards your full registration for FLOAT 2022 (subject to a small administrative charge of $25.00)
COST OF THIS PROGRAM IS $299.00
IF YOU ARE ATTENDING FLOAT 2022 IN PERSON:
1. You will be able to select either a ten (10) class virtual option or the full twenty (20) class virtual option.
2. Unlike the virtual remote plan, as an in-person attendee you'll be allowed to pick and choose which ten (10) classes you wish to take, regardless of when they are scheduled. Or of course, if you purchase the full twenty (20) class option, then you get them all.
3. Once the streaming option is completed, you will be able to download a digital copy of each class you enrolled in at NO ADDED COST.
4. This gives you TREMENDOUS FREEDOM at the convention! This makes things sooooo much easier to decide which classes you should take in person versus ones that you can watch the recording of at a later time.
COST IS $199.00 FOR TEN (10) CLASSES OR $299.00 FOR ALL TWENTY (20) CLASSES FOR THE VIRTUAL IN-PERSON OPTION UNTIL OCTOBER 31, 2021. PRICE INCREASES ON NOVEMBER 1
IF YOU ARE REGISTERED FOR FLOAT 2022 BUT CHOOSING TO SWITCH TO THE VIRTUAL OPTION:
1. You will automatically receive access to all twenty (20) virtual classes with the option to purchase them later at a discounted price.
2. You will still maintain the option to purchase an Academic FLOATbook in either version and have it shipped to you (shipping costs are extra)
3. You will be permitted to enter the FLOATee Awards as any fully registered delegate.
4. You will retain your status as a returning delegate in 2024 and therefore receive the returning discounted rate
5. You will get to retain your membership in the FLOAT Forum on Facebook, the exclusive group for FLOAT attendees.
THERE IS NO COST TO YOU AS A FULLY REGISTERED FLOAT DELEGATE TO ENROLL IN THE VIRTUAL ROLLOVER
