Registration Information

As of August 10, 2016 all registrations for GHC 16 are sold out. For those of you who weren’t able to secure a spot at GHC 16, we understand your disappointment. We would love to accommodate everyone who wants to attend GHC, but as the conference grows rapidly — attendance has jumped from 4,500 in 2013 to over 15,000 in 2016— we must balance increased demand with our goal of delivering a high-quality experience for attendees. To ensure the quality of our programming and to respect safety, facility and logistical considerations, we are unable to expand the capacity of GHC any more this year.

But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the exciting action happening on the ground in Houston. We will stream Wednesday and Friday’s keynotes using Livestream. You can watch from the comfort of your home or plan your own viewing with friends and family. Additionally, ABI.Local, our network of local communities, will host some events to bring the inspiration and connection found at GHC to their local communities. Check the ABI.Local website in September for information about these parties.
