Due to high demand, general registration is sold out. If you weren’t able to secure a spot at GHC 17, 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 18,000 in 2017— 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.

We sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm for GHC and your commitment to women in technology. We hope to see you next year.

But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the exciting action happening in Orlando. We will stream all keynotes. 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 events.

We’re excited to once again return to Orlando, FL where we celebrated 10 years ago! GHC 17 will be at the Orange County Convention Center. Curious about the convention center and the area around it?

Planning to visit Walt Disney World while you’re in Orlando for the Grace Hopper Celebration? GHC 17 attendees get special access to deeply discounted evening-entry tickets good for admission after 5 p.m. — perfect for visiting the theme parks on Wednesday or Thursday after sessions end. Visit Disney’s dedicated Grace Hopper Celebration group ticketing page (new tab) for more details, or to purchase full-day passes at normal rates for the days before and after the celebration. We recommend checking Walt Disney World’s calendar for any special events and closing times for the evenings you want to spend there.
