Our registration fees don't approach covering the costs of producing our conference. Renting the conference facilities in Manhattan, maintaining a complex website, promoting the event, producing the 100 page program guide, providing audio/video equipment, coordinating hundreds of volunteers and up to 1,400 speakers -- all require funds that we rely entirely on you for. Contributions are tax-deductible.
