MAIN CONFERENCE ONLY: $2800
Here’s what’s included with the Main Conference Registration
You can take a look at the actual agenda to see the rundown of the days. Basically the main sessions and Deep Dives will be going on all day Tuesday and Wednesday and we will have sessions until around noon on Thursday.
For those of you who are new to #WLPC the day is broken down into the following “blocks”
The different length presentations happen scattered throughout each day.
The Deep Dives happen Tuesday and Wednesday evenings after a day of presentations.
You will be in the same Deep Dive you signed up for at registration both nights. Each Deep Dive takes both days and there are specific kits pre-purchased for you ahead of time, so there is no switching Deep Dives.
Both Tuesday and Wednesday nights, after conference officially ends for the day, we have opened up the facility to allow different vendors to host their own sessions. These are a chance to see what’s new with the vendors. They always include free food and drinks and a lot of “bonus knowledge”. They are free to attend and not required, but always a lot of fun. We will be announcing all the the vendor sessions at the conference and letting you know exactly where they are happening and when.
Beyond the vendor sessions there are always some other fun actives. In the past we’ve had a retro game room, lego master build room, and a pub quiz night. Watch for more details coming as we draw closer to the actual event.
Usually there are a variety of fun events, Be sure to check the schedule as more details will be added as we get closer the #WLPC. Past early morning events have been:

All conference activities as well as sleeping accommodations are all happening at the:
Hilton Phoenix Resort at the Peak
7677 N 16th St, Phoenix, AZ 85020
From the Resort’s website:
“Nestled near the Phoenix Mountain Preserve, Hilton Phoenix Resort at the Peak (formerly Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort) is conveniently located near downtown Phoenix & Scottsdale and 20 minutes (10 miles) from Sky Harbor International Airport. The resort features all-suite accommodations with 224 remastered Agave Suites at North Pointe. Resort amenities include a four-acre waterpark, a kid’s camp, a full-service spa and fitness center, three delicious restaurants and 48,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meeting space.”
Your hotel room will “officially” be available after 4 pm. So, please plan accordingly. If you arrive before 4 pm, the hotel will gladly hold on to your luggage as they prepare your room. There are several on site restaurants, as well as a wonderful pool area where you can relax and enjoy yourself.
If you’re flying in, you’ll want to fly into the Phoenix Sky Harbor Int’l Airport.
There is NO SHUTTLE SERVICE provided by either the hotel or #WLPC to/from the hotel.
As of the time of this writing Uber & Lyft were still available to/from the airport, taxis are for sure readily available. Public transportation is not a good option.
You are more than welcome to rent a car while at the conference, but you won’t need a car while at the conference.
It’s about a 15 – 20 minute drive between the airport and the hotel (depending on the traffic).
Your Room Check-in: Friday, 3 February starting at 4 pm
Your Room Check-out: Thursday, 9 February 11 am
Your Room Check-in: Monday, 6 February starting at 4 pm
Your Room Check-out: Thursday, 9 February 11 am
If you request additional nights (which will be an option when you register) your check-in, check-out dates will be adjusted accordingly.
If you take a look at the start times above, you’ll notice that everyone arrives the evening before classes/conference actually starts.
When you arrive to the hotel, you are coming the evening before bootcamp/conference starts. We’ve designed it this way so attendee (your) arrival time and the check-in process doesn’t interfere with us being able to start our classes/sessions on time and making the most of our first day together.
Both the night before boot camp and main conference, we will have a table set up in the lobby where we will welcome you, hand you your name badge, and officially “check you in” for boot camp/conference. We will provide you a map of the conference facility including where breakfast will be, your classroom, etc.
BOOT CAMP + MAIN CONFERENCE: $5800
Here’s what’s included with Boot Camp Registration
The schedule is the same for both Saturday & Sunday.
The all day schedule is the same as Saturday and Sunday. The only difference is in the evening, we are not providing you dinner. Instead we will be hosting our evening reception as we welcome the rest of the #WLPC attendees who are joining us for the Main Conference.
