Group Registration allows you to register more than one person at one time with a single transaction. Each person is considered their own registrant. This feature is most commonly used where invitees will likely pay for colleagues with an organization's credit card. 

Please note: The entire group must register at one time. Every registrant in the group registration must have email domains from the same organization and personal email addresses (like gmail) cannot be used. When registering your sixth member, please use discount code GROUPB5GO in the discount code field on the additional attendee page. This code will not work until you have successfully registered five other members of your team. This code can be used on full-Conference passes only, it cannot be used on All-Access, VIP or Blackbaud University Day passes.

Breakfast will be available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. Lunch will be provided for Blackbaud University Day attendees on Monday.
