  1. Hey Joe, Not sure the best person to contact but I can’t find a way to purchase an extra party/dinner ticket for conference. I registered forever ago and didn’t know if my husband could come so I didn’t purchase his ticket with my registration. Thanks for your help. Deidra Clark

    1. I think once Eventbrite has completed your order we can’t change it from there, but look for a Square invoice in your inbox. Thanks for saying something!
