Pre-Registration for Hands-On Training Sessions

As a Tableau Conference 2017 attendee, you have the opportunity to secure your spot in any of our Hands-On Training (HOT) sessions. Please note, seating is only reserved for Hands-On Training sessions, not for breakout sessions. If you "fave" a Hands-On Training session by tapping the star in the schedule view, a pop-up will appear to have you confirm that you would like to pre-register for it. "Faving" any other session simply adds that item to the "My Agenda" menu. All sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis except for Hands-On Training, Certification Exams and Training Workshops which you must pre-register for. To see all Hands-On Training sessions, use the filters to search by type.

Every session is in the Schedule by day and time. Browse the punny titles and tap into the session for a detailed description. Pre-register for Hands-On Training sessions by tapping the star on the left (registration is required to secure a spot). HOT sessions can be spotted with the icon “register” or “almost full” to track capacity status. Favoriting either HOT or breakout sessions adds them to “My Agenda” for you to refer to during the event. Pro-tip: Session rooms will be added closer to the event date. Once the room is added, take it a step further by exporting the session to your personal calendar.

Pre-Registering for Hands-On Training Sessions

Secure your spot in a Hands-On Training session by tapping the fave star in the schedule view or session detail for a session that has a green "Register" or yellow “Almost Full” label. Sessions with red “Standby Only” are available for all HOT sessions on a first come, first serve basis. Only one HOT session registration is allowed per time slot. Once you have tapped the star, you'll be prompted to confirm your registration.

When can I pre-register?

As soon as you download the app or login to the web app, if space is available. If space is not available and the session is full, you will be directed to the standby line if you wish to try to attend.

What does pre-register mean?

If you're pre-registered for a session, your spot will be held in that session until five minutes before the listed start time. If you have not arrived by that time, your spot may be given away to an attendee in the standby line.

Can I pre-register more than once per time slot?

No, you're not able to pre-register for multiple Hands-On Training sessions in a given time slot, or any overlapping time slots.
