Are there hotels nearby?

Yes! We encourage you to check out the following nearby hotels:


Is child care provided?

We will have a parents room for mums and their babies with a livestream in the room – so no moment of the conference has to be missed!

There will not be Slate Kids programming at the event. We would love for mums to be able to enjoy every minute of the conference and be fully present! We encourage you to look for childcare.


Is there an age cutoff?

Elle Conference is for all ages! If you have a young teen that would like to sit in on the sessions, they are more than welcome to purchase a ticket and attend – we’d love to have them!


Is there a youth price?

There is only general admission pricing for this event.


Do I need to bring anything?

We recommend you bring cash or credit for parking and conference merchandise!


Can I get a refund if I can’t make it?

Unfortunately, tickets for Elle Conference are non-refundable.


Is there one day only pricing?

Elle Conference is a full weekend event and our hope is that you are able to attend both the Friday and Saturday experiences. There are no partial registrations – just one price for the whole weekend.
