Thank you for registering for Overland Expo 2016 EAST! We are looking forward to another great Expo, this year at the Biltmore!
TO DO now:
- Check your email for a receipt and registration record.
- Make sure your payment has processed.
- Save our email (firstname.lastname@example.org) in your contacts. We will be sending additional material for your attendance to your registered email.
REGISTERING FOR INDIVIDUAL COURSES
We have 140+ classes, slideshows, demos, and other programs (over 310 session-hours) for you to choose from . . . get ready for a fun weekend!
- DOWNLOAD the Program Guide (link to PDF provided below) and READ THE INSTRUCTIONS on pages 4-5 before proceeding.
- READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS carefully. Take your time– it’s complicated and this will help you (and us!) a lot.
- SELECT YOUR CLASSES. There are course descriptions and instructor bios. A printable worksheet is provided (worksheet and schedule are at end of Program Guide) to help you select and fill out your class choices. Most classes are offered more than once during the weekend to help you schedule around conflicting choices.
- SIGN UP FOR CLASSES USING THE ONLINE SERVICE. The LINK is in the instructions (again, read all) in the Program Guide. Proceed to the online signup service. You will be able to manage your own schedule with a password of your choosing.
A FEW NOTES:
- The online service system is not optimized for iOS / tablet devices; it’s best to use a desktop computer.
- Wait lists will be maintained automatically. You will receive notification by email if your status changes from wait list to confirmed.
- DOUBLE REGISTRATIONS (two people / one vehicle or two motos): you must register each person separately for their classes, with different emails. (The system won't allow same-email registrations, sorry.)
- Some of you registered for double but did not provide the second person’s email, so they have not received anything. If you did not provide us with an email for your partner, you must forward them this email and instructions.
BRING YOUR FINAL SCHEDULE WITH YOU. Don’t forget to PRINT or DOWNLOAD your schedule and bring it to the show! (We will not have copies available for you.)
