Our Collaborative Conference is being held May 18, 19 and 20th at the Pasea Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, California. It is the premier event of its kind to happen in Southern California.

The price is $1475 and includes all classes and workshops, access to vendors and speakers, private vendor expo, access to all giveaways, personal event app for your smartphone, access to all private online groups and more. There are up to $500 in discounts off that price.

If you stay at the Pasea Hotel for the event, during Early Bird registration, we are including one night of your stay as part of your registration fee. For the remaining nights, we have bee granted very special discount rates for our registered students (approx $100-$200/night off of the retail rate or about $279/night for budgeting purposes).

The venue hotel does not have enough rooms for all the students, so they will sell out on a first come, first served basis. This is a big reason to register as soon as possible (and save the time and cost of transportation to and from classes every day!) Everything will be taken care of.

Just give your credit card to the hotel on check-in and you will pay for your stay (less the one night per above) when you leave. 

For students sharing a room, indicate that, yes, you want a room on the Registration form and just put the name of the person you want to share with in the “notes/suggestions” box at the bottom of the Registration form.

Upon completion, you will receive our BellyBabyBeyond Guide with Speaker Tips and Vendor Discounts.
You will be given a hotel room (with one night free) as long as there are rooms still available at the venue hotel unless you opt out during regsitration..

 Fill out the brief registration form on this site, and we will be in contact with you with details and pricing information.

We have released the first 12+ Speakers and the Topics here on this site. More speakers will be added very soon.

After the final Speaker is added to the roster this Fall, we will send out an email to those already registered students to let them know they can choose their classes.

The early bird students that pre-registered back in June will be notified first.

We are providing childcare for an additional fee. This is the only additional expense for the entire event. Fees will be listed when class registration opens up. If you are nursing, there will be private nursing stations available.

When you register for the event, you will automatically be assigned a room unless you opt out when you fill out the Registration form when you purchase a seat for the conference.  The room is completely refundable up until a month prior to the event.

The Pasea cannot accommodate all the students so it is important you register as soon as possible and avoid having to drive to and from classes every day. Note, if you are sharing a room, still indicate that you want a room, but make sure you put the name of the person you are sharing with (or that you would prefer to share with someone) in the “notes/suggestion” box at the bottom of the Registration form.

We can’t guarantee that everyone who wants to share will be matched up with someone, but you will be able to post your wishes on the Facebook Belly Baby Beyond attendee group between now and the event.

When you show up to the event, you just need to give the hotel your credit card. Then when youcheck out, you will be charged for your stay (less the one night per above) along with incidentals.

We will be providing additional Hotel information for the surrounding area on this website. Unfortunately, only the Pasea will be offering discounts for our event, so register soon!

We will have complimentary twice daily snack sessions every day of the event. For regular meals the students are directed to the fabulous hotel restaurant or the adjoining eateries and food court in the adjacent shopping mall just steps away from the hotel.

Sorry no. But it’s an amazing Hotel with a wonderful lounge areas – including a rooftop bar (21 and over), and you are welcome to buy your own!

Wifi is provided in your Pasea Hotel room as part of your resort fee and in the vendor expo areas as well as all the hotel common areas. Cell service is “a couple bars or better” throughout the hotel grounds. Wifi will not be available in the classrooms. If you are staying in another Hotel, wifi is not included.

NO! Our Vendor area is available in the evening for students to shop after classes. So there’s no reason to slip out and miss any of the good stuff you paid for.

Except for childcare (estimated at $15/hr), taxis to/from the airport or hotel parking (if you rent a car), there are no other costs for the event. 

Due to the limited nature of availability there are no refunds. If you can’t make it you can sell your seat in any of our social media platforms.
