What does ‘General Event The Dalles’ mean?

If you select ‘General Event The Dalles’ on the registration page, this means that you are confirmed to attend Grow with Google The Dalles.

What if the workshop I’d like to attend isn’t on the registration page or is full?

Unfortunately, this means the workshop is at capacity and we’re unable to take any additional guests for that workshop. If you are unable to register for a particular workshop, but would still like to attend, we recommend choosing ‘General Event The Dalles’ on our registration page. After you check-in at the event, you can wait in the stand-by line for the workshops you’d like to attend. If spots in the workshop open up, we will admit people in the stand-by line on a first-come, first-served basis.

Why can I only sign up for two sessions?

To do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible, we have to limit the number of workshops each individual can sign up for.

After you check-in at the event, you can wait in the stand-by line for the workshops you’d like to attend.
