Additional Info: Due to popularity causing tickets to sell out too quickly, CM Van uses a waitlist as a registration system (please register only once) from which they randomly award tickets using a lottery system. Anyone can attend. 

If you cannot use your ticket, please inform Creative Mornings ASAP so they can allocate the ticket to individuals on waitlist. Remaining applicants will remain on the waitlist and be informed if a ticket becomes available. Anyone who hasn’t checked in by 8:45am on morning of the event forfeits their tickets. For more information see the Creative Mornings Vancouver website.
