How far is the airport from the facility?
The Orlando Airport is a 20 minute drive from the Rosen Plaza.
Can my spouse come to the conference with me?
Yes. Discount rates are available for spouses of full-paying registrants. A spouse may attend all of the classroom sessions and observe the small group sessions. Spouses do not give speeches or participate in the small group process. The cost for a spouse (including food) is $599.
Will my spouse and I have any free time and what is there to do?
Our workshop schedule is very full. Unfortunately, there is very little free time. Meals and some of the afternoon on the third day are about all the free time there is.
Do I have to stay on-site?
We strongly recommend you stay on site. The Rosen Plaza has given us an excellent rate of $114 per night. Our workshop schedule is very full and it will be difficult for you to fully participate and stay off-site.
If I need to arrive early to the conference, can I stay the night before at the facility?
This is completely dependent upon the hotel's availability. Once you register, you will make your own reservations through a website set up specifically for SCORRETM Conference attendees. The conference room rate will be available for several days before and after the conference in the instance you decide to come early or stay late.
What are the directions to the facility?
Directions are provided with your registration confirmation.
What time should I book my flight to arrive at the airport?
We suggest you book your flights to arrive by 2 pm. Registration begins at 3 pm and dinner will be served at 5 pm.
When should I book my flight to depart?
We suggest that you book your flight from the Orlando Airport to depart after 1:00 pm.
What if I can't make it to the conference until the first morning?
While we encourage you to do everything you possibly can to be with us for the beginning of the conference, we understand that sometimes life gets in the way. Generally you can miss the first evening and still be able to catch up. But if you miss the first morning classroom sessions, you will likely be lost the rest of the week. We would rather have you attend a future conference.

What is the difference between the SCORRETM Conference and the LAUNCH Conference?
At the LAUNCH Conference, we teach you the business and marketing side of making a career as a speaker or entertainer. At the SCORRETM Conference we work on the actual preparation & presentation of your speeches. The ultimate experience would be to attend both.
We are so confident in our conferences that we offer a money back guarantee. If you attend the conference and at any time before it's over determine that we haven't delivered as promised, we will promptly refund your money. No problem. No questions asked. You have our word on it.
