where is all the basic info like parking?

Our conference app has everything you need, conveniently organized on the home screen. You'll need to be a registered attendee to gain access to the app. Once that's done, download Whova and log in using the same email you registered with. 

Are the discounted hotel rooms gone?

Our discount expires on 12/19/19. Until then, you can call either hotel to check on availablity under the code "CHC" or ask about the cat hustler conference. As of this posting (12/13), there are ten rooms available at Homewood Suites and none at Embassy suites. The hotel's sales manager has agreed to add more discounted rooms to Embassy Suites once the Homewood rooms are booked. You'll have to call and see where they stand. 

Will there be a live stream of sessions?

Yes! Speakers are free to stream or record their sessions and make them available during or after the conference. If there's one you've got your eye on, reach out to the speaker directly to see what their plans are.


As much as we wanted to offer replays as a feature of the conference, the budget just doesn't allow for the necessary AV & digital infrastructure

Since we're using the Whova app instead of a printed program, speakers also have the option to upload their slides and handouts for registrants to access later.

are you accepting vendors?

Due to space, exhibitor booths are limited to sponsors and speakers.  

Can I come to the pre/afterparty if I didn't register for the conference?

All three parties are currently for conference registrants only. We're exploring the option of a separate ticket. Stay tuned. 

Do you need volunteers? 

Yes! We need:​

  • A moderator for two sessions Saturday morning

  • A moderator for two sessions Sunday afternoon

Email Julia at thecathustler@gmail.com for details. 

can i buy a swag bag? 

Extra Acatemy totes (empty) will be available in our on-site shop, but we won't be selling the sponsored/donated contents for ethical reasons. We may do a raffle or accept donations for extra bags instead. 

Yes, and it's short. Email thecathustler@gmail.com to have your name put on it. 

Is there a waiting list for the cat CPR/First Aid class?

I can't attend and the refund period has ended. Can I transfer my ticket? 

Sure can! Follow the instructions here.
