What are this year’s conference dates?

Viewpoint’s Collaborate 2018 will be held from October 15 – 18, 2018 in beautiful Portland, Oregon. The full conference agenda begins the morning of Tuesday, October 16, but pre-conference labs begin on Sunday, October 14.


How much does Collaborate cost?

A full conference pass is $1,495, but you’ll save $200 ($1,295) if you register by July 31. At this time, we don’t offer single day passes or group discounts.


What are the acceptable methods of payment?

We accept credit card payments (MasterCard, Visa or American Express).


What is included in registration?

All scheduled events and meals are included with our event registration, as well as a Trimet Pass which enables complimentary transportation to/from the Oregon Convention Center via Portland MAX Light Rail. There is also the opportunity to earn up to 16.5 CPE credits (more if you add on a pre-conference lab!).


I have special dietary restrictions/a severe allergy. Is there someone I can contact about my needs?

We will have a wide variety of food options available, including vegetarian choices. If you have additional needs, please email us at events@viewpoint.com.


Will I need a printed ticket for the event?

We do not provide printed tickets. When you arrive to the Oregon Convention Center, or one of the conference hotels during registration hours, you will check in by providing your name at the kiosk or desk.


Are flight and hotel expenses included?

No. Attendees are responsible for all travel, lodging, transportation and incidental expenses. We do, however, offer discounted hotel rates and room blocks (until sold out) at three area hotels along with corporate car rental rates.


Do the hotel blocks sell out?

Yes! Nearly every year our hotel blocks sell out, often before the cut-off date for the room block discount. Please be sure to book early to ensure that you are staying in a central location, at a discounted rate and near other event attendees.

Are there any registration restrictions?

Registration for Viewpoint Collaborate is limited to current product users, invited prospects and partners. Representatives of companies with products that compete with Viewpoint products and services are prohibited from attending. All registrations are subject to approval and Viewpoint, in its sole discretion reserves the right to deny or cancel any registration for any reason. Cancelled registrations at our discretion will have their event registration fee refunded. No refunds will be made for travel, room or any other direct or indirect expenses.


How and when do I choose the sessions I want to attend?

You can select the sessions you’re most interested in attending when you register, or you can select them at a later date. Some of our most popular sessions are added on after registration opens, but space also fills quickly. Your best bet is to register for sessions soon after you register, but revisit ahead of the show—maybe when you download the mobile app, a month ahead of the show. Registration changes can be made within the app.
