Frequently Asked Questions

Where and when is Convo 2017?
We’re glad you asked! Convo will take place October 26–28, 2017 at the Wyndham Grand Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.

Why should I attend?
Invest in yourself, rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in education, and plan to leave inspired and rejuvenated! Convo is an event that every Kadelpian should experience at least once—if not every time. Check out some of the highlights from Convo 2015 by clicking here.

What is the cost to attend?
Pricing varies depending on your role and when you sign up. Please visit the Registration page for fees and more information.

Are there any scholarships available to attend?
Yes. To assist with expenses, we have awarded 4 travel stipends of $750 each to active graduate student members. Applications were accepted through July 31, with recipients notified by Friday, August 11. Unfortunately, no additional scholarships are available to support #KDPconvo17 attendance.

Where can I submit a presentation proposal?
The online submission system closed February 15. You can learn more about the various learning formats by clicking here.

When should I register?
Online registration opened April 1. You’ll want to register by August 31 to ensure you receive the lowest rate. However, online registration will be open until October 10. After that date, you must register onsite in Pittsburgh, PA.

What is the dress code for attendees?
Dress is business casual, with the exception of the closing banquet on October 28. The banquet is semi-formal.

What is the cost for a guest room at the Wyndham Grand Downtown?
Guest rooms are available at a discounted KDP rate of $149 per night, double occupancy. We have a limited number of rooms, so please do not delay in making your reservation. Book your room at the Wyndham Grand online by selecting Attendee or by calling 412-391-4600 and mentioning that you are with the KDP conference. Reservations must be made by September 30, 2017 to ensure the special $149 rate.

Yes, you can learn more about ground transportation options on our Hotel & Travel page.

Will there be any free time at Convo?
Yes! The last round of workshops on Friday, October 27, ends at 5:15 p.m., and after that, you’re free to explore Pittsburgh! Check out some things to do in Pittsburgh by clicking here.

I need to sign up to be a Business Meeting delegate. How do I do that?
There is no longer a formal Business Meeting at Convo. Instead, there will be a Town Hall session where KDP leaders will speak about their efforts on behalf of the Society and answer members’ questions. This change was decided during the Convo 2015 Business Meeting, where delegates of the voting membership altered the KDP Constitution & Bylaws so that any future proposed changes to the Constitution & Bylaws would be sent electronically to all active members. With KDP members all over the world, it is important to include all voices in important decisions impacting the Society.

Can I be a conference sponsor or exhibit?
Yes! Many sponsorship options are available. Head to the Exhibit page to learn more.

My question isn’t listed. Who should I contact?
Please send your question to Tina Paris, Event & Executive Coordinator, at tina@kdp.org or call the Headquarters Office at (800) 284-3167.
