SITE SoCal Holiday Event General Registration Pricing:
|$50||Give Back Get Back Ticket|
|$75||Sponsored Planner Breakfast Ticket|
|$250||Supplier Single Seat Luncheon Ticket - SITE Members Only|
Reception Vendor Tables & Sailing Regatta are all sold out
As a planner, you may be receiving invitations from table hosts to join them at their luncheon tables. Once you have received an invitation, you will be able to register for the event. Registration opens up at 10:00 AM on October 4, 2018.
During the registration process you will be asked for table-host code for the Luncheon. This will confirm that you have a place at the event. You will also be given the opportunity to purchase Give Back Get Back tickets, sign up for the 5K, and request accommodation during registration. Hotel reservation confirmations will be sent out in the month of November. Please note that guestrooms are limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
If you are a planner who has not received an invitation from a table host, but who would like the opportunity to attend, we offer a “match-me” service. In prior years, planners chose “match-me” as an option during registration. This is the same process as last year.
If you are a planner and would like to be considered for an invitation, please register your interest. This list will be circulated to table hosts who are looking for planners to join them at the Holiday Event. Once a host has chosen a planner, they will contact that planner directly to invite them to register and the process is as described in “INVITED PLANNERS” above.
All suppliers must register during general registration, even those that have purchased a table or other items during phase 1 registration. Single seat tickets for the luncheon will be available for SITE Members Only - this quantity is limited and membership will be verified. Tickets for the Sponsored Planner Breakfast on Tuesday will also be available for purchase.
Suppliers: Don't forget to book your hotel.

Give Back Get Back Event
In years past at the Give Back Get Back event, we’ve focused so much on the “get back” that we feel we need to shift our focus back to what the Holiday Event is all about, our three charities. In addition to raising money, we will be creating a hands on experience to give back to each individual charity and we’ve initiated a drive to benefit items in need.
Please join us in bringing any of the below items to the Give Back Get Back event on Monday, December 10th.
Bracken’s Kitchen – compostable plates, paper towels, drink cups, cleaning rags, dish soap, gas cards, copy paper, plastic forks and spoons, bulk items from Costco and Smart & Final such as black beans, pinto beans, canned diced tomatoes, canola oil, chicken base, chili powder, diced tomatoes, fusilli pasta, granulated garlic, olive oil, penne pasta, salt, sugar, tomato sauce, ground black pepper, ground white pepper and dried parsley.
CARMA – dog harnesses and leashes, dog and cat collars, new or gently used dog and cat toys and pet supplies, dog and cat beds, puppy pads, Breeders Edge Foster Powered Milk Replacer, Purina Pro Plan Chicken & Rice Dry, Earthbath Wipes
