Question: How do I reserve my guest room at the hotel?

room with the hotel online online using a link our team will provide you
after you register for he conference. This link will provide you with our special conference
rate of $169 (through May 22, 2013) and will secure your room under our
conference room block.
Question: Do I have to commit to attending one track or can I choose what I want to attend session by session?
Answer: We ask that you register for specific sessions for this year's conference, and we provide a attendee portal on this website for you to manage your breakout session selections. Though we strongly suggest you attend the session you pre-selected prior to the conference, movement between sessions in permitted provided there is an available seat in the session. Note: This ability to move freely between sessions does not apply to hands on workshops. See the question below for more information.
Question: Why do you charge extra for some sessions?
Answer: Scaling New Heights 2013 will provide selected sessions as hands-on workshops with limited seating. Registration for these workshops will opened December 1, 2012.
First, we are charging a fee for these events because of the enhanced learning experience these workshops offer. The hands-on exercises and typically smaller instructor to student ration provides provides an extremely effective learning environment and better retention of the material covered.
Second, these hands on events are much more costly to administrate and require additional audio/visual equipment and services. Also, the much lower instructor to attendee ratio increases our average costs per participant. So, for the most part your additional registration investment compensates us for these additional expenses. For this reason, workshops are not eligible for any type of discount (e.g. early registration discounts, group registration discounts or National Advisor Network discounts).
Question: Why do you not offer early registration discounts, group discounts or National Advisor Network discounts on workshop registrations?
Answer: See the answer to the question above.
Question: Why is this conference so focused on Intuit software?
Answer: First: There are numerous organizations in the country that do excellent general accounting technology shows. Scaling New Heights is primarily an in-depth technical training conference designed to equip professionals to provide new (or expanded) consulting services. (Note: The conference does have an exhibition floor and offers bonus sessions called "Power Breakfasts" on a wide range of Intuit-integrated applications.) By covering fewer applications during our general sessions and breakout sessions we have more time to dedicate to each product. That allows us to make the sessions more comprehensive, in-depth, and practical. Second: Many Intuit Premier Resellers and most QuickBooks ProAdvisors make Intuit products a primary (of not sole) focus of their technology consulting. We designed this conference to be as applicable to your practice as possible.
Question: Do the QuickBooks sessions at this conference prepare ProAdvisors to take either the ProAdvisor certification exam or the Advanced ProAdvisor certification exam?
Answer: We offer a track for QuickBooks ProAdvisor certification exam preparation and QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions certification exam preparation. For Advanced ProAdvisor certification exam preparation many of the concepts we teach at Scaling New Heights are addressed by the Advanced ProAdvisor Certification exams. However, our courses on QuickBooks are not designed specifically to help you pass these exams and as such many of the technical concepts covered by these exams are not included in the conference sessions. Instead, the QuickBooks courses are designed to empower you to consult more effectively on QuickBooks and any overlap in content with Advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor certification exam on QuickBooks is incidental. To fully prepare for this certification we encourage you to leverage the web-based, on-demand courses available from Intuit - through your course locker at www.qbadvisor.com.
