November 4 - 6, 2019

This year we will be beginning the conference on Monday and running until Wednesday night. Check back closer to the conference for more schedule details.




Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon is the home of this November's Real Life Conference. Connection and comfort are two key elements we are sticking with this year when it comes to location.

Venue | University of Oregon's Historic White Stag Building | 70 NW Couch St, Portland

Hotel | The Hoxton | 15 NW 4th Ave, Portland (4 minute walk from the venue)

Views | Known as the city of bridges for the 12 beautiful arches that stretch across the Willamette river which runs through the center of town.

Getting Here | This year we are stepping up accessibility. The Portland airport is easy to navigate and it's carpet is so famous you can't leave with out taking a picture of your feet standing on it. Light rail runs from the airport to the venue so there will be no need to rent a car and ride sharing apps are always an option.

No matter what it is you’d like to be, do, eat or drink — even if you’ve never tried it before — You Can, in Portland.




How many tickets are available?
We want to keep the conference intimate, and will be limiting ticket sales to 150 tickets. All of our speakers also attend the conference and we hope to bring several women to the conference as part of our give back initiative as well. 

What topics will the speakers be presenting?
In year four of the conference, we are going to continue to focus on presenting a really balanced program. Our speakers will be addressing creativity, business, process, and social advocacy. 

What if I purchase a ticket and can't make it? 
The tickets are non-refundable, however, you can transfer your ticket to another attendee. Unless we have a waiting list, It will be your responsibility to find someone to take the ticket. There will be a $40 USD fee applied to any ticket transfers.

Do I have to pay the full amount at once?
You can pay in full, or select the payment plan option. 

How does the payment plan option work?
You make a Deposit of $275 USD plus 4 Installments of the remaining balance billed on the first of the month in January, March, May and July. If you begin your payment plan after this time you will be billed every other month. Final payment is due 30 days before the event.

What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept Visa and PayPal. 

Can you help me find someone to share a room with? 
Once you purchase your ticket you will be added to our attendee and alumni Facebook group, it's the perfect place to find a roommate, or a lift from the airport. 

I see that lunch is included, but I can't eat wheat/dairy/nuts/shellfish/etc.
We'll be sending out a questionnaire later on to take care of any of you with dietary restrictions!
