An invitation will go out to our ministry partners inviting them to secure their table in the exhibit hall.


Hotel accommodations are not included in the registration fees. If you live outside of the Bay Area, you may want to get a hotel and we have a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn in Walnut Creek, approximately 5 miles from the church. The block for all 3 days will be held open until March 27, 2023, so reserve your space (and reduced price) as soon as possible. Click here to reserve a room.
