Registration Options

Field Trip: Wild Animal Sanctuary:

Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh My! This year for CppCon 2023, the field trip will visit the amazing and unique Wild Animal Sanctuary (TWAS) in nearby Keenesburg, Colorado. Established in 1980, TWAS is a state and federally licensed zoological facility and nonprofit organization. The educational facility is located outside of Keenesburg, Colorado, 30 miles northeast of Denver, on 1,214 acres of rural, rolling grasslands, sheltering more than 750 large carnivores! The field trip will be held on Sunday, the 1st and is an excellent way to get acquainted with fellow attendees and get a unique taste of the Denver experience.

Conference “Meet the Presenters” Banquet:

Join this year’s presenters (of classes, and sessions) for a banquet on the evening of October 5th. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to dine with conference presenters at an informal, yet lavish setting. The food and ambiance will be almost as special as the conversation. This is an add-on for conference registrations that don’t include it.
