Wear what you will be comfortable in but not casual (i.e. jeans, pajamas, etc). Most attendees in the past have worn some form of Indian wear.
Do we have to purchase the photos?
If Jas or Mandy took photos of your work, a headshot or a candid photo that you would like, you do not have to purchase it. They are providing complimentary photography throughout the conference. After the conference is over they will share a link where you can download the photos you want. So don’t be shy, have them take all the photos of your work and get a headshot while you’re at it!
