    tldr; TMC Connect even registration is open for those that pre-registered. tmc-connect.com



    We are excited to announce that registration for TMC Connect 2014 is now live. If you pre-registered, you now have 48 hour early access to register for the conference as well as book your hotel rooms for the weekend.

    This year, TMC Connect will take place at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Spa in beautiful Monterey, California. A true destination location, Monterey provides TMC Connect attendees with the opportunity to experience a wide variety of iconic, summer activities. World renowned Pebble Beach, 17-Mile Drive and the Monterey Bay Aquarium are just minutes away. Furthermore the Hyatt lies less than 10 miles from Mazda Raceway Leguna Seca where REFUEL will be held on Sunday of the conference weekend. We have secured a group rate of $199 per night at the hotel for event attendees, which is a very competitive rate for a summer weekend in Monterey.

    The event will kick off with a Friday evening reception and mixer at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Spa. On Saturday, the conference will consist of a keynote address, breakout sessions, lunch time topic tables, special presentations, an expo, and other surprises. There will be talks and presentations from industry experts and community members on an array of Tesla and EV related topics. On Sunday, the fun continues with breakfast at the hotel before heading over to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, where the EV performance driving event REFUEL will take place.

    The cost for the event is $400 for the conference weekend. This includes admission to the Friday reception, the entire Saturday Conference, and Sunday breakfast. Your conference badge also grants you spectator access to REFUEL as well as the option to participate in an EV Parade lap on the track. (Registration for additional performance events such as autocross and track time trials will be handled separately through REFUEL.) Those who only wish to go to the Saturday Conference can purchase a single day access pass for $350. Admission to just the Friday reception is $80 and if you want to buy family or friends breakfast on Sunday, it is $35 per person. These are early bird prices available for a limited time; prices will increase closer to the event.

    Of course, this event would not be possible if it were not for the generous contributions from the people who support TMC and TMC Connect. If you wish to further contribute to this event and the community, you can become a Supporter for $1000 or a Patron for $2000. Supporters and Patrons are automatically given full conference weekend access which includes admission to the Friday reception, Saturday conference, Sunday breakfast, and REFUEL. Additionally, Supporters and Patrons will be granted priority seating at the conference talks, an honorable mentions in the written program, and a thank you gift for their contributions.

    We are ecstatic about the positive reception that the community has had for our TMC events. We had a large number of people pre-register for this year’s users conference, and there are a limited number of spaces available, so register now to secure your access pass and hotel reservation.

    Registration is now live here: https://www.teslamotorsclub.com/connect/registration/

    Can you confirm that supporters get VIP lounge access? The TMC posting states they do but the online description at registration only mentions VIP lounge access in the Patron description

    Sorry, let me fix that. Was trying too hard to condense the description. VIP lounge is for Patrons.

    Password reset may be broken. I got the link to reset the password, but it actually didn't. No worries, I found my original password, but just an FYI.

    How do you get in if you did not pre-register? I tried my TMC password and that did not work.

    Those that pre-registered are able to register right now. I believe it will open for general registration after 48 hours.

    bonnie/doug--never got an original e-mail with password. Cannot log into registration now. Password reset does not work--loops back to log-in for registration. Any ideas?

    Slightly off topic--I assume there will be charging infrastructure set up @ the hotel as done last year. Might also need an 'air traffic controller' at the Gilroy superchargers...gonna be busy!!!

    Interested in both Connect and REFUEL, but my wife's expecting our first child in September. If we end up not being able to go due to some unforeseen event, are the tickets transferable?

    Clarification: The email has "Recieved" not "Received" in the title.
    Observation: The follow-up link (where it asks for that password) also has that typo.

    :)

    I'm sure you knew it was coming but I have to ask (as a Signature owner):

    Is the Patron gift a superset of the Supporter gift? If not...
    (1) Might some consider the Supporter gift better than the Patron gift?
    (2) Is there a way to get both?

    Also, regarding the separate registration with Laguna Seca: Will TMC inform us first where to get started or should we individually or as a group contact them now to start that discussion? Thanks.

    I registered this morning, but didn't get confirmation email. How long did it take you to get email response? (My hotel confirmation was instantaneous).

    I got both confirmations (event and hotel) within 5 minutes.

    In case it helps, the title for the event mail was "TMC Connect 2014 Registration Confirmation‏" (from [email protected]). It had a link for the hotel registration at the rate doug described.
