Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When and where is Tethered Together happening?
A: Our second event is scheduled for March 11 – March 14, 2022 at the Hilton Stamford Hotel and Executive Meeting Center in Stamford, CT. We plan to host annually into the foreseeable future and have this space guaranteed to our group for years to come!
Q: What’s the schedule? When does this spectacular rope circus start and end?
A: We’re working on the class grid right now! A general overview can be found here. In brief, classes, meetups and collaborative art installations start the afternoon of Friday and run through Sunday afternoon with parties and special events each night! We’ll say goodbye to friends who can’t stay over a third night at our closing ceremony and then gather again to build a non-hierarchical kinky teaching and learning environment called a Ropenspace. We’ll share, learn and afterparty till that last rope hits the floor in the playspace at the stroke of Midnight Sunday night. Glass slippers may be provided.
Q: How do I register for your event?
A: You’ll need to buy a ticket before the day of the event – they will NOT be available at the door. Tickets are available right here starting 9/1! You’ll have to meet some basic criteria: you’ll need to be at or over the age of 18 on the first day of our event, be fully Covid-19 vaccinated with your card to prove it, and you’ll need to have a valid legal ID physically with you to show us that matches the name on your ticket. If you register for a ticket with a “placeholder” type name, you will either be asked to pay a transfer fee, or the cost difference of the ticket from when you purchased it to when the name change occurred – whichever you prefer. You’ll also need to sign our event liability waiver and conduct policy at the door.
Q: I can’t find my ticket purchase receipt/event confirmation?
A: We are finding out that it’s pretty common for our Eventbee receipts to head to spam or junk folders or, for Gmail users, the promotions tab. Please check there and write us at [email protected] if you can’t find yours and we’ll get you set up!
Q: How do I book a room?
A: Our room block opens 9/01/19 and instructions will be available here at that point! Rooms (king or queen/queen, single through quad occupancy) will be $139 per night plus taxes and fees with a two-night Friday/Saturday minimum and booking details will be handled by our host hotel.
Q: If I’m flying in, how do I get from airport to the hotel and back?
A: The Hilton Stamford Hotel features 60,000 square feet of dedicated event space just for us and is just a 5 minute walk from the Stamford Train Station which connects to the NYC train system. The nearest airport is White Plains (HPN) Airport which is 8.8 miles away. Other nearby airports include New York La Guardia (LGA) (26.1 miles), Islip (ISP) (29.5 miles), New York JFK (JFK) (31.2 miles) and Newark (EWR) (42 miles) so you’ve got travel choices. At this time you should plan to arrange your own ride to and from the airport.
Q: What happens if I have a ticket and then find out I can’t attend the event?
A: We offer ticket refunds and transfers according to the rules outlined in our 2022 Ticketing Policies.
Q: How can I help?
A: We have an open call for both presenters and volunteers for our event! Click those links to head over to our applications! We also have sponsorship opportunities available for individuals and businesses supportive of our mission. Contact us at [email protected] to learn more.
Q: Can two women really run a rope convention?
A: Yes. You are on their website right now. This one is on here as a joke because it’s better to laugh than cry about these things, but yes, we have been asked various versions of this question. The answer is emphatic and obvious and returning March 11 – 14, 2022. We are so excited! You really don’t want to miss it!
