FAQs Registration types When you click “REGISTER” you will have two choices for registration types: Individual Selecting "INDIVIDUAL" registration you will be able to register a maximum of two (2) registrations. Designers will be able to register a maximum of two (2) registrations. Group Selecting "GROUP" registration you will be able to register a minimum of two (2) and a maximum of eight (8) for a named group. For more than 8 registrations, simply return, register and create another similarly named group (ex: Johnny Appleseed Grp_Table 2, 3, 4, etc).  See Group registration details below.  RSVP and Ticket types After selecting "REGISTER" you make your RSVP/Ticket type selection: General or Individual RSVP - you are not a sponsor or the guest of a sponsor, and you are not a designer for FOT  Sponsor RSVP - you, or a sponsor hosting a table, have already signed up previously for a specific sponsorship level, or you are registering as an invited guest by one of the sponsors Designer RSVP - you are an approved/registered designer for FOT GSN Donation - you are making an end of the year donation to support the work of GSN How can I register with a group/table? Someone (the buyer who becomes the group manager) from your organization/group must create a "named" group (ex: Johnny Appleseed Grp_Table 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). Anyone will then be able to search for the name of the created group in order to register. Be sure the group name is the correct one since you will be seated according to that sign-up. Group registration details  Named Groups are managed by the organization/group manager (the person who created the group). The group manager will be able to see who signed up for the group and they will be able to invite others and communicate with group members. Selecting “GROUP” registration can be used for creating your own “table” as general public/individuals (max 8 per table) interested in being seated together.  Selecting "GROUP" registration will be required for ALL sponsorship RSVP/registrations, and if you were invited by the sponsor. Group Managers - (including General Group Managers and Sponsored Guest/Group Managers) – are those who create a named group. Once you create a named group and you register, you will be able to invite others to register with your named group (via a button/link) at any time, until you reach the maximum number of registrations allowed (8/per table/group). Calculating Group Registration At Check Out - If you order/register for a pre-existing named group it will automatically calculate the number of remaining registrations left for that group/table (8/per table/group). Selecting “checkout” will not work until you select/adjust for the correct number of remaining registrations available for that table/group. When you select the number of people in your group – you will be able to register each person as part of a named group. A named group will be able to be seated together at one table (max 8 per table). (ex: Johnny Appleseed Grp_Table 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) All Reservations/Groups with less than 8 will be included in mixed registrations/tables due to space and seating limitations. Payment After choosing "Tickets” and then “Checkout,” attendees choose their payment method and complete the registration process. Online (PayPal) Use your personal credit/debit card or PayPal account. This is the default for immediate payment. Simply select “PayPal Account” or select “PayPal Guest Checkout.”  Offline (Check/Invoice) At the bottom of the check-out page simply select “show” under “Other payment options” for “Check" or "Invoice” payment.

Sponsorship RSVPs (due to site limitations) will not have access to additional purchases since they are considered FREE reservations by the site.
