There are several conferences for homeschoolers. The Great Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati is the largest in the Midwest. These tips are based on experiences there, and may not apply to all conventions.
- Buy your tickets in advance.
You can get discount tickets online up until 2 days before the convention starts. The prices increase at the door, and you might not get into some of the special speakers you wanted to hear. Also, if you plan on the children attending the Children's Conference, you will want to book as soon as these become available.
- Ask for a parking discount.
Usually, there is a parking lot offering discounts near the convention. This could even be free. Always worth asking for a discount. They sometimes post this information on the convention website.
