What should I bring?

Once on-site, you will want to make sure you have your registration confirmation, picture ID, a printed copy of session handouts, water (bring a bottle and refill it at the water stations), snacks, a sweatshirt (sometimes the rooms get a little cool, especially after some exercise), a yoga mat (for mind/body sessions), a notepad and a pen or pencil and business cards for networking.

Are there places to change and/or shower between classes?

Unfortunately, other than your hotel room, there are no shower facilities available to attendees in the hotel or convention center. Restroom facilities throughout the venue can be used for changing clothes, if needed.

Will handouts be available for event sessions?

Session handouts will not be available at the event. Attendees should print the handouts they need. Session handouts will be available to print at least 2 weeks prior to the event. If you decide to change sessions on-site, session handouts can be found in the event app.

How do I get CECs for the sessions I attend?

Your proof of attendance and CEC credits are on your CEC certificate, which you can access any time after the conference at www.ideafit.com/myeducation. Workouts do not qualify for CECs. They are designed to be just that, a workout. No CEC-able education is associated with them.

Which certification agencies offer CECs for this event?

The credits you can earn at this event are recognized by the following agencies: ACE, ACSM, AFAA, NASM, NESTA and NSCA. If your certification agency is not listed, simply check with the agency to see what credits it allows.

How many CECs can I earn at the event?

You can earn up to 24 CEC hours by attending the full event and even more if you attend the Pre or Post-Event Intensive session. That’s enough credits for your certification renewal! (Please check with your specific certification agency for their renewal criteria).

What do I do if zero credits are assigned to my scheduled session?

CECs are assigned by the certification agency, not IDEA. Certification agencies base credits on the education provided and presenter qualifications. If you would like to attend a different session that is offering CEC credit, simply make the change online to your schedule prior to attending the event, or to make changes to your schedule on-site, visit Attendee Registration.

How many CECs are offered for each session?

Generally, you’ll receive one CEC per contact hour for workshops and lectures. If you attend a 2-hour workshop, you’ll receive up to 2 credit hours. We are in the process of getting approvals from each of the agencies above and will post the credits as soon as they are available so you’ll know exactly how many credits the sessions you are interested in attending are approved for.

Do I get CECs for completing the Pre or Post-Event Intensive?

Yes, at the end of the Intensive session you’ll receive a Certificate of Completion that will include the number of CECs for attending. Make a copy for your records and send a copy to your certification agency.

What is the age you need to be in order to attend/register for the IDEA World Convention?

You need to be at least 18 years old in order to attend IDEA World Convention. In response to attendee requests and to preserve the educational atmosphere of the convention, children under the age of 18 are not allowed in sessions, even to observe.

What is your policy on service animals?

If you require an Emotion Support Animal (ESA) please contact IDEA prior to arriving to the event. IDEA will require current documentation (not more than one year old) on letterhead from a licensed mental health professional stating (1) the attendee has a mental health-related disability listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV); (2) having the animal accompany the attendee is necessary to the attendee’s mental health or treatment; (3) the individual providing the assessment of the attendee is a licensed mental health professional and the attendee is under his/her professional care; and (4) the date and type of the mental health professional’s license and the state or other jurisdiction in which it was issued. This documentation may be required as a condition of permitting ESA’s to accompany attendees. Under the Americans With Disabilities Act, ESA’s are not given the same rights and exemptions as Service Animals and approval of ESA’s in public areas and businesses are at the discretion of those entities. If prior approval is not given by IDEA, attendees will be asked to remove the ESA from the event.

What is the IDEA Cancellation Policy?

Cancellations on or before June 20, 2022 will be refunded in full (less a $100 processing fee). Cancellations received after une 20, 2022 " will be issued an open credit, in the full amount of your purchase that can be used toward a future IDEA event.

Is IDEA World Convention available to non-IDEAfit+ members?

This includes a 1-year IDEAfit+ membership and registration to 2022 IDEA World Convention for less than the price of signing up as a non-IDEAfit+ member. Other great benefits of being a member can be found here.
