Your registration fee does not include:
We recommend the Hilton San Jose Hotel that's attached to the convention center. It is offering a special AIC discount rate of only $119 per night during the conference
Unlike previous AIC meetings, your registration fee does not include all meals. Previous AIC gatherings took place at locations that offered few dining options; therefore meals were catered at a significant additional cost to the registration fee. This year, AIC is surrounded by dozens of appetizing dining establishments. So, you have a wide selection of options that are within easy walking distance from the convention center.

Bring your spouse to AIC and give them a day to remember
This year, AIC offers your spouse a memorable Saturday experience while you are busy at the conference. For example, Saturday's adventure begins with meeting old and new friends in the lobby of the Hilton San Jose. An executive shuttle will pick up the group for a short drive down the road to Savory Kitchen, a local well-loved culinary school, to learn a few new tricks in the kitchen and enjoy lunch together.
Following Savory Kitchen, the group will take the executive shuttle back down the road to the San Jose Art Museum for a private tour. The Museum’s permanent collection - 1,400 varied artworks from the 20th and 21st centuries - has a special focus on West Coast art, seen in a national and international context. The group is invited to remain at the museum for further viewing or perhaps a tour of the gift shop followed by a fresh cup of tea in their cafe.
Once done enjoying the museum, everyone is free to walk back to the Convention Center (two blocks) or local hotel to refresh before the AIC dinner at Il Fornaio.
New this year: Spouse registrations also include admittance to any workshop when they accompany you. Each spouse registration also comes with a special welcome gift that includes a local guide and a few surprises to sweeten the weekend. The price is only $125.
We accept most major charge cards, Paypal (and personal check if paying at the door). All prices are subject to change without notice.
