Yes. Upon registration, you will be asked to disclose any kind of dietary preference, sensitivity, or allergy and we will accommodate you without extra charge.


What should I wear?

Wear what you feel comfortable in! For some, that will mean business professional and for others it means yoga pants. The ASI staff will be outfitted in ASI swag along with some comfortable pants and shoes.


What if I cannot attend at the last minute?

Please reach out to the ASI team at or (716) 833-3004 as soon as you know that you cannot attend. We require a 48 hours advance notice for refunds. 


Do I have to be an artist or creative to attend?

No! While our sessions are geared toward those working in the creative industry, CPX: Emergence is open to anyone looking for inspiration. Artists, creatives, directors, and administrators at any point in their journey will find something useful. We like to think of this conference as a "take what you need" kind of experience!
