Come for a Day or the Weekend!

StaarCon is a two-day conference with a third daylong Preconference Intensive. If you are only able to attend for a single day, either in person or online, you can purchase a ticket just for that day.

As a courtesy, we will include a Three of Cups General Admission ticket with your single day ticket. This will give you access to the classes in the Public Track on both Saturday and Sunday. Even if you cannot be there during the conference, you will have thirty days to watch those classes during the StaarCon AfterGlow on Accelevents Event Management Platform.

The single day tickets are as follows.

The Page of Swords is for the preconference intensive on Friday.

The Ace of Wands is for all three tracks of classes on Saturday.

The Ace of Cups is for all three tracks of classes on Sunday.

When you get your ticket, make sure you choose the ticket for In Person & Virtual Admission if you plan to join us in person in Palm Beach Gardens. If you plan to attend online, choose the ticket for Virtual Admission Only.

If you have any questions about ticketing for StaarCon, call or text Christiana at 561-655-1160, or email.

Mark Your Calendar for the AfterGlow Lounge Events

Every StaarCon ticket holder, no matter the ticket level, will have access to the StaarCon AfterGlow on Accelevents.

Every ticket holder will be able to view recordings of all classes included in their ticket level, shop in the virtual exhibition hall, and meet their conference friends in the lounges on Accelevents.

We also have three pre-scheduled lounge events, so mark your calendar to make sure you join us.

On Monday, January 31, 7 pm ET, join Mitchell Osborn for An Evening of Tarot Improv: A Fool’s Improvised Entertainment Journey.

Tarot improv with Mitchell is fun, funny, and extremely informative. At StaarCon 2021 we learned just how well tarot improve works in the online environment. Join us!

On Thursday, February 5, 7 pm ET, Christiana Gaudet and Barrett Urmy will be brainstorming a Star Trek tarot deck. If you are a fan of any or all of the Star Trek series, join us for a fun discussion of how the archetypes of tarot show up in the Star Trek universe.

On Thursday, February 10th at 7 pm ET it’s Tarot Healing with Amie Mouser.   Join Amie for some healing exploration and community connection. Bring your cards and questions for support and encouragement as you move forward.

Other lounge events will get scheduled during StaarCon 2022, and some will happen quite spontaneously. These three events are pre-scheduled, so we have something to look forward to so we can keep the post-conference blues away.

Accelevents has wonderful help files to give you any information you need. They even have a chat button where you can ask an Accelevents employee for help and direction.

Here is a great explanation of how to get started on Accelevents as a StaarCon attendee.

StaarCon Travel and Meals

If you are attending StaarCon in person, you will need to think about travel and meals.

It is easy to fly into Palm Beach International Airport and take an Uber or Lyft to the hotel, just ten minutes away.

Depending on where you are flying from, you might find it easier to land in Orlando or Fort Lauderdale and rent a car, or take a train to West Palm Beach, and Uber or Lyft from there.

If you are driving to StaarCon, you will find the DoubleTree Executive Meeting Center has plenty of safe and easy parking.

While at StaarCon, you have the option to get your lunches and your Saturday dinner with the StaarCon meal plan. The restaurant located within the DoubleTree is open only for breakfast, so the StaarCon lunches are a great way to save time and make sure you are ready for the afternoon sessions.

You must purchase your StaarCon meal tickets by January 10. Scroll to the end of the ticketing page to choose your meals.

If you have not yet reserved your hotel room at the DoubleTree, use the link below for your discount.

If you have any questions about your travel arrangements, please do not hesitate to reach out.

What Will the Weather Be in Palm Beach Gardens in January?

If you are coming to StaarCon in person, you might be wondering about the weather. While January is typically the coldest month of the year in South Florida, the weather is usually sunny and temperate. Expect the average temperature to be around 74 degrees Fahrenheit, while the low may drop down to 60 degrees. Don’t worry, the pool at the DoubleTree is heated!

If you buy a StaarCon meal ticket, you will enjoy eating your gourmet meals in a tented pavilion poolside.

If you want to enjoy libations and divinations in the DoubleTree bar, you will be able to sit with your conference friends at the poolside patio.

What Will StaarCon Online Be Like?

If you are attending StaarCon online, you might be wondering what the experience of online conferencing is. On Accelevents, the conference experience is not like a Zoom conference, or a conference held on social media.

When you attend StaarCon online, you can shop in the virtual exhibition hall. If you have a full conference ticket, you can pop in and out of the simultaneous classes, knowing you can watch the classes more carefully during the AfterGlow. You can meet with friends in the lounges and have one-on-one video chats with conference attendees on Accelevents.

You will also be able to interact with in person conference attendees. Whether the StaarCon presenter is in person or online, you will be able to use the chat function to ask questions.

A tarot conference is an immersive experience. Of course, there is something special about being with people in person, Yet, if that is not possible for you, StaarCon on Accelevents will be an exciting, informative, and immersive experience.
