Class Locations:

Did you know that the class numbers have a "secret" meaning? Here is how you can decipher our class codes.

The first number indicates the day of the week that the class is held or in the case of multiple days the first day.


#1 is Monday, #2 is Tuesday, #3 is Wednesday and so on.


Example = 3005C is a Wednesday Class


The second number is usually 0 indicating the class is not a multiple day class. If the second number is 2 or higher, it is a multiple day class and the number

indicates the day the class ends using the #2 is Tuesday, #3 is Wednesday, system.


Example = 4601R The class is held Thursday through Saturday.


If the third number is a 6 then the class

is a night class.

Example = 4063C is a Thursday Evening class.


Other numbers in #3 spot

are part of the fourth number such as 11, 12, 13 etc.

Example = 5015C (Our evening special events and lectures do not follow this rule).

The fourth number is the actual number of

the class for that day and is usually assigned in

alphabetical order of the instructor's last name.


Example = 6015C is a Saturday class

The letter at the end indicates where the

class will be held. Example = 6012R


A = Ayres Hotel

C = Convention Center

D = DoubleTreeHotel

R = Radisson Hotel

N = North Annex

Our Cancellation Policy:


Road to California has made a change to its cancellation policy. We will no longer offer cancellation insurance. Road to California's cancellation policy will offer everyone a refund based off both the date they registered as well as the proximity to the show. Cancellation date is determined based off of date that the registration is processed. If a class is transferred, the registration date is the earliest date of the transaction - not the date of the transfer.  Please review the chart below for clarification.




Registration fees are not refundable.


Cancellations received BEFORE Refund Rate


- Within 7 days of registering 100% -

- Saturday, August 01st 2017 90% -

- Sunday, November 01st 2017 66% -

The $35 registration fee is not refundable or transferable under any circumstances.



Cancellation of the entire conference will result in forfeiture of all courtesy gifts including the entry badge. No Exceptions will be given.



Transferring to a new class:


If at any point an attendee would like to transfer from one class to another we can do so with a $5 transfer fee. In the event the class in which the attendee transferring to is more than the class transferring from, the attendee will be responsible for the difference in price in addition to the $5 transfer fee.  In the event the opposite occurs, We (Road to California) will calculate the difference in classes and refund back the amount minus the $5 transfer fee.  If a class is transferred, the registration date is the earliest date of the transaction - not the date of the transfer.


Cancellation Policy subject to change without notice. Cancellation situations not directly addressed by our cancellation policy are bound to the decisions made by Road to California Staff and Management.

Refunds at the Show:

Road to California does not grant refunds after the cancellation periods have elapsed.  If you have serious dissatisfaction with a class, please submit the Class Complaint form found at the On-site Registration desk.  This form MUST be submitted within 2 hours of the conclusion of a day class, or by 9 AM - the morning following the conclusion of an evening class.  Management will contact you about your class experience after the conclusion of the show.
