Registration & Housing | GYC Louisville

New & Exciting Changes This Year!

GYC is using a new registration system for the conference this year. We hope it will be easier for you to navigate, but if you run into any questions, don’t hesitate to email our friendly registration department at We are all volunteers, so we appreciate your patience as they work to respond to and resolve your issue.

We also have new registration options including deposit payments (limited time) and exhibitor packages. Please carefully review the information below so you will not miss any of the changes. Please notice the conference will be free to the public starting Sabbath morning through Saturday night (this year, the program concludes on Saturday night). You will need to complete a free Sabbath registration to be admitted.

Check out the the new Ambassador Reward Program (see details below) that we are experimenting with to replace the Group Discounts we have had in the past. We hope this will be a benefit to those who do not have the time or means to manage a large group registration while also giving your friends and family an extra incentive to join you in experiencing GYC Louisville!
