The event itinerary is available without specifics before purchase. It will inform you about the number and type of events included with the purchase. So, you can make an informed decision before investing.

My homegirl wants to sleep in my room but isn't purchasing a package. Will she be allowed to attend any of the events?
If an attendee chooses to allow a guest in her room, we won’t oppose that. However, any unpaid guest won’t be allowed entry to any of the events.
The Galentines Day Gala and The Take Off Retreat are highly exclusive events. Our security and administration ensure the events stay exclusively open to our prestigious attendees only.
- Guests trying to enter without a ticket won’t be allowed.
- Guests attending fraudulently will be asked to leave. The attendee who brings an unpaid guest will forfeit their entry into any further weekend activities and will receive no refund.
I didn't purchase a hotel package. Can I stay and enjoy the amenities of the host hotel until I’m ready to go back to my hotel?
No, the amenities are only available to registered hotel guests. The host hotel has a very strict policy on unregistered guests. Guests will be allowed on the premises of the host hotel during event hours only. Once the event commences, guest will be expected to leave, unless in the company of a registered hotel guest.
We highly recommend getting the hotel package. It is Houston’s only five-diamond hotel and exudes luxury, elegance, and comfort. By choosing to stay in the host hotel, you can make the most of the events, and make unforgettable memories with other Galentines.
We choose our guest speakers keeping our audience in mind. Our guests match the level and excellence of the events. We are still in the process of securing the most-coveted, inspirational speakers for the 2023 events.
