Who's Invited?

The EXPO Spectator Pass is great for parents, chaperones, or siblings of EXPO Attendees. This pass is required for admittance to APEX competitions and main events (morning and evening), which include the Keynote Speaker, APEX Finals, and morning worship events. However, this pass does NOT include  EXHORT, workshops, or other activities. Most parent chaperones will want this pass. You do not need to purchase a pass if you are a chaperone and do not want to attend any EXPO events.

There are two types of spectator passes, Spectator (WITH Meals) and Spectator (WITHOUT Meals)
  • Spectator (WITH Meals) will come with lunch on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
  • Spectator (WITHOUT Meals) will not include any meals during the conference. 

An EXHORT ticket is not included with either Spectator Pass. EXHORT tickets can be purchased. 


Purchasing a Spectator Pass grants you access to the following events:
  • Morning Worship: Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings
  • APEX Adjudications, as room permits
  • APEX Showcase, as room permits
  • EXPO Final Exhibition
The following are NOT included but can be purchased separately:

Chaperone Responsibilities

Chaperones are responsible for their students during non-scheduled EXPO events. Mornings before events, free time, meal times, late evenings, and inside hotel rooms will need to be monitored by chaperones. For any chaperone that would like to attend EXPO just to perform these duties and does not want to attend the above gatherings, you do not need to register.

Visitors at EXPO

EXPO is a closed event and visitors are not permitted. Only paid registrants are allowed to attend EXPO events. Everyone must be wearing their passes in order to enter events.

EXPO Rules for Students

Branch Leaders may implement additional rules. Students must adhere to the following:
  • 11 pm nightly curfew. For safety reasons and as a courtesy to other hotel guests, we ask that students be in their rooms by 11 pm.
  • Only people registered on the hotel reservation for your room are allowed in your hotel room. No student should be in another student's room without an adult chaperone present.
  • Students must follow the EXPO schedule and attend all events. If students are not going to attend a scheduled EXPO event, they must be with their parent chaperone (there is plenty of free time at this year’s EXPO, so please do not plan your “pool time” during scheduled events)
  • We require ALL students and leaders to agree to our Rules of Engagement upon registration. We ask that leaders and parent/chaperones help implement these standards for the safety and fun of the group. Be sure to review the Rules of Engagement before arriving at EXPO.
