Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

If you want to make money as a creator you have to learn how to be an entrepreneur and be aware of what tools are available to you to make it happen. One of the best ways to make money as a creator is through membership. Membership allows creators to turn a community of their most passionate fans into paying subscribers in exchange for additional access, exclusivity, and engaging experiences. Alexis Gay, Creator Partnership Lead at Patreon, will teach creators how to start, run and operate a membership business, leveraging relationships with fans so that creators can get paid. Alexis will walk attendees through how to use membership tools, engage fans and become a successful creative entrepreneur.
