There’s a lot going on at First Event! The best way to experience First Event is with the full conference package. If you can’t make it to the entire conference, pick a package that matches your schedules and interests or build your own conference à la carte. 

Discounts are available for students, children, and cisgender partners of transgender/gender variant people. Need-based scholarships are available to those who would not otherwise be able to attend (apply here).

Exclusive package discounts with the purchase of a new or renewed TCNE membership¹:

  • $50 off of Full First Event package. That’s like getting TCNE membership for just $15!!!
  • $25 off any other package.

¹Members who joined or renewed within the last year email for a discount code.
