The last day is about owning your future. Now that you know what you’ve walked through, learn how that can make you a warrior for who you are about to become. 

 Expect to be energized and motivated. Expect to cry and make new friends. Expect to reconnect with those dreams and goals you’ve been carrying around for years, without any idea of what to do with them. Expect to be inspired to RISE!   

We love to end our conference with an epic After Party with our favorite DJ! 

Please note - After Party tickets are sold separately and must be purchased with a RISE x Fort Myers ticket.

Are tickets refundable or transferable? 

We are partnering with LYTE to provide a hassle-free, safe way to exchange tickets once they are sold out or if your plans change. Fulfillment is based on supply and demand. Tickets don’t become available on LYTE until a ticket-holder sells their ticket to LYTE making it available to someone on the waitlist. 

To SELL a ticket on LYTE, you may do so only once the ticket type you want to sell is sold out. 

To BUY tickets after sell out, you can make a reservation on the waitlist to purchase tickets on our RISE/LYTE fan-to-fan exchange. The price will vary based on ticket type and market demand. At the time you make a reservation on the waitlist, you will agree to a price you are willing to pay once the ticket you want becomes available. At that time your credit card is automatically charged and LYTE will make your tickets available to you. Ticket allocation is first-come, first-served. 

LYTE also provides a feature allowing you to transfer or send tickets to friends. Using LYTE guarantees ticket authenticity.LYTE is Hollis Co.’s exclusive partner on ticket exchange.
