Hello are there any military veteran rates available for conference only / no workshops.

Hi CJ,

Thank you for your interest in QuantCon and for your service! We certainly do offer a discount to veterans. I directly messaged you your code to use. If there are any other veterans out there that would like to attend, please reach out to me directly at [email protected].

Hope to see you there!
