Is there a Day Pass available for individuals who can’t attend all the DIM LBUF dates?
YES, there is a Day Pass fee of $50.00 for those individuals unable to attend the entire Institute, and a Group Day Pass rate of $400 (10 people or more). However, we strongly encourage participation in the entire Institute to maximize the training and information necessary to take your ministry to the next level of development. Your day pass also allows you entry into the Long Beach Unity Festival on Saturday.

Will I need additional funds while attending DIM & THE LONG BEACH UNITY FESTIVAL?
YES, you will need additional money to pay for any meals on your own. There will be vendors (market place ministry) at the Conference selling garments, flags/banners, CDs, DVDs, books, etc. There will be opportunities to give offerings during the evening worship services. At the Long Beach Unity Festival (Saturday), there will be many food booths/vendors to choose from at a reasonable cost. There will also be opportunities to participate in special outings/events, around-town city tour, and more—again for small costs on-your-own. Details and sign-ups available at REGISTRATION ON-SITE. Please note that transportation is provided per the designated DIM Schedule to the various event venues for registered guests only. Travel to the hotel or any place else outside of these scheduled times are on your own.

How can Vendors (Marketplace Ministry) confirm their space at THE DANCER IN ME and THE LONG BEACH UNITY FESTIVAL?
All interested Vendors may visit www.spiritofpraiseinternational.com and click the “REGISTER HERE” option. There will be no food vendors on site at CSULB—only approved merchant and resource vendors. The Long Beach Unity Festival will host both food/resource/merchant vendors. Upon approved application, City of Long Beach permit fees may apply. Please allow 48 hours for our team to approve your application. You may also call us at 562-293-1700.

How much should I allow for meals included in my DIM/LBUF Registration?
At a small cost, lunch meals will be provided on-site by LBUF/Spirit of Praise and other surrounding food establishments at a very low and reasonable cost for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner. We suggest an estimate of $5-$7 for Breakfast and Lunch, and $10 for Dinner.

What are the meal/food options available to DIM/LBUF Participants who are staying at the Hotel?
Hotel Maya has a fantastic, full-service restaurant Fuego features a variety of delicious options in Mexican, Latin American, and South American cuisine. DIM registered hotel guests receive breakfast meal discounts. A complimentary shuttle is also available to transport guests to the popular Downtown Pine St. and The Pike just 5 minutes away, which has an array of restaurants, deli’s, shops, and attractions.
