Team Pricing Model

Work as a team, stay as a team! Destination Imagination will now offer a team-based, event registration fee that will allow each team to participate in a Global Finals unlike any before. Each team will be able to register unlimited supporters, and choose the food and lodging accommodations that best suit their individual needs. While meals and lodging are no longer included in the event registration fee, Kansas City offers incredible opportunities to design your perfect week at Global Finals. Below are just the highlights of the amazing experience your team will have when attending Global Finals 2019!

More details and information regarding registration deadlines will be posted in the coming months. Check back soon.


Unlimited Credentials Per Team

Bring your cheer squad! The registration fee includes unlimited credentials for supporters.


The Ceremonies

Like previous years, an up-to-10-ticket per team policy for arena seating is in place for Global Finals 2019’s Welcome Ceremony and Closing Celebration. The goal is to ensure that students get priority seating, while also accounting for Team Managers and chaperones. We expect that most supporters arriving on Wednesday will be able to sit in additional festival seating available in the Sprint Center, but cannot offer guarantees until final registration numbers have been received. Ticket quantities will be distributed based on the total number of Team Members and Team Managers designated during the online registration process by May 1. Please be sure to check that you have properly designated up to seven Team Members and up to three Team Managers to receive the appropriate number of tickets for your team.
