HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
12 monthly payments of $450 USD (or a $4950 USD one-time payment), for a shared room. You can also upgrade to a single room for an additional $1250 USD.
You may also choose to put down a deposit of $1000 USD to secure your spot. A balance of $4750 USD is due 4 months prior to event date (Jan. 13, 2019). Should you need to cancel your participation, your deposit is not eligible for a refund, but you will receive an equivalent credit toward any of our future events.
One-time payments and monthly payments are eligible for a full refund up to 4 months prior to start date (Jan. 13, 2019).
NOTE: MMA Utah is a 'put away your wallet' event. From the moment we pick you up in Vegas to the conclusion of the event, everything is covered: your lodging, meals, activities, gear, drinks, etc. Gratuities for guides and drivers will be provided by us, but you may provide additional gratuity should you choose.
NOTE: Most people who attend MMA events are able to write the cost off as a business expense because of the learning and networking components of the event. We're happy to provide receipts stating 'executive coaching' or similar if needed.
WHO WILL BE AT MMA UTAH?
Although we don’t have strict revenue or company size requirements (the caliber and vibe of the entrepreneurs attending is a much more important consideration), most of the people who attend lead companies between $1M and $100M in annual sales (average is $4M) and who consistently invest in themselves, their knowledge and their networks - and like to have a ton of fun and challenge themselves while doing it.
Past participants include
Sarah Makhomet, Founder at HCS group of companies & CEO at Juniper Life Insurance
UJ Ramdas, founder of the Five Minute Journal
Hollis Carter of Baby Bathwater Institute
Brad Pederson, founder of Tech4Kids

DO I NEED TO HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH THE ADVENTURE SPORTS?
You do not need to have any prior experience with any of the activities we'll be doing at MMA Utah, however you do need to be reasonably fit (i.e. you exercise at least once a week), and willing and eager to take on challenges.
All activities are optional - if you feel like ducking out of a particular activity and chilling at Red Mountain Resort, you're welcome to do so.
WHAT does the schedule look like?
A typical day looks like this:
Breakfast at 7 am
Morning activities start at 8 am
Return to RMR by 2 pm
Workshops from 2:30 to 4 pm
Hot Tub/Chill Time: 4 pm to 6 pm
Group dinner at 6 pm
Evening Talk and Discussion from 8 to 9 pm

All drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic)
4 days of incredible adventures

4 afternoons/evenings of curated learning and networking, with roundtables, fireside chats, and other activities
Plus a sprinkling of magic and other goodies that we're not going to tell you about
WHERE DO WE MEET Up, and when?
Pickup is at 11:00 am on Monday, May 13 at the MGM (if you're flying in the night before) and Las Vegas Airport at 11:30 am.
If you're flying in that morning, please don't book a flight that arrives later than 10:30 am, to allow for customs, baggage pickup, and delays.
Alternately, arrive the day before and spend a night in Las Vegas with your fellow MMA-ers. You're welcome to book your stay at hotels other than the MGM Grand, but to minimize delays we will only be doing pickup at the airport and the MGM.
After pickup at the airport, we will head straight to Red Mountain Resort, arriving at approximately 3:00 pm. If you prefer to drive there on your own, you can check in any time from 3pm onwards. Here is the address - your room will be booked under 'Mastermind Adventures' and your name.
On our last day (Friday, May 17), we will have a morning of adventures, a final group lunch and closing ceremony, and then the shuttle will depart for Las Vegas airport at 2 pm, arriving at approximately 5 pm (with a superfun stop on the way). Your room in Las Vegas and dinner are included for Friday night, however if you absolutely have to fly home that night, please book your flight home accordingly (i.e. departing no earlier than 7:30 pm).
HOW DOES THE LEARNING AND CONNECTING COMPONENT WORK?
Through the nature of spending 5 days in a beautiful environment, relaxing and pushing yourself with other inspiring entrepreneurs, you will naturally connect with and learn from each other. We like to take it a step further and apply a healthy dose of curation and structure to the learning and connecting component of MMA.
The adventures will conclude every day around 2 pm, leaving us the late afternoons and evenings for facilitating the magic that happens when you connect incredible people with each other.
what's the rooming arrangement?
Lodging is at world-renowned Red Mountain Resort in Ivins, Utah (just outside of St. George). The default rooming arrangement is 2 to a room (2 queen beds), however you can upgrade to a single king suite for an extra $1000 USD.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
You will be provided with a detailed packing list 2 weeks prior to the event, and a final weather-dependent list just prior to the event.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Attendance at MMA events is by invitation only. If you are invited, you will be provided with a password for the booking page to reserve your spot with either an upfront payment or a monthly payment. Alternately, we may open up a few spots for applicants - submit your application here.
CAN I BRING A PARTNER/KIDS?
There are a limited number of spaces available for participants to bring their partner. Unfortunately, Red Mountain Resort is an adult-only resort, so children are not welcome.
The partner rate of $1500 USD includes lodging, transportation from/to Las Vegas, and all meals. It does not include activities - these can be arranged separately and we will provide you with all the details for doing so. It also does not include the learning components - these are for the entrepreneur participants only.
Please note that because much of the value of MMA is via the learning and connection in the afternoons/evenings, so if you bring your partner you are still expected to take part in all of the scheduled learning/connecting events (and why wouldn't you want to?).
WHAT IF I HAVE TO CANCEL?
Should you need to cancel, you're eligible for a full refund up to 3 months in advance of the start date. After that, we cannot guarantee a refund, however if we can find someone to take your spot (which shouldn't be much of a problem - demand tends to far exceed supply) then you can get a full refund. Nonetheless, we recommend purchasing trip cancellation insurance after the 3-months-to-go mark.
WILL THERE BE HOT TUBS?
