VISS Lecture

Types of Access

There are a variety of ways to attend VISS depending on what you want to get out of the event. First, decide if you want to attend as a workshops participant or an audit observer. You can then choose which day(s) you want, and later, customize which workshops, lectures, and series you want to attend. We also have additional events such as the Saturday evening gala, welcome to all.

Full Symposium Pass – intended for those who wish to swing a sword! This full participation pass grants you entry into all workshops, series, focus classes, and lectures for the duration of your pass. Symposium pass choice of a 1-day or a 3-day pass.

Lecture & Audit Pass – the audit pass lets you take part in our superb lecture series, access our museum, and attend all workshops to observe, take notes, admire, and learn. Some classes will have specific entry/exit times, others will be open-doors (details to be confirmed). Auditors can choose between a 1-day or a 3-day pass.

Gala Ticket – grants admission to our Saturday evening gala at Academie Duello. Entertainment will be in abundance and desserts will be served. Drinks will be available for purchase. One gala ticket is included with the 3-Day Full Symposium Pass.
