How to apply to Masterclasses, Guided Tours and Side Events

Basically, you need to complete two separate processes to apply to attend Masterclasses, Guided Tours and Side Events. Step 1: obvs., you need a ticket. No ticket, no applications, no exceptions (if you apply to a minimum of three Masterclasses and Guided Tours, you’re guaranteed at least 1 spot in one of the events you’ve applied to). You are also required to connect your ticket to your myOMR account. Just go to myOMR, which you’ll find in the upper right corner on omr.com .

Once that’s complete, we’re on to Step 2: your application. Check out the Event Timetable and identify the tours, seminars and Side Events you’d like to attend—be sure that they don’t overlap.

Once you’ve decided which events you’d like to attend (and are logged into myOMR), go to the Application Tool and apply for a spot in Masterclasses, Guided Tours and Side Events—you can find the Application Tool here. You can apply to attend up to 6 total Masterclasses or Guided Tours and an additional three Side Events. PRO-TIP: If you want to be guaranteed at least one spot in a Masterclass or Guided Tour, you must apply to at least three such events. The application phase runs from April 4 to April 24, 2024.
