Additional Details

Traffic can be very busy at this time of morning so we suggest leaving early enough to give yourself plenty of time to reach the convention center.

Just a reminder that the conference center is large and temperature control can be difficult. We recommend dressing in layers or bringing a sweater for your comfort.

Dietary Request

We will do our best to accommodate any specific dietary requirements that are noted at the time of registration if applicable. If you have a severe medical need, you are also welcome to bring your own food and drinks to avoid any issues.

Nursing Room

A nursing/pumping room will be available onsite. 

*New this year: We are doing our part and reducing our paper use. We will not be printing a paper syllabus this year.

The PDF's that would normally go into the syllabus will be emailed to you the week prior to the conference. You are welcome to print them out & bring them to the conference if you'd like. We will not have any extras printed. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns with this new initiative.
