What should I make sure I have done before the day of the conference(s)?
Ensure you have registered for the conference(s) of your choosing. Also, be sure to look over and familiarize yourself with the agenda for the day (agendas are linked on each conference’s page). This will help your day flow smoothly.
Do I preregister for the sessions I wish to attend?
No, you do not register in advance for the sessions. Sessions are filled the day of the conference at a first-come, first-served basis.
Where should I park for the conferences?
