Do you know what to bring to the conference? That morning is going to be a change from your regular routine. It’ll be early and you’re a busy person, so we want to help. This checklist will help you get prepped in advance and out the door quickly on the big day.
The first thing you might be wondering is WILL THERE BE COFFEE? Yes! We’ll have coffee and tea waiting for you first thing in the morning this year. There will be handy refill stations if you bring your own travel cup.
What You MUST Bring!
- Your ticket! 2 options: be prepared to display your ticket on your phone (link in ticket email you received after purchase) OR print your ticket and bring it with you. Your ticket contains a QR code which we’ll use to scan you quickly through the door.
Here are some of the other things you might want or need to bring.
