THIS IS MY FIRST CONFERENCE – WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW OR DO? We’ve tried to cover lots of common questions in this list. If you don’t see an answer to your question in this list, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE FOR THE CONFERENCE? Dress code is business casual. We recommend dressing in layers as it is difficult to predict the temperature in a room where you have a large number of people gathered. We also recommend wearing comfortable shoes!
INTERNATIONAL ATTENDEES Some travelers coming to the United States need visitor visas. Click here to visit the U.S. Department of State website for additional details related to passports, visas, etc.
