Bags must be retrieved from the bag check area immediately following the last concurrent session on Monday (4:30 PM) and/or Tuesday (5:00 PM), and by 2:00 PM on Wednesday afternoon.
We'll be serving a complimentary continental breakfast and lunch each day. Beverages will also be available throughout the show. We work hard to make sure there are options for everyone, including vegetarians and vegans, and please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
