Sunday's Notes for Attendees: 


Registration opens at 9:00am.

You will see a coffee shop right before the conference area. Don't worry! This is not the only place to get coffee. We will have morning refreshments for you in the Events Center, so you don't need to stand in line to get your buzz.

Be sure to pick up a Show Guide and an Addendum with some important schedule changes. Read more notes.
