*Special Instructions for Keynote Attendance

Due to demand, we are not able to accommodate all conference attendees in the same room at the same time to hear the keynotes. We have split the attendees into three groups, each of who will get to experience the same keynotes each day, just in a varied order. Information e-mails with your group assignments were sent out on 02/05/19. Those with TAN badges will view the keynotes in the Grand Ballroom, which is located three floors down from the Lobby Level of the Fairmont, and those with GREEN badges will view the keynotes in the Venetian Room on the Lobby Level of the Fairmont. Our overflow group (those who registered after the conference was sold out of general space) will have YELLOW badges and view the keynotes (on Friday Only) via a live stream, on screens in the Pavilion Room located on the Lobby Level of the Fairmont.

The badge colors and groups only affect the keynote addresses. During the concurrent sessions A, B, C, and D, you are free to attend the track of you choice. The surveys that you may have previously received were to assist in our planning only.
