Attendee Update

Howdy Y’all,

I wanted to do a quick follow up for the event this weekend.

There is a parking garage that has parking on the top floor. This top floor parking leads directly into the ball room where the sessions and the Gala as well as where the book festival will be held.

As for the AME event, remember, we have a casual reception of Friday night in the bar on the main floor from 7 – 9 PM

Attendee check in is on the second floor in the foyer starting at 7 AM. For those of you that have mobility issues, if you are staying in the hotel, you can exit an elevator on the second floor and walk down the hall to the ball room area. Otherwise, you can park at the top of the garage and use that entrance to enter. There is a separate elevator from the lobby to the ball room floor that is behind the check in area.

AME starts on Saturday at 7:30 is the first session that is MANDATORY for everyone.

Lunch is on your own at Noon.

The Gala reception will start at 7 PM, with Dinner at 8 PM

There will be munchies and caffeine provided on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.

As for the book festival, lunch will be served at 2 PM and there will be plenty of food.

For the book festival, If you select to go through the garage route to bring your books in, please don’t forget to check in at our desk on the second-floor foyer first before setting up, etc.
