BADGES WILL NOT BE MAILED – attendees will receive a barcoded email one week prior to the conference. Bring this email with you to the Casino lower level and the PRE-REGISTERED ATTENDEE SCANNING STATIONS. There you can scan the barcode and print your badge which will include course code(s) for admission to all your registered courses in lieu of tickets.

In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, we will not print handouts for the courses. Two weeks prior to the conference, we will include those course materials provided by your speaker(s) to access online, download and print. See the course pages for which you are registered to download any available handouts.

Registrants may be required to bring instruments or other materials to the hands-on workshops. It is the responsibility of each registrant to check the course descriptions and/or their confirmation email carefully for equipment needed.

CE verification is automatically provided for all course attendees. To receive CE credit, attendees must scan their badge at the entry door of the course. The system will then calculate attendance and appropriate CE credits per course. Attendees can obtain a printed CE Certificate following the conclusion of the course in the convenience of your home or office. (CE Certification printing not available onsite).
