1. Location.

All educational sessions and networking activities will be held at the Miami Beach Convention Center unless otherwise noted. Visit the conference website to research things to do in Miami, including restaurant and nightlife recommendations.

If you need to make a change to an existing reservation at a hotel in the block, please visit our website to update reservations.

Session rooms fill up fast so plan ahead. All session attendees must be seated during presentations. Standing in the back of a session room is prohibited by the 
Fire Marshal. In the event a “Session Full” sign is displayed no one will be permitted to enter the room.

Event Attire and Getting to the Convention Center
Dress for this conference is business casual. It is difficult to control the meeting room temperature to suit each individual's comfort level, and convention centers and meeting spaces are heavily air-conditioned so pack accordingly.

Whether traveling to the convention center on foot or by shuttle bus, please allow at least 20 minutes to get to your session room. If walking from your hotel, the closest entrance is on Washington Avenue at the intersection with 19th Street - look for the door decals. Shuttle schedules for the 1 Hotel, Cadillac, and Loews Miami Beach are available in the conference Mobile App. Please bring comfortable shoes and make sure you schedule your time wisely. Weather is difficult to predict in Florida so please plan to bring a rain jacket, umbrella and/or poncho.
