There are shuttle options available to and from McCarran Airport.

BEFORE THE CONFERENCE

Q. How can I access the session handouts?

We strongly recommend that you download and print out the handouts for your sessions before our conference. Handouts for each session are available online in your presenters store. (Scroll all the way down for a list of handout links.)

 

Q. Where do I go to check in for the TpT conference?

The Congress Center is located between the Venetian/Palazzo off of the mall that connects the two casinos. Think of the entire facility as a triangle: The congress center is one of the points of the triangle and the Venetian and Palazzo are the other two points.

 

Q. Is there early check in/registration for the conference?

Yes! The TpT Conference Registration Booth will be open on Thursday afternoon, July 10th from 1 PM to 5 PM on Level 3 of the Conference Center in the Venetian/Palazzo. If you can, we do encourage you to sign in and pick up your name badge during our early check in.

Q: What if I want to change my session picks?

Just let us know when you check in and get your badge and we’ll work with you.

DAY OF CONFERENCE

Q. Where do I go to check in/register on site/get my name badge?

The TpT Conference Registration Booth is open 7 AM to 8 AM on Level 3. Look for TpT Welcome signs and our greeters will be happy to point you in the right direction.

For those who are not yet familiar with the Venetian/Palazzo Conference Center, it’s big. From the ground floor follow signs to “Meeting Space.” When you see the “Rock of Ages” box office, make a left, take the ramp and continue straight ahead, past the electronic boards about halfway down that long hall until you see a set of escalators on the left. For registration, take that up to Level 3. For the breakfast and Keynote, take the escalator to Level 5.

 

Q. Will there be friendly faces to help me find my way on Friday?

Yes! Look for greeters with TpT signs. If you are really turned around, ask a hotel employee for the Conference Center and/or the Rock of Ages theater and use the directions found in the answer above.

 

Q. Will breakfast be provided?

Yes! We’re bringing you a very nice continental breakfast available starting at 7 AM in the Keynote Room. Please come and enjoy.

 

Q. What time does the conference start?

The continental breakfast will be available from 7 to 8 AM in the Keynote room. The Keynote starts at 8 AM (on Level 5) and sessions begin promptly at 9:15 AM (on Level 3).

 

Q. How do I know where to go for the Keynote, sessions, and Happy Hour?

When you check in and receive your name badge, you will also receive a program guide that includes all room assignments and a map.

 

Q. Is there an official hashtag I should use for the day’s events?

Yes! Please use hashtag #TpTVegas14 (some folks are also using #TpTVegas2014 — check that out too!).

 

Q. Should I wear my name badge all day?

Yes! Please wear your name badge as this is your access ticket for TpT sessions. You will also find two drinks tickets in the back of your name badge that are each good for one beverage of your choice during our TpT Happy Hour at 4 PM.
