How to RSVP for conference sessions


Morning conference sessions are being held at the Brown Hotel and are free and open to the public. Go to the Friday and Saturday program pages and click on the session times to RSVP.

Afternoon sessions will be at St. Charles Exchange.  Afternoon sessions require the purchase of a wristband ($10, available from St Charles Exchange).  You can RSVP for a seat by clicking on the session times on the Friday and Saturday program pages.  However, you’ll still need to purchase a wristband from St. Charles Exchange in order to have access to the sessions and the sample drinks.

We’re still working to finalize the conference program, but can announce at this stage presenters and the titles of their talks (we may yet add a couple to the list).  Presentation titles can be found on the conference program page.
