Come and Go as You Please. 

On Monday, you have lots of options. You might arrive at the hotel and immediately enjoy a drink at the Welcome Party, while the hotel holds your bag. Then walk out to the courtyard to see what's happening. Then back to the lobby for some pampering. Then check into your room. Then back to the lobby to register and grab a bite to eat.

You might go on a tour, or connect with a sponsor, or attend a Workshop or Bootcamp upstairs.

Be sure to wrap up your activities by 6:00p, because that's when the sponsored Dinners Around Town begin.

CLOSING KEYNOTE

Two notes: 1) After the Keynote, most sponsors will be at their booth until 7:00. And then they're closing up shop. So now's your last chance to make a connection.

2) All fully stamped passports are due at the beginning of the Closing Keynote. The winner will be picked at the end of the Closing Keynote.
