Conference Info: Getting There, Picking Up Your Badge
July 2, 2013
The 2013 National NOW Conference is shaping up to be a wonderful weekend, and we're excited that you'll be joining us. We wanted to take a moment to share some logistical information that will help you arrive at the hotel and check in smoothly.
And remember: It's not too late to invite friends along to enjoy the conference with you. Although online registration has closed, they can always register on site.
Getting to the Hotel
The Hilton Chicago Downtown is our conference hotel, and is located at 720 South Michigan Ave. Chicago, IL 60605. Information about getting to the hotel can be found on our website.
Picking Up Your Badge
Conference registration and credentialing will be open during the following hours:
Thursday, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Sunday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
To expedite the registration process, please bring your NOW membership card, a copy of your online registration receipt, and/or a photo ID. If you do not have your membership card, please bring either proof of payment for your membership (i.e. a voided check and/or credit card statement) or the mailing label from a recent NOW mailing you received (such as the conference postcard). When you collect your badge, you will also receive your conference packet and program book.
If you are new to the NOW conference, you should attend the NOW 101 session on Friday, during the first break-out session, from 11:15 a. m. - 12:15 p.m. in room 4E.
You don't have to wait until you get your program book to plan what you want to do at the conference. Much of the conference program can be found online, but please note that it is still subject to change.
Speakers and Honorees
For $20, you will be given your choice of a special NOW bag or NOW wristband – with either the wristband or bag, you will be ready to shop! Wristbands and bags can be purchased at the Ask NOW Kiosk located near the registration and credentialing desk. Just show your bag or wristband to the NOW Store staffer in the exhibitor area and you will gain access to the merchandise. Items will be restocked throughout the day and throughout the conference (while supplies last).
