Final details for attendees

We are looking forward to seeing you Saturday June 4th!  Please note that we nearly sold out, and there will be no tickets available at the door.  You’ll need to grab one over on the tickets page.


Registration will open at 8am, with our opening remarks shortly after 9am.  While there will be some light snacks and coffee/tea available you’ll probably want to grab some breakfast beforehand.


We’ll have some swag to give away, so you may want to bring a small bag to carry them around if you won’t have a car to throw the goodies into.


McMaster Innovation Park has confirmed parking will be free.  So feel free to park in the lot, conference parking, or across the street if both are full.


Seating will be chairs only in rows (no tables), and while you could bring your laptop and use it on your lap there will be no plugs available for powering them.  Most speakers will make their slides available afterwards, and feel free to bring paper/pen to take notes!


We have done our best to accommodate all special requests.  If you did not request a special meal during registration, please do not take any of the vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free meals until attendees with special needs have been accommodated, and there is a restaurant just around the corner from the venue if needed.


The after-party is happening at the nearby Ye Olde Squire, which is a short walk away, at 6pm.  Be sure to keep your nametag/badge to get in!


Reach out on our contact page and we’ll do our best to help!
