Admission to Sessions
Official name badges will be required for admission to all sessions. All Current Concepts & Hands-On Course attendees receive a name badge with their registration materials.

Attendees are cautioned against wearing their name badges while away from the venue, as badges draw unwanted attention to your status as visitors to the city.
