Once you register, you can select the panel that you would like to attend. For more details on each panel, please click here. If the panel you select is filled to capacity, we reserve the right to re-assign registrants to different panels. If you do not choose a panel, we will randomly assign you.
If looking for accommodations, we recommend that you visit www.booking.com (and similar websites like Expedia or Kayak) to get the best rate. If you are not familiar with NYC, try to get a hotel in the East Side near Lexington Avenue or Grand Central area, where you can take the Lexington Line Subway #6 to 116th Street (walk up three blocks to 119th and turn right to 3rd Avenue). We recommend the Hotel Deuville on 29th Street.
Most participants are staying at the Courtyard by Marriott Upper East Side on 92nd Street/1st Avenue. It is a short cab ride or you can walk to 3rd Avenue and take any bus to 119th Street – it will leave you across the street from the venue.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
