Our big Kickoff at BB King’s (6:30-10:30 p.m. Wednesday) is a non-ticketed event. However, **bring your convention name badge to BB King’s, where you will receive a Tyvek wrist band to be your credential for the rest of the evening.
5. CE SESSIONS: Automatic Scan-Ins!
This year you do NOT have to stop to have your badge scanned before entering the room for CE sessions. Instead, our RFID (radio frequency ID) will pick up a chip in your badge as you walk through the doors, check you in automatically, and record your attendance. (Space age!) So just head on into the room, find a seat, and get ready to “cross the bridge” to deeper knowledge and practical insights!
6. HURRICANE / FLOOD Relief Opportunities
Our hearts are with all affected by hurricanes Harvey on the Gulf Coast and Irma in the Southeast.
