Ignite ’15: Know Before You Go

The materials are printed and shipped. The speakers are polishing their remarks. And you—you’re ready to pack your bags for Ignite ’15!

But before you get out that suitcase, here are a few key details to note and things to gear up for:

Name badges will not be mailed in advance
If you haven’t already, you will receive a confirmation email prior to the conference. Bring this email to registration, which is located inside Halls F & G of the San Diego Convention Center. The bar code in your confirmation email will be needed to print your name badge and collect your conference bag at the new “Scan and Go” Stations. You may print your confirmation email or scan the bar code directly from your smartphone or tablet. If you don’t have your barcode email, you can simply enter your last name into the “Scan and Go” station.

Don’t miss out on key sessions
