1. Parking and Registration
Parking will be available in our student parking lot. We will have a traffic cop and students directing traffic in the morning. We encourage you to car pool if possible. Once you are parked, follow the signs or student help crew to the front of the school.
We will start checking in attendees, vendors, and presenters at 7:00 am in the main lobby. Bring your ticket if possible for check-in. We will have separate check-ins for attendees, presenters, and vendors. All attendees will receive a gift bag and a t-shirt. Sizes and numbers are limited, so there is a chance that all attendees may not receive these items.
We will also be providing a digital and paper version of our schedule and session descriptions. If you want to access the ePub version of our literature, you can click here using your iPad, Android, iPhone. We will also have students to help setup the literature on your device when you register.
2. Once you are registered
We will be providing coffee in the morning and light snacks courtesy of our school store. Note that we are not providing a full breakfast, and we encourage attendees to grab nourishment before they arrive. There is a Dunkin Dounuts and a Starbucks located near the school. Locations are embedded in the links.
Once you are registered you can move towards the auditorium for the opening keynote.
3. Device setup and Help Desk
Once you enter the building you can access our Wi-Fi by selecting “Summit” from the list of available networks. There is no sign in required for access. If you need help with setting up your device, our student help desk will be available during registration and throughout the day.
Each room will have power strips for charging and we will offer charging stations in our blogger cafe in the center of the library. Our student help desk will be on hand all day to offer tech support. If you have a problem at any time during the summit, you can visit the student help desk in the main lobby or use the hashtag #bhshelpdesk to submit a problem.
The New England 1:1 Summit will also have a concierge on hand all day for all of your needs and requests. The Summit Concierge is Sid Chhayani and you can follow him on twitter @NE121concierge
