Read on for important information about registration and planning your day at the inaugural Lead On Conference for Women!

When You Arrive…

Your name badge is your ticket to the event, and badges have already been distributed to the primary contact person for your registration. For attendees without badges, Will Call will open at 7:30 a.m. in the Main Lobby – please bring a copy of your confirmation email.

If you have already received your badge, you do not need to check in at the registration desk upon arrival – you may proceed to pick up your bag with goodies and lanyard with badge holder in the Main Lobby.

Seating Assignments: Your badge includes your seating assignment for lunch. We ask that you sit only at your assigned seat during that time. However, all other sessions, including the morning session, are open seating.
