Packing Heat (And Cold)
Attire: It’s Colorado, so that means casual. It’s Colorado, so that also means it could be 75 or 17 degrees (and that’s just the conference room). Dress in layers and be prepared for anything!
Swim Cap Exchange: Please bring your team's swim cap to trade with fellow attendees.
Ok, it’s not college, no one will be watching over your shoulder, but to get the most of out of the conference, we strongly suggest the following:
- Set up a Twitter, Facebook and Instagram account BEFORE coming (it’s ok if it is personal or for your team). And try to remember your password!
- Bring your laptop, phone or tablet so you can put your new skills to practice, which is encouraged. Power supplies could be limited, so juice up.
