  • Allow extra time to park and walk in (with that many people, there will be a lot of cars!)
  • Parking in the lots around the hotel is FREE. Once those lots fill up, there is adjoining parking in the Cobb Galleria Parking Deck for $5.00. This rate is for the whole day; no validation of ticket is needed.

Name Badges

  • Most name badges have been mailed to your parish/school leader to distribute or were mailed individually. DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR NAME BADGE TO THE CONFERENCE!
  • If you registered after August 4th, you will pick up your name badge at Will Call when you get to the conference.

What to do when you arrive

  • BRING YOUR NAME BADGE WITH YOU. If you have your name badge, NO CHECK-IN NEEDED.
  • Pick up a lanyard and program on the tables at the top of the stairs
  • Enjoy the vendors if you get there early, or go directly to the Main Ballroom for the Opening Session.
