The Ampersand venue will be open from 9:00 a.m., and you are welcome to arrive either via the street level doors at the West Tower, or via the Plus-15 from the Harmony Parkade across the street.

Please plan to complete registration prior to 9:50, as our event program will start at 10 a.m. sharp, and late arrivals will not be seated until a break between speakers.



Parking is available in the Harmony Parkade (formerly James Short), which is accessible off of both 4th (Westbound) and 5th (Eastbound) Avenue. The daily rate on weekends is $3, and you are encouraged to use the Plus-15 system to connect to The Ampersand.

If you have forgotten your ticket, you will need to have the name of the ticket purchaser in order for us to retrieve your order.


Badging and Coat/Bag Check

Once you have been checked in, we invite you to pick up and "Style your badge". If needed, you can also check your coat or large bags at the venue coat check.

Our team members are there to guide you... if you have any questions, don't be shy to ask!
