Elevate 2018 Checklist: Are you ready?
As your friendly Events Concierge, I have a few tips for you to make the most out of your trip to Washington, DC.
There’s less than one week until Elevate 2018, ATPCO’s annual global conference! I cannot wait to see everyone at our sold-out event. With 40% of attendees at director level and above and more than 60% of attendees representing airline partners, it’s sure to be an exciting week.
BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
Make sure you don’t leave the house without double-checking your packing list!
Elevate 2018’s dress code is business casual. Be sure to bring shoes you feel comfortable walking in. We have a ton in store (lots of networking), so make sure you’re ready to walk around and meet new people!
Fall is here, and for our area, that means warmer days and cooler nights. You may find conference rooms a little chilly, so keep that in mind when packing. My advice? Bring layers!
Download the App
Before you get on your plane, download the Elevate 2018 app and explore Elevate 2018’s schedule, the 21 sessions, our 54 speakers, and so much more.
From lotion to lip balm, medicines to chargers, don’t forget everyday items. You’ll be busy meeting so many people, you don’t want to get sick or have to run to the store!
ONCE YOU GET HERE
You’re finally here! Don’t waste a moment while you’re with us.
Staying at the Hyatt?
You’re staying in the heart of the action! The Hyatt has convenient shuttles that go back and forth from Dulles International Airport (IAD) throughout the day. Check here for times or learn how to request a shuttle pick up here.
That’s super cool, too! Just so you know, ATPCO won’t be providing shuttles to surrounding hotels, but we do recommend ride sharing (like Uber or Lyft) to get you to the venue. Or, talk to your hotel’s front desk to see what other options, like buses and taxis, you have.
Keep it fit
Want to keep your gym streak going, or make sure you take enough steps for your Fitbit while you travel? Check out your hotel’s gym (here’s the Hyatt’s) and surrounding trails for a scenic run. My personal favorite, the W & OD trail, is just steps away from Reston Town Center!
Explore the area!
You’re staying near our nation’s capital and there’s so much to see! The area surrounding the hotel is a bustling, charming space with many shops and restaurants. And, if you have the time, check out what else Washington, DC, has to offer! You have many options for getting around downtown.
GET THE MOST FROM THE CONFERENCE
Stay on top of what’s next on your packed agenda.
WiFi: At the Hyatt Regency, conference WiFi will be available to all attendees.
- Network: @Hyatt_WiFi_Events
- Password: atpco2018
But don’t worry if you forget it! The back of your badge will also have the network and password information.
Did I mention you should download the app? Not only can it help you get excited for what’s to come before you arrive, it can help you throughout the event! There’s a map of the conference floor, an agenda, speaker info, and so much more.
If you need anything during the event, please look for our Event Concierge, Ulyana Uebersezig. She is your main point of contact for any questions or needs you have, and she is always happy to help!
I hope these few tips will be helpful as you plan your trip to Elevate 2018. Safe travels, and we’ll see you on 8 October!
