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! 

2 Team T-Shirts: One you will wear for a group picture and the other is to trade with your fellow attendees. 

Pre-Requisites

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.
  • A sample of a recent sponsorship proposal
