Info for Registered Attendees

Note: This page is superceded by a new Frequently Asked Questions page.

Thank you for registering for the ConveyUX conference. Here are notes about some of the resources that are available to you. This page will continue to be updated.

Hotel / Venue

All of the conference activities take place at the Motif Seattle hotel. Our Hotel & Travel page has information about the hotel. Our conference rate has expired, but rooms are still available.

Conference App

Here is a link to the early edition of the conference app on SCHED. Most attendees don’t get around to joining and completing their profile until right before the event. However, you are welcome to start using it at any time. Your logon uses the email address you used when registering for the event.

Sign up for a Slack invite

ConveyUX is offering Slack as an alternate method of getting and sharing conference news. You’ll need to fill out the following simple form to get your Slack invite.

Transportation

The Westlake Center station in the Metro bus tunnel is just two blocks from the hotel. If you are taking the Link light rail from the airport, it stops there.

Parking is valet-only and expensive at the hotel. Early bird parking in nearby lots is generally around $15 per day. Those lots are often full by 8:30am.

Check-in

You do not need to have a printed ticket. Just tell us your name to receive your badge and other materials.

  • Check-in and workshops on Tuesday takes place in the Seattle Ballroom on the 4th floor starting at 8:45 am and continuing through the day.
  • Check-in on Wednesday and Thursday is on the 3rd floor starting at 8:00 am. Opening session on Wednesday is in the Emerald Ballroom at 9:00 am.

Attending Sessions

You are welcome to attend any of the sessions over the three days. Tuesday workshops are included with your Full Conference pass.

Seating for all sessions is on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will send out a non-binding session selection survey to you before the conference. That helps us plan for sufficient seating. However, if you are really interested in a particular session you should plan on arriving early.

As with a  lot of conference venues, finding outlets can be tricky. We will do our best with power strips. But, you should consider coming with a full charge. There will be a charging station table in the conference foyer.

WiFi

If you are staying at the Motif hotel, you will receive complimentary internet access in your guest room. Ask for the code upon check-in.

We will have wifi access for everyone throughout the conference area Tuesday-Thursday.

Free public wifi is available in the lobby and the Frolic bar on the 5th floor.

Social Media

YouTube: Subscribe to our channel and see all the preview videos for the upcoming event. We also post videos from past events.

Twitter: You might want to follow and contribute to our ConveyUX tweets. The hashtag is #conveyux. We are retweeting interesting comments from our speakers.

Facebook: We have a Facebook page for ConveyUX. The speaker preview videos are posted there in addition to the web site. You are invited to make visitor posts and we hope you “like” it.

LinkedIn: We have a conference Interest Group. This connects you to any of the past, current, or future attendees of ConveyUX who have elected to join the group.

Slides and Videos

All registered attendees receive exclusive access to presentation slides and recorded video presentations. We will be recording all of the Wednesday and Thursday sessions, but not the Tuesday workshops.

You will receive a notice about access to the slides about three days after the conference. We will collect the latest versions available from the speakers and post them for you to download.

The live video recordings will be synced with the slides. Those will be available about two weeks after the conferences in an exclusive password-protected space. You will receive an email with information on when and how to access the videos.

 

We look forward to hosting you at the conference!
