Info for Registered Attendees

Thank you for registering for the ConveyUX conference. Here are notes about some of the resources that are available to you. UPDATED Feb 13, 2018.

We’ll be packed with 400 people from 13 countries and 24 US states.

Hotel / Venue

All of the conference activities take place at the Motif Seattle hotel. Our Hotel & Travel page has information about the hotel.

Our special conference room rate has expired. But you can still get free amenities like in-room WiFi by mentioning you are with “ConveyUX”

Code of Conduct

The ConveyUX UX has a Code of Conduct that we expect attendees to adhere to. For related issues contact Joe Welinske: 206-304-1687. For immediate assistance contact Motif Hotel security 206-971-8071.

Conference web app – SCHED

Our official conference web app is SCHED. With SCHED, you can set up your own conference agenda and an optional personal profile.

You should have received an email from SCHED when you registered for the conference. The sending address is ‘Sched’ <notifications@sched.org>. Your logon uses the email address you used when registering. You can reset/set your own password for access.

The schedule is currently up-to-date, but we will be making adjustments through to the end of the conference. This is the best place to get the latest info on your own device.

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.

Please note: SCHED is a web-based tool – not specifically an iPhone/Android app. You can use it through any browser.

Conference information is also available through ConveyUX.com. However, that site will not necessarily have all the latest updates that you may find on SCHED.

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.

The downtown area is filled with quick-access bikes. This is a cheap and easy way to move around. Vendors include Limebike, Ride, and Ovo.

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.

There should be enough seats in every session. But if you care where you sit you may want to get to your sessions early. Seating for all sessions is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please help us plan for sufficient seating by filling out the non-binding session selection survey before the conference. If you are really interested in a particular session you should plan on arriving early.

Bring a sweater! We do our best to maintain a comfortable temperature in all rooms. But large venues can be finicky and you may want to have a wrap.

As with a  lot of conference venues, finding electrical 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 common area.

The ConveyUX big party is taking place at the new office of Blink UX. It is a quick Lyft or a 12-15 minute walk. Program Manager Joe Welinske gives a real-time video guide on the easiest way to go.

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.

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

Thank you to Loop11 for sponsoring the conference WiFi. It is available for everyone throughout the conference area Tuesday-Thursday.

It can helpful to our communal bandwidth if you can avoid downloading very large files and extended streaming.

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.
