Will parking be validated? Yes, we will give you validation when you arrive at the conference center. (You will be sent specific instructions on parking)

What is the airport tour?  We will actually have two tours: a bus tour to the international air cargo operations facility (next to the runways) and a short walking tour of the new (under-construction) international arrivals facility.

What should I bring or wear?  Business cards for networking. Wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather, since we'll be in and out of the terminal.

What snacks and food is provided? We'll have light breakfast, buffet lunch and coffee and light snacks in the afternoon. (Please let Jeff know if you have dietary restrictions)

How do I get to the conference center? The conference center is at the South end of the terminal. From the parking garage, walk across sky bridge #1 to the main terminal. Go up one level to Ticketing. The conference center is right above and straight ahead on the mezzanine level. Stairs to the mezzanine level are directly behind the Hawaiian and Lufthansa ticketing counter.
