Accommodation

Can you recommend somewhere to stay?

We recommend staying at the conference hotel, Palmer House Hilton as this is the most convenient option. We're providing attendees a special room rate if you book by May 31. Make sure to mention Agile Testing Days USA when booking to obtain the discounted room rate. For further details click here: agiletestingdays.us/venue/.

Is the hotel accessible?

For people with disabilities, we do offer a wide array of guest rooms with either a roll-in shower or rooms with a bar in the bathtub. We do offer valet parking or self-parking at 55 East Monroe across the street which does have handicap accessible parking spots near the elevators. We also have a lower part of the front desk for anyone checking in in a wheel chair. This is located all the way to the left of our front desk.


Tutorials

I booked a certain tutorial but would like to visit another instead. Is this possible?

As soon as you realize this, please get in touch (clientsupport@techwell.com)! The tutorial presenters get updated with the number of attendees for their workshop and arrange it accordingly. The sooner they know there is a change in the attendee numbers, the better they are able to edit the planned group exercises etc.

I booked a full-day tutorial but need to leave before lunch. Is that okay?

We recommend staying for the full length of the tutorial as it is only of value for your learnings if you stay for the full workshop. It may also interrupt the group work.


Conference

Where can I find the program for ATD USA?

Please find the 2019 program here: agiletestingdays.us/program/.

Will there be free WiFi?

Yes, there will be free WiFi in the hotel.

Do I need a laptop?

Not in general, but some workshops may require a laptop or similar. If that is the case, you will find an indication within the online program. Please check the sessions you are interested in, if these require any devices. For note taking there will be pens and paper available.

Will be slides and videos available after the conference?

The speakers are able to upload their presentations already during the conference. After the conference, there will be a reminder again to all speakers to provide their presentations. All conference attendees will be able to download the available presentations from the online program. Please note, that not all speakers can or want to share their slides. Some will officially share a link to their slides on twitter or facebook.

Can I visit all talks and workshops as I want, or do I need to pre-register?

You don't have to pre-register, the workshops and talks fill up on a first come first serve basis. We reccommend you plan ahead for the workshops and talks you want to attend and arrive early as there is a restricted number of seats in each class.

Are all night activities included in the ticket fee/price?

Yes they are and we highly recommend to join us for them. The evening events are a great opportunity to network and to make new contacts and friends while having fun.

Do I need to check-in every morning?

No, once you check-in with the Agile Testing Days USA registration desk you're all set. However, please make sure to wear your badge everyday to gain entry to all conference events. If you have any questions feel free to visit the conference registration desk at any time during the designated hours.

Is meals included with my registration?
