Find and Save Your QR Code
After registering for the event, you should receive an order confirmation email with a pdf attachment with your QR code. Make sure to keep it handy, whether it be printed or a screenshot saved to your phone. You may need to show that at the entrance to scan for checking in and printing your badge.

Download the Attendee App
In some cases, event organizers will need you to download the attendee app available for download for iOS and Android users; please take a look at the instructions they give you to know if you'll need it or not. You can also get your QR code from the app by clicking the ticket icon on the event. Click here to learn more about the attendee app.
Add the Event to Your Calendar
Make reminders to ensure you don't forget that you signed up for the event. In the email you receive, there may be options to add the event to your calendar.
On the event page, you'll see the agenda. You can bookmark sessions that you want to attend, and they will all be listed on your personalized My Sessions agenda. You can take a look at this article for more information on bookmarking sessions.
Check the Event Venue
The event venue is usually shown in your order confirmation email. Sometimes, a map is even provided. Check it out so you can plan out your schedule. Consider your travel time, mode of transportation, and routes to get there, check if they have parking provided, and scope out the nearby hotels and restaurants.
Participate in the Event
Once you're in the event, maximize the opportunity to network with other attendees and discuss shared interests. Participate during sessions, and feel free to ask questions if you have any. We also highly encourage that you answer event surveys so that organizers can improve any future events according to your feedback.
If the event has exhibitor booths, you can present your QR code to them to share your personal information. If the event uses the attendee app, exhibitors can scan your QR code through the app, and it will automatically get the information you gave during registration (name and email).
The image below is what exhibitors will see after scanning your QR code.
