In an effort to enhance security during the conference, ASCD requires that attendees wear their ASCD Empower18 name badges at all times during conference hours when attending conference events.
Badges must be worn to gain admission to ASCD Empower18 sessions, the Exhibit Show, official events, and the shuttle buses. Your badge not only indicates that you are fully registered for the conference, but it also serves as a courtesy to other registrants.
Please remember to be safety conscious and take off your badge when you are not at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center or attending ASCD Empower18 events.
To make sure that you have the best possible conference experience, we're excited to bring back the self-check-in name badge.
As always, our staff will be on hand to answer any questions. In addition to making the most of the available technologies in our industry and furthering our commitment to going green, this process has proven to streamline our registration check-in.
