Where should I park?

There is free parking in multiple locations near the convention center. You can view a map of these public parking lots.

What is the attire for the conference?

Dress for the event is business casual. Participants are encouraged to dress in layers as we cannot control the temperature of the meeting rooms.

What if some of the sessions I need are virtual, but I am attending the conference in Hot Springs?

There will be designated space in Exhibit Halls C/D at the Hot Springs Convention Center to sit and watch a virtual session. Participants would need to bring their own laptop and headphones.

Will virtual attendees be able to participate in the face-to-face sessions?

While virtual participants are not able to attend the face-to-face event, they can participate in the livestreamed sessions.

What are the options for lunch?

There will not be a lunch break in the conference schedule. Participants can choose to take a lunch break during a session, or grab lunch and bring it into a session. On-site lunch will be available for purchase at the convention center concession stand (view menu) or the Hotel Hot Springs restaurant ($14 for chicken nacho bar on Monday or salad & potato bar on Tuesday). There will be designated space in Exhibit Halls C/D to sit and eat food purchased onsite. There are also several restaurants within walking distance of the convention center including the food truck area about one block away.

Will PD credit be offered?

It is up to district discretion to provide professional development credit, as no certificates will be provided by the ADE.

Will the sessions be recorded?

Conference sessions will not be recorded. However, many presenters upload copies of their slideshow presentations to the online schedule.
