Exhibitor Booths

Please be sure to visit our exhibitors on Thursday, October 17, in the Great Hall. A list of exhibitors is included in the conference program, on Attendify.

Learning Market/Open Space

A Learning Market is an opportunity for everyone to contribute and learn in short, smaller, more intimate sessions that are discussion-based. We will have a place where attendees can write down a topic they’d like to connect with others around, and then during the Learning Market workshops attendees can join whatever workshop that they’re interested in. The Learning Markets will occur on the afternoon of October 17 and we will provide more information at noon on October 17. Sign-up sheets will be available at that time for interested participants.

Resort Transportation

There is a courtesy resort shuttle available 24 hours a day and bikes available for free to use throughout the resort. Parking is available near conference facilities and workshops.


If you included dietary needs when you registered—gluten free, vegan, or vegetarian—there will be a meal ticket for you when you pick up your bag at the Registration & Information table. This meal ticket is for the plated lunch on October 17. All the other meals are buffet and we have tried to have a variety of food available for you to choose from. If you have severe allergies, please check in with wait staff as we were not able to meet all the dietary needs listed.

Program Changes and Messages

Program changes may occur and will be announced in advance whenever possible on Attendify and on the conference agenda message board at the Registration & Information table. Please also check the message board for any messages left for attendees.

Electronic Devices

Please silence your phone and any other electronic devices during workshops and plenary events.

Conference Ask

We ask that you demonstrate an understanding and appreciation for diversity and celebrate the differences of conference attendees. All attendees should be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of gender, language, race, identity, ability, religion, age, political beliefs, sexual orientation and socioeconomic level. Learn more in the Thoughts on Making the Most of Your Time resource.


Please respect the rights of those you are sharing this space and experience with. Please ask for permission to take photos as well as provide transparency on how the photos/videos will be used and the platforms they will be posted on. To that end, there will be a photographer present at the conference on Thursday, October 17. They will be taking photos of the panels and activities. The photos may be shared after the conference on our website, newsletter, and other TIO social media.

Workshop “Take Away” Cards

In your name badge holder (behind your name badge) and also in workshop rooms, there are cards to fill out at the end of each workshop. Please list one “take away” (something you learned) at the workshop you attended. On the card we are also asking that you check the system/sector that is relevant to your work and the workshop number or name. Please turn these in to the moderator before leaving each workshop. These will be used to create a vision board for the last day of the conference. Additional “take away” cards are available at the Registration & Information table or with the moderator in the workshop.


Sunriver Resort has ADA lodging, free ADA shuttle (please note: when calling for a shuttle mention that you will need an ADA shuttle), and accessibility to all conference events. Please note that some doors may need to be propped open for accessibility and we will try to make sure this happens for those specific events. There are elevators as well for those who need additional support. Please contact Sunriver Resort for any questions or additional information you may need.


Please recycle, when possible, paper, glass, and cans throughout the Resort. Conference badges and unused materials can be returned to the Registration & Information table.
