Registration & Housing


Q. What should I wear?
A. Dress comfortably (business casual) and wear comfortable shoes.  We also recommend that you dress in layers, as temperatures in the meeting rooms can vary.

Q. Where is the lost & found?
A. Once you are on site, please check with the NKF Information Booth in the registration area for information about lost and found.

Q. Can my friend or family member attend just the Exhibit Hall without purchasing a full conference registration?
A. Yes, you may purchase an Exhibit Hall Only pass for $75 on site, which entitles you a single day of access to the Exhibit Hall.  Please note: children under the age of 18 are not permitted in the Exhibit Hall or conference meeting rooms.

Q. Is there free Wi-Fi in the convention center?
A. Yes! 

Q. Where can I find the free food?
A. Meals are provided during pre-conference courses, lunch workshops, and breakfast, lunch and dinner symposia, as well as during various exhibit hall activities. Look for the “meal served” symbol next to a session or activity in your program-at-a-glance, or check the SCM mobile app for additional information.  

Q. Are there handouts available for the sessions?
A. NKF has made many efforts to go green.  While we do not print handouts, presentations are available through the SCM mobile app (based on approval from the speakers).  The SCM app will be available on mobile or to view on the dashboard of your computer about a month before the start of the meeting. Speaker presentations will be uploaded shortly before each session begins. 

Q. Can I attend any session that I want?
A. You are welcome to attend any session on any program track, however sessions not listed on your program track may not be approved through your disciplines’ accrediting agency.

Q. How do I track my credits and get my certificate?
A.  Use the barcode on your name badge to scan into each session (you’ll see the scanners as you enter the meeting room).  This is how we track your attendance. At the conclusion of the meeting, you can access your certificate by going to https://www.expobadge.com/certification/NKF2019
