Can a co-worker pick up my pass for me?
Yes. Just make sure they bring a photo ID and business card for verification. A printed receipt if even better for group pass pick-up.
Where is the best place to park at The Conference Center?
Seattle Interactive Conference takes place at The Conference Center in downtown Seattle at 804 Pike Street, Seattle WA 98101 (across the street from the main Convention Center building).
There are plenty of parking garages around The Conference Center. Learn more about the event parking information from the WSCC Website. The Main Entrance is on 8th Avenue, between Pike & Seneca Streets downtown Seattle.
I can’t access the App even though I confirmed my email. What’s the fix?
If you are having issues accessing the App make sure that you are using the email address that you purchased your ticket with. If you still can’t make it work then use this link from your mobile device.
How do I motivate my boss to let me go to this conference?
Beg! In the likely event that begging doesn’t work, use a bunch of marketing slang and acronyms like “The top interactive thought leaders will be here talking about [insert acronym] and how the landscape is evolving at a fast pace and we can’t be left out of these conversations.” Also, let them know that all of their competitors are going. That should do the job.
In all seriousness, SIC brings Seattle a world-class technology and digital media event to call our own. Your boss and your company will benefit from the things you'll learn and the connections you can make — and you don't have to book travel and hotel for places like New York, San Francisco, or Austin for SIC! In short, it's a great investment.
Do we need to sign-up for the sessions we want to attend?
Most sessions are first come first serve so be sure to arrive early to the sessions to ensure you have a seat. Workshops have the option to reserve a seat. Reservations can be made using a link in the session listing the SIC conference App. Seats are held until session start time and then are first come basis.
How do I know that the content will be relevant to me?
If you work at all in a company that has a website, app or idea then we'll have some special sauce for you to bring back to your office and maybe even make you look like a savior or rock star. We promise and if we don't deliver on our promise to provide rich, engaging and educational content then you can bash us on Twitter.
Are the sessions recorded and available to watch after the conference?
We do not record the sessions but will have the presentations available on our Slideshare account at: http://www.slideshare.net/seattleinteractive
