BEFORE LEAVING HOME


Pack your bags: You can expect June temperatures in sunny Las Vegas to range between the average high of 101°F and the average low of 73°F.  Attire for the 2018 NIRI Annual Conference is summer business casual, including special events such as the opening and closing celebrations. Comfort is key when participating in education sessions, walking the IR Showcase floor, and connecting with your peers. While it might be hot outside, don’t forget a light sweater for air-conditioned meeting rooms. 
 
Review the website and download the NIRI Events App to start deciding which sessions you’ll attend—there are so many to choose from that advanced preparation is essential to make the most of your conference experience.
  • Search for "NIRI Events App" in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, or text "NIRI" to 99000.
    • Login with the email address used for your registration
  • The app provides the most up-to-date information on all conference events, session and speaker details, list of attendees, maps, and more. You can also use the app to scan the QR code in each meeting room to track your attendance if you need a detailed record for claiming PDUs or other continuing education credits.
  • #NIRI18 is a paperless conference. Session presentations and handouts, if they have been provided, will be accessible via the app to download before, during, and after the conference. 
Check out what's new at #NIRI18: This year's Annual Conference is full of new experiences that will engage and delight you. Make sure you're ready to dive in onsite so you don't miss a thing! Look for fun, educational sessions like the IR Family Feud, the IR Situation Room, and IR Sales Training. Take control of your career at the Career Development Hub.
