Check in

Skip the check-in desks! Hotel check-in is even easier this year. When you arrive, head straight to the Etess Arena to drop off your luggage and then make your way to the Whammy Bar outside of Sound Waves Theatre for registration. During the lunch period, hotel check-in will take place nearby inside the arena. Anyone who does not get a room immediately during this time will receive a text message when their room is available.

If you are planning on staying additional nights beforehand, please proceed to the hotel front desk to check in as you normally would. Have your room confirmation number ready and let them know you are staying an additional night for the CDI Kickoff.

NOTE: All rooms are covered by CDI and no incidentals will be charged to you. However, if you do wish to charge items to your room please bring a personal credit card to the front desk to add to your reservation.



On the day of the CDI Kickoff, we are asking all employees to be dressed business casual (YES - jeans are OK!). This includes the morning breakfast, through the final breakout sessions during the day.

At night during our reception, you can choose to remain in your attire or change into cocktail attire - whatever you feel most comfortable in! Stay tuned for more information on the end-of-night events.
