We are excited that you are coming to #IS18 tomorrow and want to make it the best possible experience for you from start to finish!

UPDATED SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Here is the updated schedule of the day’s events.

Parking


Parking is free in the Loop Central Garage at 4828 Loop Central Drive, Houston, TX 77027. It’s easiest to enter off of Westpark. There will be a sign on Westpark to guide you to the garage entrance. You will need to get a parking ticket before entering. Map

Parking for our event is on the rooftop level only. If you park anywhere else, you risk having your vehicle towed. Be sure to use caution when entering and driving through the parking garage and observe all the posted signs, and please do not leave any valuables in your car. HoustonIMA and Loop Central are not responsible for your car or your belongings.

If you are arriving by taxi, Uber or Lyft, please have the driver bring you to the main entrance at the Houston Chronicle campus via the second driveway marked by Visitor Lot at 4747 Southwest Freeway, Houston, TX 77027. Please note that no spaces are available at the Houston Chronicle campus for the event.

SHUTTLE

Once you park, take the elevator to the first floor and follow the signs to the shuttle station. You can’t miss it! Look for a big black canopy and H/IMA signage.

A 34-seat shuttle bus will take you to the conference site at the Houston Chronicle. We are providing continuous shuttle service from 7 a.m. to 7:15 p.m. approximately every 10 minutes. Be sure to allow 10 extra minutes to take the shuttle from the parking garage to the Houston Chronicle.

When you arrive at the entrance to the Chronicle, the security guard at the door will let you in. Check-in and registration is in the lobby just beyond the front desk. There is one station for VIP Ticket Holders and two other stations — one for last names that begin with A-L and one for last names that begin with M-Z. You must check in to pick up your badge and other items.

If you are a VIP or Marketer’s Choice Ticket Holder, be sure to pick up your conference tote bag, courtesy of Pierpont Communications, too!

WIFI and POWERING YOUR DEVICES

WiFi is provided by Houston Chronicle. Simply login to the “Hearst Guest” network. No passcode is needed. Please be sure to sufficiently charge your devices and bring your own backup power sources.

All lunches come with chips, a cookie and a beverage.

HAPPY HOUR

Immediately following the event, Happy Hour is onsite with light appetizers provided by H/IMA and beverages courtesy of Topo Chico, Tito’s Vodka and 8th Wonder Brewery. You will receive two drink tickets at check in to redeem for wine, beer, vodka-based mixed drinks or sparkling water.

JUST FOR FUN!

Our generous presenting sponsor, Houston Chronicle Media Group, has arranged to have photography staff onsite to take complimentary headshots for your LinkedIn profile, and has also arranged to have a “selfie booth” for those of you who are in the mood for a little fun. In addition, the Houston Chronicle has a special gift for you just for coming — a free 6-month subscription to HoustonChronicle.com!

IT’S GOING TO BE A FABULOUS DAY — RAIN OR SHINE!

See you soon,
The H/IMA Board
