General FAQs

Where should I go when I arrive on the morning of the event?

Visit the west side information desk on the first floor (street level) of the Cox Convention Center. Elevate staff will greet you with your lanyard name badge, complimentary drink ticket for the After-Party, attendee bag and program guide.

Arrive at 7:30 a.m. to enjoy a continental breakfast and to get seated for the kickoff to the morning session. We officially start the program at 8 a.m. in the second-floor ballroom.

What do I wear?

We recommend business casual.

I’m attending the Guns N’ Roses concert at the Chesapeake Arena the same night! Can I attend the After-Party and go to the concert?

Yes! Elevate attendees will be able to change attire and store personal belongings in a secured locker room at the Cox Arena prior to going across the street to the concert. Belongings may be picked up after the concert is over. Entrance to your special locker room will be at Entry 3 at the southwest entrance to the Arena. The locker room will be open from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after the concert concludes. Contact Meredith Manley if you would like to utilize this service!
