CONFERENCE COUNTDOWN

Online registration ends Friday, Parc 55 sold out

IRDC Conference

Making last-minute arrangements to join us next week in San Francisco? Here's what you need to know:

  • Online registration ends Friday, September 2 at 5:00 PM Eastern. After that, you'll need to register on-site at the Parc 55 Wyndham, the conference hotel. Come to the Cyril Magnin Foyer beginning Tuesday, September 6 at 6:00.
  • The Parc 55 Wyndham is sold out. The InterContinental San Francisco, which is 0.3 miles or about 7 minutes from the Parc 55, still has available rooms for $180 per night. Adjacent to the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco's SoMa (South of Market) neighborhood, the InterContinental is an easy walk to SFMOMA, Union Square and plenty of great restaurants and retail. Book here.
  • Remember to bring a good supply of business cards and comfy shoes for exploring the city's retail scene.
  • Dress for the conference is business casual. For the Welcome Reception and IRDC Party, you can stick with business casual or wear whatever you would for a fun night out with friends. Either way, bring a jacket or sweater; San Francisco's average high in early September is 71 degrees, average low, 56.
