  • You may leave your booths set up overnight, but please keep in mind they will be outside and subject to weather. Please do not leave any valuables at the booth. 
  • Dress in layers! We're anticipating temps to be in the 50's, but being November the temp could change dramatically. Should the weather be forecasted to be very cold, IMBA will do our best to provide limited outdoor hearters around the expo area.

  • Thursday (11/10): summit attendees only
