How to Prepare for Your Conference Experience:

  • Conference App – All attendees will receive an email the week of October 17th inviting them to the 2022 ECE-RJ Conference App using the email provided during registration. Please follow the instructions in the email to download the Whova App and enter the code to access the conference. 

  • Session Registration will take place in the app once it goes live. All attendees will be able to register for breakout sessions and coaching sessions in the app.

  • What to Wear – Most people dress in business casual, comfortable clothes. Planning for layers is recommended as you never know how hot or cold a given meeting room might be, and the evenings in San Diego cool down a bit. San Diego Weather
