Attendee Toolkit

#ITEAustin2019 Mobile App Powered by Stantec

The #ITEAustin2019 mobile will be your way to stay up-to-date on changes to the schedule of events, to locate attendees, to learn about exhibitors, and to earn PDH credit for sessions that you attend.

To download the app:

  • Using your mobile device, go to expopass.com/ios or expopass.com/android and search for Expo Pass. (Note: if you used the app during last year's ITE Annual Meeting and Exhibit in Minneapolis and still have the app on your phone, you should be able to log-in directly without re-downloading the app.)
  • Use the email associated with your ITE account (the one you used to register for this meeting). You will receive an email with a 4-digit code to verify your account.
  • Please make sure you allow for notifications from this app.
  • If you have any difficulty with logging in, please contact see Zach Pleasant at ITE Registration Desk (Grand Ballroom, 4th Floor)

Troubleshooting Tips

  • Please make sure your settings allow apps to default to the current time zone so that the times of the sessions and activities reflect correctly.
  • If you are not getting updates, please log out of the app and then log back in.

Quiet Room

The Quiet Room is a multipurpose space where you can go to get relief from stress and over-stimulation, charge your phone, or simply sit quietly to process the information from the technical sessions that day. We do ask that the room remain quiet and not be used for phone calls or activities that might disturb others.

Ticket Refund Policy

Tickets for individual events are sold on a space-available basis and may be purchased at the ITE Registration Desk (located on the 4th floor). No refunds are issued for unused tickets, whether purchased as part of the registration package or separately.

Payment Information

On-site registration and event fees may be paid by cash (U.S. Dollars only), check (for the exact amount), or credit card (American Express, Mastercard, or Visa). Make checks payable to ITE. ITE does not accept Discover.

Cell Phones

Please be courteous to fellow meeting attendees: set your phones to vibrate before entering sessions. If you need to make or take a call, please step out of a session

Attire

Participants are encouraged to wear business casual attire during the meeting’s technical program events. Attendees are encouraged to come to the “Welcome to Austin” Opening Reception in their best Texas/country-western attire. Feel free to dress down for the ITE Traffic Bowl competition and the Closing Reception at Maggie Mae’s.

Here is a list of suggested attractions in the Austin area.

Austin has a treasure-trove of places to visit and explore for individuals of all ages! The below list includes opportunities for individuals and families. 

Congress Avenue Bridge

From March to November, nearly 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats head to the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin, making it one of the largest bat colonies in North America. Go to the banks under the bridge at dusk to watch them fly around, or opt for a bat kayak tour for the best viewing.

Inner Space Cavern

This natural underground cavern was discovered by construction workers building the I-35 freeway. Choose from one of the guided tours (we like the one-hour version) and learn the difference between stalagmites and stalactites while you explore the cavern’s Ice Age animal fossils.

Website

Austin Toy Museum

This brand-new toy museum is just that: a place to ogle vintage toys, action figures, retro toys, classic toys, or console video games of childhoods past or present. Though seemingly targeting fanboys/girls, the museum is in fact focused on childhood education and also has a lot of hands-on activities, like vintage video games.

Website

Dinosaur Park

This outdoor museum boasts life-size dinosaur replicas, like a 2-foot-long Compsognathus and an 85-foot-long Brachiosaurus. A tree-lined path takes you on an educational trek, and the kiddos will also like participating in a fossil dig and playing at the playground.

Website

Playland Skate Center

Since opening in 1973, Playland Skate Center has been the place to get your roller skate on. (At 27,500 square feet, it's also the largest in Austin.) In addition to keeping the rink in great shape, it features a light show, fog machine, and state-ofthe-art sound system.

Website

Jourdan-Bachman Pioneer Farms

Pioneer Farms is another longtime establishment—one that makes learning about Central Texas fun (really!). That’s because it’s immersive, offers participatory events, and, most important, has a petting zoo. If you don’t make an event there, you can still enjoy its themed historic areas on self-guided walking tours; they include everything from an 1841 Tonkawa encampment to an 1899 rural village.

Website

Mount Bonnell

Head to the 5.1-acre Covert Park at Mount Bonnell for beautiful views at the highest point in the city. Even kids can make the 102-stair climb up to the peak, and the trail to the top is only about a third of a mile.

Movie Locations

The Austin area has served as the location for a number of popular movies, including Dazed and Confused, Office Space, and Boyhood.
