Welcome to DDW 2012!
Welcome to San Diego and Digestive Disease Week 2012! Here is some information you’ll need to make your first day go smoothly.
Registration and Materials
Registration is open in Hall D Lobby of the convention center. The hours are noon through 8 p.m. today, 7 a.m–6 p.m. Saturday through Monday, and 7 a.m–4 p.m. Tuesday. If you’ve already received your badge in the mail before the meeting (it was in a yellow envelope)—you don’t need to go to the main registration area. Just take the entire envelope containing your badge and all of your tickets to one of the materials pick-up areas, located in Hall B, D and G Lobbies, and in DDW’s headquarter hotels. There, you can pick up your agenda book, plus the badge holder and ribbon that you will need to enter all scientific sessions, the Poster Hall and the Exhibit Hall.
If you’re staying in or near the Manchester Grand Hyatt, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina or Omni San Diego, you can pick up your materials there during registration hours. Take a look at the hotel map to see how close you are to one of these hotels.
If you didn’t receive your badge in the mail prior to the meeting, or if you need to have a change or correction made, please go to the registration area in Hall D Lobby.
We strongly encourage you to pick up your materials today, if possible, to avoid tomorrow’s rush.
Complimentary shuttle service is provided between San Diego Convention Center and the official DDW hotels. Shuttle information signs will be in the lobby of each official hotel. The shuttle map shows which hotels have shuttle service and where the stop is located.
