What's the difference between The Commons' Open and Accessible Hours?

  • Open Hours  Exhibit spaces are staffed by artist/managers – think ‘open for business’.
  • Accessible Hours  Exhibitors and presenters alike may browse or hold meetings within The Commons, while everyone has the chance to join in special events – think The Commons is ‘accessible’ but not necessarily staffed for business.
    • Exhibitors  When you step away from your exhibit to take advantage of other conference activities, it’s a good idea to leave a printed note that states you are attending other events, the time you expect to be back, your contact number, and a request that presenters leave a business card if they take materials in your absence.
    • Presenters  When you browse the hall and come upon something you are interested in at an exhibit, please be considerate and leave a business card or personal note if you walk away with materials.
