Printed tickets were NOT issued. Each registered attendee will have a name badge to pick up from the event registration table, which will serve as the attendee's "ticket.” In addition, a guest list will verify registration.
Because of this name badge system, if any of your attendee names are still “TBD,” it is imperative that you please provide me with their name/company/contact information ASAP!
The closest garage is the Walnut Street Garage.
The garage entrance is at the corner of Walnut Street and Court Street. (Address to enter into GPS: 215 Walnut Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101)
This garage is attached to the hotel. On the garage elevators, select level “A” for the Hilton, then follow our directional signs to our registration table.
If you bring your parking ticket with you to the event, you can stop at the Hilton's Business Center/Gift Shop (or front desk) for $5 discounted parking (for this garage only). There are only two attendant stations at the exit, which become very busy when everyone leaves our event. Please expect a delay in both entering and exiting the garage.
The main entrée will be a combination of beef and seafood with potatoes and vegetables. Dinner service will also include a salad, bread and dessert. If you declared a special dietary consideration at the time of registration, a special meal ticket will be included with your name badge to be given to your server when you sit for dinner.
