Conference Pass-holder Pick-up Info

With only a couple days to go before the conference starts, it's time to start thinking about when you should pick up your pass! Bellow you'll find times and locations for your pass pick-up. At our pick-up locations, you'll receive a conference wrist-band, a name badge with a lanyard, a conference goodie bag, and a conference schedule. 

Remember, don't take your wrist-band off as it's how all the venues and conference locations will be confirming that you're a pass-holder. Our pass pick-up locations are:

  • Beat Drop - 1120 17 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2T 0B4
  • Studio Bell, home of the National Music Centre - 850 4 St SE, Calgary, AB T2G 1R1

If you're going to be checking out the Wednesday night pre-AEMCON shows at Habitat and Nite Owl, there will be a guest list with pass-holder names at the door. No wrist-band needed!
