Fall weather in Sacramento is spectacular! Plan on warm, 75 to 80-degree(F) days, and cooler, 50-degree nights — so, short sleeves or layers will probably be comfortable for most. There is a chance of rain on Wednesday, so don’t forget to pack a light jacket or umbrella! Keep an eye on the forecast for up-to-date information.
As you prep your suitcase for #heweb18, know that dress at the conference is business casual – with a strong emphasis on the “casual.” Jeans, tees, khakis and comfy kicks are common, too, both during the conference sessions and at evening events.
Remember, session rooms can be chilly, so you may want to throw in a sweater for daytime wear.

The #heweb18 schedule is jam-packed with 100+ great sessions. Do you know what you’re going to attend? Use our online schedule planner to build your conference calendar:

Check-in and registration
Your first stop at HighEdWeb 2018 should be the registration desk on the third floor concourse of the Sacramento Convention Center. Check in to grab your conference badge, all the important info you need, and your conference gifts/swag.
- Sunday, Oct. 21: 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Monday, Oct. 22: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.
NOTE: For Annual Conference attendees registered for one of the Academies (Leadership, Content/UX, or Technical): Report to the Academies registration table on the third floor of the Sacramento Convention Center between 8 – 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, to check in to your Academy. You will also need to check in separately on Sunday or Monday at the main Conference registration desk for the HighEdWeb Annual Conference.
When you check in at the registration desk, you will receive your conference ID badge. Your ID badge must be worn at all presentation sessions, meals, and all conference after-hour events. Your badge is your golden ticket of admission to all the fun, as well as your Conference program and your source for lot of critical information — so be sure to keep it handy!
