Your Annual Teaching Plan Is Here — Meet The New Scope and Cycle 🗺️

Orange Conference 2024 Attendee Resources

You’re coming to Orange Conference!

Here is everything you need to prepare for the experience.

Before You Arrive

Mark Your Calendars
You’re likely aware of the dates by now, but, since this is a first for us, we are being extra diligent to ensure everyone knows we’re starting on a Tuesday this year! Orange Conference is giving you a new midweek experience to help you get back in time to prep for Sunday. So mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 23rd, through Thursday, April 25th.

Study the Agenda
The full conference schedule can be found here and in the Orange Experiences app. Don’t forget that you can even filter by the sessions you’re registered for for a more customized glance at your week. 

Use Your Workshop Toolbox
We have created several resources to help you and your team plan the BEST workshop Wednesday.

  • Workshop FAQs –  Answers to your most common workshop questions
  • Workshop Quiz – This short quiz will help you determine which workshop track is right for you based on what matters most to you today.
  • Pre-Workshop Surveys – Once you save your seats, submit any questions you have for your speaker using the pre-workshop survey attached to each session in the OC app.

Watch the OC 24 Video Tutorials
This video library will be updated frequently to guide you through all workshop and ticket-related processes.

Familiarize Yourself with the Arena Policies
As you prepare to join us, it will be vital for you to familiarize yourself with Gas South Arena’s event security and safety policies. New and most importantly, this year, they are enforcing the following:

  • Allowed – CLEAR BAGS ONLY (12” x12” x 6”), small clutches, diaper bags, refillable water bottles, and medically necessary items.
  • Not Allowed – No backpacks, briefcases, purses, or drawstrings larger than 12″ x 12″ x 6″ will be permitted. 
  • The safest and fastest way to enter the venue is not to bring a bag at all.
  • For our event only, the arena has approved electronic devices larger than a cell phone (like laptops), but they must be able to fit into your clear bag.
  • View all arena policies here.
