Whether SIR 2019 is your first or 10th SIR meeting, follow the advice listed below and arrive in Austin ready for a great experience.
SIR 2019 mobile app
SIR 2019 does not offer a printed program, so please download the app—available now—to your mobile device in order to make the most of your meeting. Use the online personal planner to schedule your meeting weeks in advance. The schedule is subject to change, but the app will be automatically updated. Visit your favorite app store and search for “SIR Meetings.” If you have last year’s app installed, just update it to view 2019 information!
Stay up to date during the conference by following #SIR19ATX on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Use the hashtag today and follow the Society of Interventional Radiology, @sirspecialists, on social media.
All badges must be picked up on site. Registration is in the 4th Street lobby by the Solar Atrium. You’ll need your confirmation email and a government-issued photo ID. Use your original confirmation email on site to scan at Scan-and-go and pick up your badge. Note: Keep your name badge on at all times for conference activities. You will not be allowed to enter sessions, the Expo or any receptions without it.
Stay for the whole conference
Every day is filled with valuable learning opportunities, so avoid the temptation to skip the final day—you might miss a real practice-changing session.
New this year! Attendees will now be able to claim their own meeting credits via the SIR Learning Center starting Saturday, March 23. To receive credits for sessions attended, attendees will select the day of the session and choose each session attended. The system will only allow you to claim credits for one session per time block. To assist in tracking your attended sessions, attendees are encouraged to either use the personal planner or tap the star next to sessions in the mobile app to add it to their schedule.
Attend networking events, including the opening reception, enhanced Expo breaks and more. These are unique opportunities to meet colleagues from around the world.
Use the mobile app to make a list of companies to visit. All exhibitors are listed on the app, in the online planner and in SIR Today. And be sure to visit SIR Central, booth #639, to connect with SIR staff, get answers to questions, watch compelling conversations and pick up some SIR swag!
Snacks and lunch break
Sometimes you need an energy boost. Stop by the SIR 2019 Expo and refuel during 30-minute morning and afternoon breaks. And, some of Austin’s best food trucks will be serving lunch in the Expo.
A lactation room is available on the third floor near the SIR Foundation Donor Lounge.
Family and guests
Spouses, family and guests are not permitted at any conference event unless you have specifically registered them for that event. Guest registration is not available for children under 16.
