Glad you could make it to RenderATL 2022. Feel free to message us in discord if you have questions but make sure you read this doc before you ask; we might have already answered it. We have taken the time to gather all the essential information all in one place. The strategies and tips provided below will help you navigate the conference. The FAQ tries to answer your questions before you even ask them :)
Where is everything?
The conference is located at the Gathering Spot and will take place from June 1st, 2022 - June 3rd.
All the speaking sessions will be located at the Gathering Spot. Inside the Gathering Spot there are three stages: East Atlanta, West Atlanta, and OTP. The location of each talk can be found under the time. The speaking schedule can be found here.
For events taking place outside of the Gathering Spot, the locations are located under the name of the event. The event schedule can be found here.
I am shy, and I need help making small talk!
We don't bite, promise! But, seriously, this is a safe space. Feel free to be yourself and talk about the things that interest you. You are amongst family.
You will find that you have things in common with many different people, and that's amazing. Put yourself out there. Talk about your love for anime, lawn care, hiking, or dogs. It doesn't matter.
One more thing, imposter syndrome is not allowed here. If you see someone amazing sitting next to you, say hello. Who knows what could happen.
What time does the conference start and end?
RenderATL will begin on June 1st, 2022 at 10am with workshop sessions.
If you have not purchased workshop tickets, then the event will begin for you at 8pm that same day with the Render Roof Presented by Indeed @ Skyline Park (Ponce City Market Roof).
The conference will end on June 3rd at 5pm, with after hours events going until 2am.
What should I bring?
Ideally, as little as possible, you won't have anywhere to store your items. You will receive a tote from us at the conference, and you can use that to store your items and purchases from the gift shop.
If you bring some tech, make sure you bring your charger. Try to label your charger before the conference to avoid confusion.
What will I eat?
Now, if we told you, that would ruin the surprise. However, we can tell you that if you filled out the survey about diet during registration, your dietary concerns have been noted and included in the food plans.
Food and drinks are unlimited at Render.
Is parking free at the venue?
Yes, parking at The Gathering Spot (event center) is free for all attendees. No parking sticker/stamp is required; park wherever you want on the premises.
Where should I sit?
Anywhere that isn't blocking the flow of traffic. During the speaking sessions, try to sit in the front. It makes the speakers feel nice :)
