The venue consists of a main hall where our vendors are set-up and an area for everyone to gather with tables (introduction, eat lunch, etc.). Demonstrations take place in one of five classrooms. Each classroom is equipped with a large monitor, microphone and camera operator so participants have a good view of the demo. Please note, that although there are cameras in the demo rooms, no demos are recorded.

One additional room hosts the instant gallery where participants are encouraged to bring up to three pieces of their work to display.
