New Security Procedures for 2017

While attending the TX Conference for Women at the Austin Convention Center, please note that magnetometers will be in use and weapons of all kinds will be forbidden from the event.  Please refrain from bringing large bags containing unnecessary items to expedite your entry through security. Backpacks will be allowed, but are discouraged due to the amount of time it takes to search all of the compartments. Please consider bringing as few bags and packing as few items as possible.

Items like pepper spray, tasers or stun-guns, knives, guns, or any other projectiles, bottles or aerosol cans larger than travel size, or extended sharp items like long handled metal combs or screwdrivers, will be confiscated and not returned. Security will not store items for later pick up under any circumstances.

For the comfort and safety of all attendees, laser pointers, air-horns, whistles, and other noise makers are prohibited.
