Arriving at KansasFest

Posted Sun, Jul. 12th 2015 in News

KansasFest 2015 is here.  Bags are packed and people are moving.  Here are some details that will help you as you arrive at Rockhurst University.

We will be in Corcoran Hall on the campus of Rockhurst University.  Please see the campus map.  Notice the one way streets that may affect your travel.  When you arrive, please park in front (north) of the building along the street.  The doors will be locked.  Knock and somebody will let you in.  Dagen has created a helpful video showing our building and parking.

Registration is open on Tuesday between 12PM – 4PM and on Wednesday between 1PM – 1:30PM.  If you arrive outside those times, please visit the Rockhurst staff at the front desk for your room assignment, key, and access card.  KansasFest staff will finish your check-in later.

After unloading, please relocate your car to the gated lot just east of the building.  Your access card will open the gate.

On Tuesday, we will gather at 4:00PM in the building lobby for a dinner outing to Jack Stack BBQ (Freight House location) and Lidia’s Italian restaurant.

On Wednesday, activities kickoff at 11 AM and the keynote begins at 1:30 PM.  Every day, breakfast is 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM in the Massman Hall cafeteria.

We will not provide printed schedules.  The schedule is available in several formats.  We’ll update all of these schedule formats except the PDF with last minute changes.  We’ll announce changes before sessions begin and maintain a whiteboard in the lobby with written notices.  It’s also helpful to monitor the mailing list.

If you have any questions or problems, please ask.  Members of the planning committee will wear black lanyards.  We have many regular attendees who can help, too, so don’t hesitate to introduce yourself.

Please ask before filming, photographing, or streaming.  People with red lanyards have declined permission, and it’s always courteous to ask regardless of lanyard color.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
