Stock Up Your Pit Crew

Every good pit crew is equipped with conference essentials: pain relief (for post-party headaches and tired legs), band-aids, business cards, comfy shoes, and a water bottle. If you’ve forgotten something crucial, like ChapStick or mints, don’t fret—head to the EXPO hall and snag a swag bag.
