Travel Documents & Airport Check-In

Airline check-in locations require a government-issued photo ID for you and your guest. Airport security checkpoints require all passengers to display both a boarding pass and photo ID before proceeding to the gate. In order to avoid problems at airport check-in, make sure that the name on your ID exactly matches the name on your airline ticket and that your ID has not expired.

You must obtain your boarding pass before proceeding to the checkpoint. We recommend that you arrive at your home airport at least two hours before your scheduled flight time. With additional security screening measures, check-in lines can be long and airlines will generally not accept baggage within 45 minutes of takeoff.

Final Trip Documents

These will be mailed out approximately two weeks prior to departure. To ensure that you receive your final trip documents, please ensure that you provide your full and correct mailing address during registration.

Suggested Dress

Business casual is the recommended attire for all sessions and most evening events. Business casual includes collared shirts and khakis, no jeans. Meeting rooms tend to be cool; a light jacket or sweater is recommended. Comfortable walking shoes are a must in Nashville and the Opryland Hotel.

For the Nashville Nights events on Friday evening business attire is recommended. Women will be comfortable in cocktail dresses or pantsuits. Suit and tie are most appropriate for men.
