    3: Take time away

    Conference days are long and you take-in a lot of information. While it can be a lot of fun to learn and network, make sure to take time to step away from the conference venue and relax. After a day of sessions, consider a visit and dinner with UsableNet at Ruth's Chris Steak House - we'd love to have you. Reserve your seat. 

    4: After the show - tell the world,

    "I'm an Accessibility Ninja!"

    In digital age, a "Ninja" has become a term for "a person who is expert or highly skilled in a specified field or activity," according to Dictionary.com.  After the conference, show off  your dedication and advanced expertise. Register now to stop by booth 718 and discuss your Website accessibility with us. We'll save you an "I'm an Accessibility Ninja!" mug.
