Beyond Escape 2019 Santa Barbara - What You Need to Know

We are really excited to be hosting our 5th Beyond Escape User Conference in TWO separate locations! Last week, we hosted the conference in Sacramento, and next week, we’ll be hosting in Santa Barbara.

If you’ve been to past years’ conferences, you know that we’re all about California Casual. This year you’ll see many Escapees in flip flops or sandals. If you have a pair, feel free to wear them to beachy Santa Barbara.

On the left, Ken Custard, Software Developer at Escape sports some red “chucks” while on the right, Francisco Delgadillo, Financial Secretary at Monterey COE sports a pair of bright red running shoes with ombré effect.

Here are some tips to help you make the most of your Beyond Escape experience: 

  • Registration & Breakfast begin at 7:30 AM in the Grand Ballroom Foyer. Please join us for coffee and breakfast and to pick up your badge and conference program before the sessions begin at 8:00. Yes, 8:00 AM - that’s 30 minutes earlier than in the past!

  • Swag and T-Shirt Pick-up. This year you’ll be able to pick up your swag bag and conference t-shirt throughout the day, so you can relax and enjoy the conference.

  • Plan Your Day. Get ahead of the game and bookmark the mobile agenda on your device for fast access at the conference. You can see the full agenda, view session handouts (uploaded Sunday evening before the conference), get speaker information, and connect with other attendees! Enter your registration confirmation number and last name to sign in.

  • Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Hotel. We have included a map (below) and a link for driving directions to the hotel.

  • Parking. There is a large parking lot at the rear of the hotel. Discounted self-parking is $12 per day and valet parking is $35 per day. Street parking is very limited.

  • Dietary Restrictions. We have confirmed that our buffets will accommodate all dietary restrictions specified during registration. For your convenience, buffet items will be labeled Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free.

  • Attire. Have fun! We will be casual, with beachy attire and sandals. Show your style! Be comfortable! Hotel conference rooms can run on the cooler side. We recommend a sweater for those who may need one.

  • Sharing. Don’t forget that we are on Twitter @escapetechno and have a #BeyondEscape19 hashtag for the conference. Follow us. Share your photos on Twitter or Facebook. Join in the fun!

  • Payment. Please mail your checks directly to Escape Technology before the conference! No checks will be accepted at the conference.

Beyond Escape is designed to give you the information, highlights and real-world examples that will make your work in Escape Online go beyond the everyday. We are so excited that you have chosen to attend. 

Let the Beyond Escape experience begin!
