3. Sessions by room

Want to know what other sessions are happening in the same room as others? Here’s a little- known tip: when looking at a session, click the room location’s button at top of the screen (eg, Convention Center: 216AB) to open up the convention center map. Here, you’ll see where in the convention center the session is taking place, and you’re able to scroll through a pop-up bubble of other sessions and activities happening in the same room.
