New Security Procedures for 2017

While attending the PA Conference for Women at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, please note that magnetometers will be in use and weapons of all kinds will be forbidden from the event.  Please refrain from bringing large bags containing unnecessary items to expedite your entry through security. Backpacks will be allowed, but are discouraged due to the amount of time it takes to search all of the compartments. Please consider bringing as few bags and packing as few items as possible.

Items like pepper spray, tasers or stun-guns, knives, guns, or any other projectiles, bottles or aerosol cans larger than travel size, or extended sharp items like long handled metal combs or screwdrivers, will be confiscated and not returned. Security will not store items for later pick up under any circumstances.

For the comfort and safety of all attendees, laser pointers, air-horns, whistles, and other noise makers are prohibited. 

Please be sure to have any necessary documentation when traveling with a service animal.

PennWomen App FAQ

How do I download the app?

Just search “Penn Women” in your app store, or use the appropriate download link below.

Download now on the App Store  Get it now on Google Play  BB-World-button   Windows-store-button

What if I already have the app from the 2016 Conference?

You do not need to download the app again; simply refresh the app by tapping “Menu” in the top left corner, then click on “Update App Now.”

How do I log in?

Tap “LOGIN” in the top-right corner, then simply type in your email address and click “Continue.”

How do I create a profile?

Once you’ve logged in by providing your email address, you can customize your profile by tapping “Profile.” Fill in as little or as much info as you’d like. You can also auto-fill your profile by clicking “Use Your LinkedIn Profile.”

How do I create My Schedule?

You can only create a schedule if you’ve logged in and have finished a profile. Once this is done, simply tap the session you’d like to add to your schedule from the AGENDA screen, and then click “+ Add to Your Schedule.”

How do I view my schedule after I’ve added sessions?

Tap the Menu icon in the top left corner of the app; then “My Schedule.” OR visit the “My Schedule” module on the Home Screen.

If I add sessions to my personal schedule on the app, does that mean I’m guaranteed space in that session?

NO. We do not require or allow attendees to reserve space in any session. Creating a schedule on the app simply allows you to better plan out your busy day. You are not guaranteed space in a session when you add it to your schedule on the app.

What are the codes that follow the session titles in the agenda? (e.g., POE, W, MC)

Great question! These codes describe the type of session:

     POE = Panel of Experts (a thought leader and three panelists engage in a discussion)

     W = Workshop (one speaker, delivering a presentation and providing takeaways on the topic.)

     MC = Moderated Conversation (these sessions are typically “fireside chat” style conversations, consisting of a moderator, and a main speaker.)

How can I connect with a specific attendee?

Simply tap “Menu” on the top left hand corner of your app, then click on “Attendees.” You can search attendees by name, company, or title. You can also send a direct, private message to someone you’re chatting with inside the Conference Community, by clicking on their name, then choosing “Send them a Message.”

How do I use the Conference Community feature?

Under “Menu,” or on the Home Screen, you’ll find the Conference Community. Here, you have a really unique opportunity to reach out to ask questions, learn about job opportunities, or just network and learn more about fellow attendees. Think of this as our very own “NextDoor.”

What’s the red dot under “Menu?”

When you see a red dot on your home screen, that means the app needs to be updated. Simply click on “Menu” on the top left, then click on “Update App Now.”

What if I have more questions about the app?

Within the Attendees section, send a direct message to Danielle Leshinski.
