I’m so ready to go to DCON! What should I pack?

Refer to this Packing List.


Once my bus arrives at the hotel, what do we do?

A member of the Registration Committee will board your bus and give you specific directions. Generally speaking, all members should give their forms (if not turned in ahead of time) to the chaperone to turn in when registering. Rooms are not ready until 3 PM, so make sure to take some pictures in front of our photo backdrop and participate in the registration games found in your program book and on the DCON App.


DCON interferes with my prom/Grad Bash/other event. Can I leave DCON and return?

Under specific conditions, you will be allowed to leave the hotel. However, you must turn in a notarized Permission to Leave form ahead of DCON to give us enough time to evaluate your request.


What food should I expect?

Meals are included on Friday and Saturday, including a banquet meal on Saturday evening. If you prefer a gluten free or vegetarian diet, ensure that your advisor specifies this when registering your club. Unfortunately, kosher meal requests cannot be accommodated.


Is there a Starbucks at the hotel?

There is a coffee shop that serves Starbucks coffee on the way from rooms to the Convention Center.


Is a curfew enforced?

For everyone’s safety, students must be in their assigned rooms from 12:00 AM to 5:00 AM. Chaperones are responsible for ensuring that their assigned students are in the correct area.


Will there be leisure time? If so, how can I spend it?

There is definitely enough time to bond with other Key Clubbers outside of scheduled activities. Many attendees choose to spend any down time either hanging out around the convention center, swimming in the pool, spending time in the lobby, or going back to their rooms for a quick nap.


Is there Wi-Fi?

In all hotel rooms free Wi-Fi is provided. In convention areas, however, there is no free Wi-Fi access.
