FAQ

1. Will WiFi be available during the conference?
Yes! You’ll be able to access WiFi throughout the event space. Details will be provided on site.

2. Are meals included in my conference pass?
Most meals will be provided during TINYcon, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Thursday, 9/21 and breakfast on Friday, 9/22. In addition, limited drinks will be provided at the Welcome Reception on Wednesday, 9/20 and the happy hour, Dine Around Seattle, and the TINYcon celebration on Thursday, 9/21. Coffee, water, and snacks will also be served throughout the days as well.

If you have specific dietary needs, please email us at tinycon@tinypulse.com.

3. What do I need to know about transportation?
The Grand Hyatt is centrally located in downtown Seattle about 20 minutes from the SeaTac airport. For those who are flying in for the event, we recommend using the Link Light Rail from SeaTac Airport to the Westlake station, which is one block from the Grand Hyatt. Otherwise, taxis, Uber, and Lyft are available at the SeaTac airport.

For attendees who will be driving to the event, the Grand Hyatt has valet parking as well as self parking available. More information is available on the Grand Hyatt website.

4. Is there a dress code at TINYcon or TINYcon events?
TINYcon and all planned events will be informal, and we suggest you wear whatever makes you comfortable. However, in our experience, most attendees will be dressed in business casual attire. Additionally, conference rooms can get chilly, so you may want to bring a warmer layer. You’ll also want to check the weather forecast for Seattle in advance.

5. Does it really rain THAT MUCH in Seattle?
Well, yes and no. While we have beautiful summers, fall and winters can be a bit drizzly. Most of the events will be taking place inside at the Grand Hyatt, but you might want to pack a small umbrella for the walk to and from the Dine Around Seattle restaurant and the TINYcon Celebration.

6. What is the Dine Around Seattle event?
This dinner event will take place at some of Seattle’s top restaurants. A restaurant will be designated for each attendee. All restaurants are within a 5-10 minute walk of the Grand Hyatt, and while we’ll be gathering to walk to the restaurants, you can also use alternative transportation if you prefer.

7. Is there an official TINYcon hashtag for use on social media?
Glad you asked! #TINYcon will be where you can post and follow along on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

8. Who can I contact with additional questions?
We’re always here to help with additional questions! You can reach us at tinycon@tinypulse.com
