Pro tips.

This isn’t Domopalooza’s first rodeo. Take a bit of advice from the pros who learned how to run the show last year.

  • There’ll be plenty of coffee and Redbull to combat the late nights.
  • There’s also going to be a lot of really good food. No need to pack your own snacks.
  • Bring a few power packs for your devices. But if you forget, don’t worry: there will also be charging stations set up around the venue so you don’t have to run back to your room in the middle of a session.
  • Pace yourself. There’s a lot to take in, and it’s easy to get burned out on day 1, only to sleep through the free breakfast and early sessions the next morning.
  • Take a break and stroll around the Grand America. The 5-star hotel features several hand-blown glass chandeliers from Murano, Italy, and an array of boutique shops.
  • Explore the city. Salt Lake’s Trax system is free within the downtown area, and a small fare takes you to Rice Eccles stadium where you can see the torch and other memorabilia from the 2002 Olympic Games.
