Bringing Your Kids to SC17 in Denver?

Thank you very much for your interest in SC17 children’s program. Our goal is to provide your children with a program they want to attend, while providing you with that critical “peace of mind” feeling so you can attend your event activities. KiddieCorp is pleased to provide a children’s program during the SC17 Conference. KiddieCorp is in its thirty-first year of providing high-quality children’s programs and youth services to conventions, trade shows and special events. We take caring for your children very seriously. KiddieCorp has enjoyed a long-time partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, which has helped to establish KiddieCorp as a premier provider of event children’s program services.

All children using the SC17 child-care services must be registered in advance by a parent or legal guardian: The deadline to sign-up is Friday, Oct 20, 2017.

SC17 Rules for Kids

Many SC attendees are parents, and some of them need to bring their children with them in November. As of SC17, all children (of any age) must be registered at the Special Assistance desk in the registration area. Access policies differ according to the age of the child and the particular conference venue involved.

Access to Sessions

Children 6 months or under may be brought into all conference sessions. If the child begins to fuss or becomes a distraction to other attendees, the parent will step out to address the needs of the child. Reentry will be permitted once the disruption is resolved.

Exhibit floor Access

Due to insurance liabilities, children’s access to the exhibit floor is very restricted:

  • Only individuals 16 years of age or older are allowed in the exhibit hall during installation, dismantling, or before/after posted exhibit hours.
    Children ages 12-16 are permitted to access the exhibit hall during regular hours, as long as they are registered for Exhibits Only. Each child must wear a badge and be accompanied by a registered adult at all times.
  • On Wednesday afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00, parents with children are invited to walk through the exhibit hall. All family members must be registered and badged, but no fee is charged during that period. Note that this is the only time that period.
  • These policies are listed in the exhibitor manual provided to all registered exhibitors and enforced by SC security.

Registration is now open for SC17, which takes place Nov. 12-17 in Denver.
