During Artifact

Identifying Staff

Throughout the conference, Artifact Staff should be easy to find. Look for brightly-colored lanyards and badges. We are here to answer any questions you have and to help with any difficulties you encounter. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Photography, Video and Quoted Text

Your registration serves as your permission for us to include you in any event photography or video taken during the event. We use these materials for promotional or educational ventures related to the conference. We may also want to share any tweets or quotes about the conference. We’ll fully credit you if we do.


During conference hours, please let Artifact Staff if you need assistance or if there is an emergency. We keep simple first aid items on hand at all times—let a staff member know if there is something you need.

After conference hours, call 911 for emergency assistance.

Many of our venues are within walking distance, but when you don’t feel like walking, both Lyft and Uber are available in Austin as a safe ride home from conference or evening events.
