An all gender restroom designation means this restroom is open and safe for people of all gender identities and expressions, including those who identify as trans, transgender, gender non-conforming, and genderqueer. These restrooms are clearly marked as “all gender” and not male or female.

All gender restrooms are located in the Convention Center on the 100 level closest to room 117 (from February 27 - March 7) and room 123 (from March 5 - March 7). These facilities are also located on the 400 level outside Terrace Ballroom IV (from March 3 - March 7).


Private nursing areas will be available at the convention center during all program hours. A Mamava nursing pod will be located near the registration area on the Terrace Level. The convention center nursing room is located between the Broad St. and Arch St. entrances.
