Sensory bags are available to borrow from our event registration desk. Each sensory bag is equipped with a range of items to help you feel comfortable and supported, including a weighted blanket, noise-cancelling headphones, various fidget toys, a colouring book, and gum.
Sensory bags will also be available in the Quiet Room.
In the conference area itself, you will find a small basket of fidget toys on the tables. Free to play and fidget, but please leave behind for the next fidgeter.
At BCcampus events we offer a designated quiet room to provide a peaceful and calming environment for attendees who need a break from the noise, lights, and other stimuli of our event spaces. The quiet room is intended to help you stay relaxed and focused so you can make the most of your learning and networking opportunities. It is important to note the quiet room is not intended for conversations or meetings but rather as a space to take a break and recharge.
The quiet room will be in Room 2065, Upper Level.
We understand venue temperatures can be unpredictable, so we’ve got you covered! We offer fluffy lap blankets to help you stay comfortable. These blankets are available to borrow from our registration desk and can be returned when no longer needed. If you are feeling chilly, please do not hesitate to ask for a lap blanket.
Frequent and Extended Breaks
We prioritize the health and wellness of our attendees by including frequent and extended breaks in our event schedules. We often adjust the start and end times to allow for more time between sessions, and we provide longer breaks than typical conferences to give attendees time to rest, recharge, and network. By doing so we hope to create an environment that promotes learning, collaboration, and well-being.
At BCcampus we organize events in a non-profit, cost-recovery format and strive to keep registration fees low or free. To achieve this, we collaborate with post-secondary institutions for venue spaces and receive in-kind support, which helps cover costs and enables us to provide free registration for students and folks who may need assistance. If your organization is interested in sponsoring one of our events, please reach out to email@example.com.
Photography Opt-Out Option
From time to time, a photographer is present at in-person BCcampus events to capture images to be shared on our digital properties and promotional materials. Attendees are always able to decline the media release of photos. Red lanyards denote an attendee who does not want to be photographed. No photos are permitted to be taken of children in our childcare program.
