Role functions

Family Friendly

Child access

The conference welcomes the families of its delegates. Children under 15 will be welcome to enter the congress centre without their own registration. We do ask that accompanying carers register at the appropriate rate, to cover catering costs. Children may attend all sessions with you, but we ask that delegates use their common sense and remove their children from sessions if they become upset or otherwise disrupt the talks.
A comfortable and private space will be made available for nursing mothers. This will be equipped with an electrical point and comfortable seating. The convention center has baby changing stations in all bathrooms.

Child care

The conference has appointed Kiddi Corp to provide onsite, subsidised childcare and a full program of activities for the children of delegates. They have a strong reputation for hosting quality childcare at conferences and can provide care for 6 month-12 year olds. Care is available at $9/hour and places must be booked in advance.
For full details of the service and how to book please follow this link.

Local facilities

The Hynes convention center is directly linked to the Prudential Mall. where it is simple to buy snacks and drinks without a long walk. Walgreens is available on Boylston Street for baby and medical supplies. The nearest green space can be found at Back Bay Fens (a 15 minute walk from the Hynes) which has a small activity area and lots of paths for little legs to explore.
Those staying at the Sheraton can enjoy the use of their indoor/outdoor pool.

Boston attractions

Boston is a fantastic city to explore with children. The Science Museum, the New England Aquarium, Duck tours and Freedom trail could help them take home some happy memories of their trip.
