FGS Syllabus Available

Welcome to FGS 2015

Onsite Registration Location and Hours

The Salt Palace Convention Center is home to the FGS and RootsTech 2015 conferences February 11–14 in Salt Lake City. This special event offers a few unique situations that haven't been seen at previous FGS conferences starting with  
registration. 

The registration area for both FGS and RootsTech attendees will be near the south entrance of the convention center (lower left on this map). 

FGS attendees are encouraged to pick up their registration packet on Tuesday. This is especially important for those planning to attend the Wednesday Focus on Societies Day Opening Session at 8:00 a.m. That session will be held in 355E, which is on the third level in the opposite end of the convention center from the registration area. If you must wait until Wednesday morning to get your packet, allow ample time to get to the session. People movers will be available for those needing assistance but waiting may be necessary depending on demand.

All attendees should read Getting Around the Salt Palace Convention Center for details about conference badges and a tour of the venue.
