Badge Allotment

Teams

Operations Challenge teams are allocated seven (7) complimentary badges per team (one Team Captain, one Coach and five Team Members that can include up to two alternates). These badges will give team members full WEFTEC conference access. Anyone registered as a team member or coach may enter the Exhibition Floor with their WEFTEC Badge on Saturday and Sunday for scheduled activities, and before 8:30 am on Monday and Tuesday for competition.

Guests

Each team member can bring one guest (one for the Team Captain, one for the coach, and one for each Team Member) to the Operations Challenge competition. All guests must be registered through the Operations Challenge online registration system to receive a (FREE) Expo Only badge. Additional guests are required to pay the applicable Expo Only fee.

NOTE: Operations Challenge Guests are only allowed to enter the Expo floor during Open Exhibition Hours, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm on Monday and Tuesday, and 8:30 am – 3:30 pm on Wednesday. If one of your guests is also a Volunteer, please make sure they register separately as a volunteer and not as a guest. Volunteer information can be found here.
