    babywearing. Come and meet carrier manufacturers and
    distributors from all over the world, attend informative
    workshops, learn from knowledgeable teachers, listen to prominent

    enjoy special events.

    We are really happy to announce that conference tickets will be

    If you need accommodations, you can stay in the DePaul dorms for
    just $125 per night, per room. You can save money by sharing the
    room with someone else if you'd like. There will be two twin beds
    in each room and a shared bathroom for every two rooms. There
    are elevators at this dorm as well as air conditioning. The room
    rental comes with towels, sheets, etc. DePaul University uses
    this building as their convention hotel so it's nicer than you
    might expect. Parking will be just $8 per day.

    For food, there are various options. The campus is right in the
    city, so there will be restaurants you can walk to easily.
    There's a coffee shop, a fast food type restaurant to order from,
    and a buffet area -- all located right in the conference area.
    There's also a large grocery store walking distance from the
    dorms and the dorms have a full kitchen with dining tables on
    each floor.

    Please pass this on to anyone who may be interested! Thanks and
    I hope to see you at the Babywearing Conference! Christine

    The conference will take place at the beautiful Lincoln Park campus of DePaul University. DePaul University is the largest private university in Chicago, centrally located, easily accessible by our public transportation system, and set in an urban area just minutes away from all of the city’s attractions. The Lincoln Park campus is the oldest, largest and most active of the university's six campuses. Lincoln Park is a diverse and upscale neighborhood in Chicago.

    Is the conference going to take place at Lincoln Park @ the University again?
    It is such a beautiful place, I love the campus and surrounding area I rarely go over there.
    What classes will be offered this year?
    This will be my first conference, is the date announced?
