Know before you go: The Navigate 2023 essentials

Heading to Navigate 2023 in Austin, TX? We want to ensure you have all the details to make your experience seamless and memorable. Here’s everything you need to know before arriving in Austin for this transformative event. 

Registration at Fairmont Austin 

Upon arrival at the Fairmont Austin, head straight to the dedicated “Navigate 2023 Registration Desk.” The SailPoint crew will have your event package ready, which includes your badge, agenda, and other essential materials. Remember, this is your first stop for the week; being registered will make access to all other activities smooth. Pro tip: Even if you are registered generally for Navigate, if there is an event on the agenda marked “pre-register” (example: Identity University and Women in Identity Luncheon) make sure you’re signed up for those specifically ahead of time. 

Your guide to meals at Navigate 2023 

Austin is a city known for it’s culinary treasures, and we’ll be serving some up along the way. Your Navigate 2023 conference pass includes all meals and snacks, so here’s when you can plan to eat on Tuesday and Wednesday: 

Breakfast: 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM

Each meal and snack break will cater to a variety of dietary requirements, ensuring everyone has something that meets their needs.  

Join the community service activation benefiting Foster Village 

At SailPoint, we believe in giving back. Each year at Navigate, we’ve integrated a community service activation where attendees can participate in a service project that will positively impact the Austin community. This year, we will be working with Foster Village which is an organization that supports and serves local foster families. Be sure to set aside some time to contribute; details will be available at the Registration Desk. 

The must-attend conference party 

Get ready to be a part of one of Austin’s most storied live music institutions at the Conference Party! On Tuesday night, join the entire Navigate team at the iconic Stubbs in downtown Austin as you network with peers, make new friends, and enjoy some fantastic live music. Stubbs is a short walk (about .5 mile) from the Fairmont. 

Your Navigate 2023 attire guide 

Austin has a laid-back vibe, and so does Navigate! Business casual is the way to go. Think: comfortable yet professional. Don’t forget your comfortable shoes and relaxed attire for the conference party. While Austin is warmer outdoors (approximately 82°F/27°C in October), the meeting spaces can tend to run a bit cooler. Bring a sweater or a light jacket to make sure you are comfortable. 

Smooth transitions: Your AUS airport commute 

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) is the primary hub for visitors flying into the city. Here are a couple of suggestions for your commute: 

Ride-sharing: Services like Uber and Lyft operate extensively in Austin. You can book a ride right from the airport to the Fairmont. 

Airport Shuttle: Many shuttles operate from AUS to major hotels and landmarks in Austin. Check with the shuttle service desks at the airport for availability and schedules. 

Car Rentals: If you prefer driving yourself, there are numerous car rental services available at the airport. 

Remember, Austin traffic can sometimes be unpredictable, so always allocate buffer time, especially when returning to the airport.
