ARRIVAL: Doors to Philips Arena will open at 6pm for the Monday night session. You can access Philips Arena from 7 entrances. Philips Arena is accessible from: inside the CNN Center, the CNN parking deck, Taco Mac, Centennial Olympic Park Drive next to the Box Office, the Philips Arena Marta stop, Philips Drive, and Andrew Young International Boulevard.
BAG POLICY: To expedite your entrance into the venue, we encourage you leave bags at home or in your hotel room, as all bags will be subject to search, which will slow down your entry into Philips Arena. Philips Arena will allow small bags and purses. Backpacks and large bags are not allowed. All Passion 2018 attendees must pass through a security screening upon entry.
CREDENTIALS: Once your ticket is scanned, you will receive a barcoded lanyard credential. Make sure you put your credential on immediately and wear it to all Main Sessions. Your credential must be visible at all times.
Your credential is required for access to Philips Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will not be able to replace lost credentials. If you are not able to present your credential upon arrival, you will not be allowed in the venue.
HELP DESK: Attendees with ticket or credential issues will be directed to visit a Help Desk for assistance. Help Desks are located inside each entrance to Philips Arena.

FOOD AND DRINKS: Due to venue policy, outside food and drinks are not allowed in Philips Arena. Concessions will be made available for purchase at select times.

Once lunch has been served to all attendees, anyone needing to purchase other food will be released to do so.
During the Tuesday dinner break, attendees will leave Philips Arena. Local restaurant options will be listed in the Passion Movement app.
