I need to order oxygen for the conference. How should I handle it with the hotel? plus

If you need to use supplemental oxygen while attending RLDC·2018 & LAMposium, be sure to pre-order your oxygen through your standard oxygen supplier. Make sure your oxygen is delivered to the front desk of the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter with your name on the order. When you make your hotel reservation, please alert the hotel staff of the date oxygen will arrive.

What should I wear to RLDC·2018 & LAMposium and the Breath of Hope Gala?plus

Casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. All presentations will take place within the conference center so bring along a sweatshirt, sweater or a pashmina if you tend to get chilly. You may also want to bring along comfortable clothing for the yoga session, if you plan on attending. Don’t forget your dancing shoes and cocktail attire for the Breath of Hope Gala! This year’s theme is a Masquerade Ball, so bring along a mask if you like, and dress to impress.
