What to Know before You Get to a Sold out eCourts Conference!

Get ready for eCourts 2018 with these tips.

We’ve pulled together some quick tips to help get you prepared!

Getting to the Hotel

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is three miles from the McCarran International Airport. The hotel does not provide shuttle service. A taxi to the hotel will run $25–$30. Uber and Lyft fares are typically $10 to $15. Several shuttle services operate out of Las Vegas McCarran Airport and you can book some in advance. Self-parking at the hotel is $10 daily.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

If you made a room reservation at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas through the eCourts room block, you are not required to pay the hotel’s resort fee. Your room rate does include WiFi; however, access to the hotel gym is not included but is available for an additional $10/day. For more information on shopping, dining and recreation at the hotel, make sure to visit their website.

Getting your Conference Badge

Registration is in Belmont Ballroom Commons on the 4th floor. NCSC’s helpful staff will be available to answer questions and provide assistance. Self-serve badge kiosks will be available starting Sunday, December 9 from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m., and on Monday morning beginning at 7:00 a.m.

You must wear your conference badge at all times for entry into education sessions and the exhibit hall.

About the Conference

eCourts 2018 kicks off Monday, December 10 at 8:30 a.m. in Belmont 1 and 5 on the fourth floor.

Free WiFi will be available throughout the conference thanks to our friends at equivant.

Robot Greeter – Meet Tracey!

Tracey is a pilot project, allowing court officials and its manufacturer, Advanced Robot Solutions, to gather input on which programs are suited for a robot. Look for her at registration and throughout the conference to see how she works. Ideally, she’ll be responsible for directing courthouse visitors where they need to go. Through a large touchscreen, she can help visitors search for court dockets, answer frequently asked questions, and provide information about the judges and referees in both English and Spanish.
