Schedule

This section of the website contains the full schedule for Renovation, including our Program, Events, Exhibits and Services.

  • You can download the Convention Guide and Program Grid in PDF format below (members will receive printed versions when they register on site in Reno).

  • We are pleased to offer a mobile application for Renovation - available now from the Apple Store with Android following shortly.

  • We've also repeated some of the key information in web page format for ease of browsing. This includes a summary of what happens where and an overview of convention hours.

Convention Guide

The Convention Guide (sometimes known as the Pocket Programme), contains everything you need to know about Renovation - maps, schedule, item descriptions, and much more. Download it in PDF format by clicking here or on the cover image to the left. (Note that this version is laid out with 2 content pages to 1 PDF page, for ease of printing. You can also download a version with 1 content page per page.

Program Grid

The Program Grid can now be downloaded. This has been printed separately from the Pocket Program. Attending members will be given both publications when they register at the convention.

What Happens Where

Our "what happens where" page explains where to find all the major convention activities and events.

Program Search

You can search our Program Database directly to get the latest schedule information for any program participant or convention day. This will include any changes that occurred after the Convention Guide was frozen.

Mobile Support

Renovation is pleased to announce mobile support for the convention. We have partnered with Viafo to put together an application that is rich in features. The application is available now in the Apple Store, with an Android version coming in the next couple of days. It is also available as an HTML web application (for those of you that don't do apps) suitable for the iPhone, Android, and Blackberry devices.
