Will the quiet room be back this year?

Last year there was a "quiet room" in the ICC, up on the second floor across from the dealer hall, where you could go to catch a nap or decompress between events.  It was a wonderful idea, and my wife and I really appreciated having it.

Will it be back this year?

Wasn't napping expressly *not* allowed?

It's discouraged to nap in there, but it is good to decompress.  The room will be back, and moved slightly, to room 211.

It may have been.  When I was in there it seemed that about half of the people were reclining on the floor with their eyes closed, but perhaps they were just resting their eyes, or meditating, or something.  I didn't check too closely.  I didn't hear anyone snoring, at least.  Nobody seemed to stay terribly long, so the spirit of the law seemed to be being obeyed, if not the letter.

I'm glad to hear it will be back.  Thanks!

Great to know! Thanks for sharing the info marimaccadmin!  As someone with a shiny new migraine diagnosis, I will definitely be keeping this in mind in case I need a little escape from the hustle and bustle.

As a disabled Vet, this was a fantastic option last year, I tire easily and there is never seats anywhere for me to rest, this room always had chairs to sit on. So glad it will be back this year.

I never knew there was a quiet room! I shall partake this year.  Sometimes I need to get away from the noise. :D

I'm going to make sure I know where this is this year. I could have really used it last year since I have anxiety issues. Ended up having to go home super early Thursday due to it being too much. If I had known about this then I could have maybe decompressed a bit there and been able to keep going.

Napping is not permitted. However as a monitor i wasn't going to check everyone's level of alertness. If you were sprawled out drooling on the floor or snoring i would have said something. But otherwise I'll assume you're just resting your eyes and meditating.

There are benches available on the 2nd floor by the Rio Grande rooms that always seem to be available. It's often much less crowded there than on the 1st floor and is accessible by elevator or escalator.

I also have anxiety and it was nice having a place to recharge in between events! I'm glad it's back this year.
