Due to security protocols at the World Bank Facility, all attendees must enter with valid government issued photo ID. All attendees will be issued an OGC name badge and a World Bank Security badge. These two badges must be worn at all times throughout the week. In order to avoid the long security queue on Monday morning, those pre-registered prior to 29 February may pick up their OGC name and World Bank security badges on 6 March 2016 from 4-8 pm at the Elephant & Castle, 900 19th St NW, Washington, DC.
