ALL credentialed guests with tickets will now be allowed into the Opening Ceremony. Guests should begin to arrive at 1100 hours. Pens will be filled from the front, closest to the stage, to the back, so arrive early to get the best view. Tickets to the Opening Ceremony for credentialed guests will be included in the Athlete's registration packet at the Accreditation Area at the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Immediately following the Opening Ceremony, at 1800 hours, there will be an after party at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. All athletes and credentialed guests are welcome to celebrate the start of the 2011 Games.
