While the Starbucks in the convention center lobby will not accept your new gift card, there is another location right around the corner that does. Visit the Starbucks at 901 New York Avenue NW, just one minute by foot from the convention center.
We can’t wait to see you at the ONS booth (#729), your attendee headquarters. We’ll be ready to answer your on-site questions and tell you about exciting upcoming member benefits.
When you renew your membership at the booth, you’ll get a $10 Starbucks gift card, even if your membership isn’t due to expire soon. If you’re not yet a member, you can join at Congress to start receiving special access to CNE discounts, clinical practice tools, and our two oncology nursing journals.
We’re also upping the ante on the number of fun contests at the booth, giving you more chances to take home an iPad, gift baskets, and other prizes.
Contest #1: The Big Raffle
If you’re in the market for a grand-prize iPad or gift baskets filled with all kinds of goodies, the booth is holding raffles through Saturday. You’ll find a free raffle ticket in your conference guide, but you can earn extra tickets when you

Contest #2: Attendee Walk and Win Step Contest
We’d like to reward you for all the walking you’re doing at Congress. Stop by on Thursday, April 25, to get a free pedometer while supplies last, which you can wear at Congress and all around DC, including the Fun Run.
Friday morning: The first five people to show us that they’ve hit 5,000 steps win.
Friday afternoon: The first 10 people to show us their 10,000 steps win.
Saturday morning: The first 10 people to show us their 10,000 steps win.
Saturday afternoon: We’ll tally up participants’ cumulative step totals. The attendee who’s clocked the most steps will win the grand prize gift basket.
Contest #3: Facebook Photo Sleuth Contest
If you’ve ever peered into your friends’ photo albums on Facebook, this is the contest for you. ONS has snapped five photos from around the exhibit hall and zoomed in close, and at the times below, we’ll post these photos on our Facebook page. It’s your job to be one of the first three people to correctly tell us where the photos were snapped. You knew there was a reason you were on Facebook so often—go ahead, win a gift basket for it.
