CIES supports the right of women to breastfeed in public spaces and across our conference meeting facility. Additionally, we will provide a private lactation room on-site at the Hyatt Regency Miami for nursing mothers and caregivers to use as needed. The room location will be identified in the final program materials.


In an effort to facilitate the participation of CIES members with children, CIES 2020 Miami welcomes participants to bring academically-minded accompanying children to sessions and conference events. We are also able to offer subsidized on-site childcare, to be managed by nationally-recognized and fully accredited childcare provider, KiddieCorp.

At CIES 2020 Miami, KiddieCorp will offer high-quality activities for children ranging in age from infants to pre-teens. Childcare services will be provided on-site at the Hyatt Regency Miami in a comfortable, secure room with over 1300 square feet of space. Located in a semi-private corridor with restrooms adjacent, the childcare room will be easily accessible to parents as they navigate between conference sessions.

Conference registrants will be able to enroll their children for on-site childcare between Monday, March 23, 2020 and Thursday, March 26, 2020; please note that services will not be available on pre-conference day, Sunday, March 22, 2020. Information about the registration fees and process will be available shortly through the KiddieCorp registration portal.
