SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is expecting more than 100,0000 visitors will attend its 183rd Semiannual General Conference on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 5-6, in the Conference Center.

Millions more will watch or listen to conference via television, radio, satellite and Internet broadcasts.

Sessions will be at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. both days.

New this year, the general priesthood session of conference at 6 p.m. on Saturday will be aired live through expanded channels, including LDS.org, the Mormon Channel and BYUtv. The expanded coverage is part of the church’s continuing effort to make conference proceedings more accessible to members worldwide, according to a church press release.

As with other conferences, members hear words of  comfort and advice from church leaders. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and other choirs will offer music at each session.

Tickets will be required to enter the Conference Center and attendees will need to pass through a security check. Cameras, recording devices, weapons, food, backpacks, packages and large bags will not be allowed.

For general sessions, members are encouraged to participate via radio, television, satellite, Internet transmission on LDS.org  or local meeting houses.

While seating is limited  at church facilities downtown, many members of the church visit Temple Square to see and hear what they can from outside.

Overflow seating will be available in the Tabernacle, the North Visitors’ Center on Temple Square and the Joseph Smith Memorial Building for all sessions. Overflow seating will also be available in the Conference Center Theater for priesthood and Sunday sessions only. Overflow seating for Spanish speakers will be provided in the Assembly Hall for all five sessions. Tickets are not required for admission to overflow facilities.
