Important Registration Update
Some of our sharp-eyed attendees noticed that we did not close event and badge registration on May 31st, and we can now proudly announce that online badge and event registration will remain active throughout the show. That’s right, you can purchase a badge and register for events today, tomorrow, or even at 7:00am on next Thursday, June 19th! All using our website and from the comfort of your computer, tablet, or smart phone.
Event registration will continue to be handled via the website throughout the show, so no need to worry about stopping by the registration desk, dealing with event tickets, or waiting in any long lines. If you’d like to register for an event, just log on and register. The same will apply to event returns–you will be able to return event tickets up to 1 hour prior to the event start time. Walk in players will still be accepted at any event with available seats, if there isn’t time or opportunity to register prior to the event start. If you don’t have good internet access while at the show, feel free to stop by any of our registration or information desks and one of our volunteers will gladly assist you. Please note that the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center offers free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.
