I went up to the registration desk to get my credentials to get on the floor and take photos for this blog. No one had a record of me registering. After a short discussion we got a work around going. Shortly, I will be getting my staff badge and have full run of the place.
So it is coffee time right now and I did get on the floor. My "Life Member" registration helped a great deal. The important thing to remember if in the unlikely event you run into any problems, don't get upset. I seem to have a gift for being in the middle of problems, but they always work out if you smile and keep cool. Keep in mind, that everyone (staff & volunteers) is here to make sure the attendees have a great show.
