Quote from: freewayangel092 on May 01, 2014, 08:16:11 PMJust wondering if any hours for badge pickup for thursday day zero have been made or set???
Quote from: crazymiggz on May 09, 2014, 09:50:30 AMI get the feeling it's not going to be as bad since pick up is back at the convention center, though it will probably, still be a long wait...

In the last three years, con events held there have never gone well. There was registration in 2013, the swap meet in 2012 (45 minute wait and snaking through 2 rooms), and the B&W Ball in 2011 (hour wait, cramped inside, no bathroom access once in). But since the swap meet and the ball were moved out of the hotel, they have gone MUCH smoother. I'm hoping that will be the case with registration this year. At least they let us do small group registration, which is nice since it means my roommate can load our stuff in the room while I get the badges, like we've done the last few years.
Quotethe Registration area will be open to you for badge pickup on Thursday May 23rd from 7PM to 10PM.

Quote from: lovepulse on May 10, 2014, 06:07:56 PMRemember you guys could always try Clockwork at the Doubletree Hotel if the line is too long at the Fairmont during Day 0.I won't be getting my badge until Friday night, because I have to work. However, if my friend wants to go during Day 0 after work then I might go. If it's too long, I'll head over to Doubletree, and I suggest all of you do the same as well :P

Quote from: Decantus on May 02, 2014, 09:53:56 AMCon Badge situation (Everyone)4 years ago, we did try to do Badge pick up at Swap Meet. This was a bad idea. Last year, we had the server failure that delayed people getting their badges for hours. This was bad, but not something that we can control. What we CAN control is having you guys get stuck in that long pre-reg line and not getting your badges until 10pm.Registration this year is more streamlined than ever. The Registration team has put together a system that will cut reg down to 15-20 seconds per attendee. But we are going a step further to make sure that you are going to be able to make it to swap meet check in. If you get a space for Swap Meet, you are able to obtain a voucher from us that gives you access to the Priority Registration line that Artist Alley Vendors have. You will need to come to Swap Meet Prior to getting your Con Badge, and I will give you this Voucher.
