So on Tuesday I wrote about registration being open for this year's GKTW 5K, and maybe there were one or two of you out there thinking, "Well, that's nice. What about the Expo itself?"
Uh, yeah, probably should have mentioned that, too, as it does stand to reason if you can sign up for an event associated with the Expo, you should be able to sign up for the actual trade show—which, in fact, you can!
So, let's make it official, shall we? [ahem] Registration for IAAPA Attractions Expo 2008 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Nov. 17-21, is now open. For those early-bird types, feel free to head on over here to find out all you need to know about signing up, either online, via fax, or through snail-mail.
And what do you get for registering? Thanks for asking: Only access to the biggest and best amusement industry conference and trade show in the world. Seriously, I'm not exaggerating. Want proof? Check out this page with some preliminary details about what's in store for the education program (the full rundown will be available in a couple months, and we'll keep you updated on that here at "In the Queue" as soon as the Conference Brochure hits the mail).
Just to whet your appetite, let me tell you the tours to Orlando-area facilities look insanely cool this year. These tours are always a highlight of any Expo I've attended (this year marks five!), and the 2008 roster offers up sweet trips to Disney's Hollywood Studios, SeaWorld Orlando (Lunch with the Sharks!), and a return engagement of one of last year's most popular outings, a behind-the-screams look at Universal's Halloween Horror Nights. I covered the latter last year, and it was excellently scary (and informative).
Other helpful attendee information can be found here. And once you check all that stuff out, there really is not reason not to sign up. See you in Orlando!
