The SC11 conference has the same exhibit hours you might be used to, but I thought it would be good to post a reminder here.
Exhibition Press Tour, Monday, November 14, 6 – 7 pm. As an exhibitor, you won’t likely see much press during this hour as there are over 300 booths, but you may want to staff up your booth as it seems like hundreds of people work their way into the hall during this first hour.
Exhibition Opening Gala, Monday, November 14, 7 – 9 pm. Yes, they have food for all, but only paid conference attendees get the (2) drink tickets for the bars. Expect long lines and the need to grab food somewhere afterwards like the Beowulf Bash. Also note that the free guest passes you sent to your customers won’t get them into the exhibit hall on Monday night.
Exhibit Dates and Hours:
Tuesday, November 15, 10am – 6 pm
Wednesday, November 16, 10am – 6 pm.
Thursday, November 17, 10am – 3 pm
Wednesday, 4-6pm is Family Day at the Exhibits
If your family is traveling with you to SC, they can visit the Exhibition during the “Family Day” program from 4-6pm, Wednesday, Nov. 16. Family members will be admitted at no charge, but must be accompanied by an attendee with paid registration. All children under age 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
For more information, I highly recommend reading the SC11 Attendee Guide and sending it to your booth staff.
