    I just got back from the show. I was late by just a few minutes (about 12:05). I was at Hall C at the bottom of the escalator. When I didn't see anyone I headed to the top of the escalator. Eventually (at about 12:15), I just went around the show by myself. I do not have internet access on my phone, and unfortunately I was only able to view any of your messages until just now when I arrived home. Maybe we'll be able to meet up some other time in the future.

    Hi all,

    I am waiting for the group in front of the ticket stand
    for the show right outside the entrance of hall B
    where the show is located.
    I am wearing a purple sweater and jeans. Look forward to meeting everyone!

    • Lisa

      Hey Fabian – you can get tickets at the event I believe. And parking is mostly street parking though there may be a garage somewhere around. You should go- it's a fun event

    Hi! I probably will be using the elevator at the event rather than the escalator. Can anyone tell me when I get off the elevator how I get to the escalator to meet you guys? I think you said we would be meeting at noon? Thank you.

    Still planning to attend but I am arriving after 1 pm and my son is using my friend's ticket. Hope to at least meet everyone for future events I can attend kidless.

    Hi all, Look forward to seeing you on Sunday. We will be meeting at 12 at the top of the final escalator. I intend to wear a purple sweater and will be holding a sign. I also plan to hand out small stickers to each of you to indicate that you're part of the group.

    See you Sunday!

    Sounds great. Thanks to new assistant organizer for planning/hosting this event.

    There are often discounted tix available on the groupon type sites so we'll try to post when we see those.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
