    I had a great time as an emcee for both days and at the after party. Definitely buy those vip tickets and avoid the wait is a comment I heard time and time again. Looking forward to next year!

    It looks like VIP tix for me next year. I waited just over 2 hrs! I honestly can't believe I waited that long, but when all was said & done we had a good time!

    Just curious how long people waited /are waiting (if u didn't buy VIP tix). We're in line now & someone said they have been waiting 3 hrs (which I doubt) & finally decided to just leave. It's my first time here, so I'm just trying to get an idea. Thanks!

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