Show Management reserves the right to charge a $55 Expo Visitor
admission fee, or refuse registration, to anyone. Qualifying manufacturers
(i.e. companies producing finished products that are ready for an end user)
may be eligible for free admission to the expositions. The complete list of
admission policies can be viewed here.
I would like to point out that if you fill out your entries “wisely” (as I have), you won’t wind up being charged any admission fee. I honestly doubt that any visitors are charged any fees, it is probably more of a tool to keep out the wrong sort of element.
They should email you a confirmation of registration, which you must print out and bring with you to the Expo. They will issue you a badge at the Expo.
You are required to bring a photo ID. Unfortunately, no children are allowed. Any guests you bring must be registered too, including spouses.
If you live some distance away from Anaheim, and if you have any family or friends living nearby, I recommend crashing out at their place instead of commuting a long distance. Walking past thousands of exhibitors and talking to dozens of people about hundreds of new technologies all day long can be mentally and physically exhausting. I suggest going with friends to help stay focused.
