DFW MACNA 2012

Re: DFW MACNA 2012

Postby masharp1126 on Thu Sep 15, 2011 7:03 am

Just registered myself for the conference and have one question.

My wife will be staying with me in the hotel, but won't be attending the lectures. Is it possible to buy admittance to just the vendor area and the banquet? Didn't see the options on the registration page.
Thanks

We're still adding options for the banquet and vendor passes. However,the banquet alone cost 50.00. Day passes will also be 50.00 so it may be adventageous to buy the full pass for her early.

Drew,

A question I forgot to ask last night. The DFWMACNA site requires you to enter names for each of the tickets that you buy. My dad and wifey both want to go, but neither want to go the whole weekend, and they will probably come different days. If I buy one extra weekend pass, can I use it for different people one day to the next, or does each person have to buy a ticket with their name attached to it? I know a lot of complicated questions about tickets have come up, but I think its good we hash out the details now, rather than at the door.

Thanks for your help!

I know in the past Macnas they give you badge with the attendees name. So I would think you would need to buy two full pass tickets or single day tickets.

I'd stay at the hotel so you can hang out late into the night having fun with everyone. If you stay with family, you may be expected to be there for dinner -- they may not want you showing up at 1am after you've been out with the reef nerds. :D

I knew that. I figured there was no way you were going to go back and forth knowing you have an idea all that you might miss if did not stay down there both nights. The fun really begins after the lights go out on the vendor hall.

Hey all,
When will the single day tickets go on sale? I am going to be there on Fri/Sat, but my wife is just going to go to the vendor area one day with me and then go running around Dallas the rest of the time. Also, where will the event be located. Sorry, cant watch the vid from this location.
If the answers to my ?'s was posted elsewhere forgive me. Can't wait to go to this.
Finally, how do I become a DFWMAS member. I am with the Wichita Falls group.

Single day passes will be available as we get closer to the event, but I would highly recommend you get her a full pass as I am sure you will want her to attend the Friday night reception and Saturday night banquet with you. The cost of a one day pass to the event and single passes to these evening events will cost more than the full pass costs now. There is also limited seating available for the Saturday Banquet and a single person ticket to it will not be available if it sells out via full passes which it did last time we hosted this conference.

You can find out more about the hotel where the event is hosted on the website, as well as many answers to some common questions - http://www.dfwmacna.com/travel/airhotel/

If my understanding is correct then no as they are separate. Dfwmas is a part of masna I believe but masna maintains their own membership

There is a one hour earlier vendor floor opening for Masna members. You have to be a Masna member to get for that one hour preview.
