Registration and Badge Questions: Elayne Pelz [ISL]

Some answers to common questions: Yes, we’re full, we have a small number of memberships we’ll sell on Day Zero starting at 3:00 but that will be all there are. No one-day badges. If you want to transfer your badge, write “I transfer this membership to so-and-so” on your postcard and sign it before giving it to your friend. Yes, you need to have a badge for most of the hotel’s areas. No, we don’t have dealers-only badges. Pre-reg for 2015 will be online only, and will open up this Sunday.
