DEMONSTRATIONSATTENTION DEMO ATTENDEES
As with every GAS conference hosted in a new location, each presents its own individual systems. The Corning conference demo venues are very limited in viewing attendance. GAS will be opening registration on THURSDAY MORNING ONLY AT 7AM to help get everyone to the demo sites as early as possible.
Each venue has a maximum capacity of attendees enforced by local fire codes. We will not be able to allow any more than those limits into each demo venue. You will have the opportunity to wait in line and will be given a number. You must stay in line to keep your place
- anyone waiting past the maximum number per venue will be alerted that they need to choose another demo location.
We hope that this will help you to have a better conference experience. Many demos will be simulcast to the Museum Auditorium or Studio Classroom to allow for greater viewing.
