Hard to imagine that a week ago at this time, we were elbow-deep in the CMON Expo. I love the Expo. It's small enough that you don't feel pressured to be running around to try and see everything, but still big enough that you're never bored, going "what is there to do?" There's tons of VIPs that you can talk with about all sorts of topics. From painting, to game design, to blogging. There's all sorts of games going on. It's quite a thing.
And the next one will be here before you know it. They've already opened up registration for next year's show. Details about the venue and (of course) rooms are still pending, but they'll let us know about that as soon as everything gets finalized (hey, it's only a week after the show. Give 'em a bit of a break).
This past year, only pre-registered attendees got Swag Bags. If they do that again next year (which is pretty likely), then you'll want to make sure and get your tickets beforehand. Plus, it's cheaper to pre-reg. So save money and get free stuff. Seems like a win all-around.
Block off the date and there's a good chance I'll see you at the show.
