You read me like a book. Lines are all I hear about. haha...
Yeah. We got a vendor to handle Registration last year (they were actually located only a few minutes away from me here in PA! It was great. As Asistant Director in 2009, I got to meet face-to face with these guys and help design the system.) Their name in Expo Logic, and they worked WONDERFULLY! From talking w/ Jackie (Reg Director...) looks like we will be using them again
this year. So do not have nightmares about the Registration lines. At peak wait times (Opening in the morning Fri and Sat) people waited 90min/2hr tops, and at off-peak hours, people simply walked in and right out again this past year.
Of course there were still lines of people lining up ahead of time for events like concerts and cosplay, but you will ALWAYS have that. Everyone wants to get a good seat in Main Events!
