Parking last year was very easy. Im staying at the doubletree this year so I will probably take the shuttle to and from but don't worry about parking, just be prepared to walk a bit.

And thanks TreeDude for the info..

LEAK TIME!

BoxTone is sponsoring two important destinations.




1. Booth 531, Solutions Showcase: BoxTone software experts will be on hand show you the smart way to manage, monitor and support your BlackBerry platform.

2. The Mobile User Management Lounge (directly across from the Solutions Showcase): All NEW at WES this year, this interactive Lounge is perfect for connecting with peers; for seeing great BlackBerry user and blogger presentations; and for a little fun and games.

For BlackBerry forum guys and gals - I've been able to secure the lounge on Monday from 6-8pm that I would like to serve as an initial kickoff meet and greet for the BBF folks.

We’ll have food and drink in the evenings at the lounge as well

More info on the lounge will be coming soon but to give you an idea it's a big space we're sponsoring that is split up into 3 different sections: Mash Up, Pro's Corner, and the Gamers Pad.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks

Jon

I think I just received Sprint's offering today, not sure if there's actually a sign up or if you just show up?

Nice of Sprint to generously offer us the ability to "enjoy Universal CityWalk." It's open to the public. Duhhhh...... Yet just another feeble attempt by Sprint to dupe the consumer and try to make us believe they are a quality service provider.

Oh and the date/time of the Sprint Now Network seminar is different from what is on the Scheduler at attendwes.com.
Attendwes says 11:30am; invitation says 12:30pm. Both with the same exact description. Lame....

Any other tips? I will be the only person from my company there so I may have to look for some folks from here to hang out with (even though I am not as active as I should be here).
I will have mine; but then I'll be working ... so I need to have it.

seems that these Verizon/AT&T parties are for US customers only. I kinda figured that, but somewhat disappointing for this Canadian.

Also, Jsplit, that lounge sounds awesome, I can't wait.

Looks like the lounge has got us set for the evenings, what will we do for breakfast/lunch?

I hope AT&T learned their lesson from last year, where they tried to make their party exclusive, and made you work to get tickets. Seems like they have......Everyone I know ended up going to the Verizon 007 party instead because it was easy to get tickets and was in the hotel. Plus they had lots of givaways....free devices, golf clubs, etc....

With so many options, I will choose the easiest one with free drinks. That's just me tho.

Darth - The lounge will have food at certain times. I'll confirm when that will be, but maybe breakfast.

Look at post #244, I posted the flyer image. Doesn't seem like much of an event.

Gamers Pad? Count me in. How about a Boxtone sponsored trip to Disney Quest?
