Hi Jasmur1

Lucky you...going to WES.
You're going to have a great time!

To make sure you register for exactly what you want - you should call the registration number on their website. WES 2009: Registration

Here are the phone numbers:
In North America: 1-877-645-9324
International: +1-770-592-1521

The reps answering the phones are VERY helpful and may be able to give you a discount code.

Nothing wrong with asking a question.
For your $1799, you get to participate in EVERYTHING WES 2009 except for the Hands-on Labs, the Monday & Friday ADMIN 5.0 training and the certification exams.
The individual tracks and sessions within the tracks are all inclusive. You are not required to register or reserve a spot. Simply show up at the designated meeting room at the appropriate time, let them scan your badge barcode (provided when you get to WES) and you're in. That's it. If the session doesn't really meet your need once you get in, get up and walk out.

I'm sure the WES 2009 website will post the specifics as it gets closer. There will probabaly be an online tool where you can pick the sessions you want and it will create the schedule for you.

Hope to see you there!

The only problem you'll end up having is that you'll double-book a few sessions that are happening at the same time. Unfortunately, that's just the way it is with these events. During last year's conference, we were able to install a WES version of Viigo and connect back to our WES online schedule to get an RSS feed of our events. Quite nifty and we don't have to rely on our calendar (although I used both).
