Hey, what are we supposed to wear? Are smart jeans + T ok during the day or do you need to wear a shirt? I've been told business casual but that could mean anything these days.

Not long now, getting excited! Just hope those damned icelandic ash clouds disappear soon as if flying is still out in a week that'd be a real bummer!

You'll find people wearing most everything, but "business casual" of khakis and a polo or button down shirt always worked for me. In the evening - anything goes. Especially if it is warm (as usual) in Orlando.

Unless you go to Disney or Epcot with your friends, then shorts and t-shirt is the only thing to wear. right NJBlackberry?

Seriously, do keep in mind it can be cold in the breakout rooms during the day. I see guys in shorts during the day and I htink that can be cold during the sessions, not to mention it isn't very professional and I like to dress to remember I am representing my company during the conference.

I think I saw some of Orinoko's co-workers at the RIM party last year

We should pull together a BBF BBM pin trade on those attending. I need to start packing soon!

Brilliant. And nothing to do with this thread.
