So the BB World party is at universal studios this year? How will that work, we have to get a ride over there? Is a ticket needed? My wife is traveling with me, any way to get her in without a large fee on an extra ticket?

Re: Blackberry World Parties thread
 
Yes. Likely similar to the at&t party. They have bus shuttles heading over. Your wife will need a companion pass. There is also a party only invite this year but the companion is worth it as it provides meals for the conference.

Looks like the companion pass is worth it. What is the Monday welcoming reception? Also which day/event is all the good swag you can get ;)

Monday's reception is an evening event with dinner buffets and the Showcase Solution being open.
All days are swagfests. Lots of vendors either (a) run out of stuff early or (b) have so much they are unloading several on Thursday.

So is there free drinks throughout the event? ;)

Monday evening reception = free drinks
Tuesday evening Party = free drinks
Wednesday evening carrier parties / vendor events = free drinks 95% of the time

Bottled water and other various drinks & snacks are available on the conference floor throughout the day.

I remember one year where regular coffee and sugar-filled pastries were served for breakfast. Then Mountain Dew and energy bars were served for snacks.
Not a great combination for 5000+ Type-A, high tech, high-strung personalities at a gadget conference with an open bar. LOL
It sure made for some interesting times. (For those that were there and can remember.... Poor Matt. I wonder if he ever found his hotel room again.)

BlackBerry World Conference for BlackBerry Users - BlackBerry World Party

BlackBerry World™ Party

This year, the BlackBerry World™ Party is going offsite! Go beyond the screen and jump into the action of your favorite films at Universal Studios Florida® At the world's premier movie and TV based theme park, you'll find an amazing array of rides, shows, movie sets and attractions that make YOU the star.

From 7:00pm to 11:00pm on Tuesday, May 3rd, BlackBerry World Party attendees will have access Hollywood Street and New York Street at Universal Studios Florida, including all rides and attractions within those areas. You'll also get musical entertainment,
food & beverage, and transportation to and from BlackBerry World hotels.
Hollywood Street Party

Explore Beverly Hills' famous Rodeo Drive and Hollywood's Walk of Fame as you stroll by some of Tinseltown's most famous landmark buildings from the 30's and 40's. Some notable places include the Brown Derby Hat Shop, modeled after the famed Brown Derby restaurant in Hollywood. Schwab's Pharmacy, appearing as it did in the late 1950's film Sunset Boulevard. And just down the street — Mel's Drive-In, resembling the set from the 1973 movie American Graffiti.
New York Street Party

We're spreading the news about this incredible event location. You'll be surrounded by meticulously detailed facades resembling many of the familiar landmarks and neighborhoods of the Big Apple — including Little Italy, Park Avenue, the Macy's Building, Gramercy Park and more. Almost every set in the metropolitan area of the studios was inspired by scenes from films set in New York. You'll feel like you're "on location" on the bustling streets of Manhattan.
Party Details

Shuttle service between Universal Studios Orlando and BlackBerry World hotels is available from 6:30pm until the end of the event.

BlackBerry World attendees with a Full Conference Pass or a Companion Pass have access to the BlackBerry World Party as part of their conference pass. Attendees with a Business Development Pass or a One-Day Pass can purchase a BlackBerry World Party Pass separately for $149 USD.

Any scoop on who's performing at the party this year? When I was there 2 years ago it was will.i.am, and I left early. Who was there last year?

It was Will.I.am again last year.
Nothing on this year yet. I really don't know if there will be a headliner since the BlackBerry World party is at Universal Studios.

Verizon Wireless Information

Customer Networking Event
Join us for a night of networking with industry leaders and colleagues as you enjoy an exclusive reception of great food and beverages at one of Orlando’s hottest spots, the Red Coconut Club, followed by seeing a dazzling performance by the Blue Man Group.*
Red Coconut Club & Blue Man Group Performance @ Universal CityWalk
May 4 from 5:30 PM to 10:30 PM (Transportation Provided)

BlackBerry World

*Note: The evening will consist of two separate events open to Verizon Wireless customers from business, industry and government. The first event will be a reception with food and beverages and an opportunity for you to meet your fellow Verizon Wireless customers and share BlackBerry experiences. This initial reception is designed to qualify as a “widely attended gathering” under Federal Ethics Rules, meaning that federal employees should obtain prior ethics approval from a Designated Agency Ethics Officer in order to attend. The second event is admission to see the Blue Man Group perform in a nearby theatre. Separate tickets will be issued to non-government guests to attend that portion of the evening. We regret that we cannot offer government employees tickets to the Blue Man Group Concert, as Federal Ethics Rules and our own Verizon Wireless Code of Conduct prohibit us from providing entertainment tickets to government employees. Should federal employees wish to attend the event, tickets for direct purchase will be made available through The Meeting Source prior to April 4 (you will receive specifics once you register). After April 4, tickets can be purchased at the theatre’s box office.

Oh I am so down with Blue Man Group. Just saw them for the 6th time a few weeks ago. If the Verizon Party is at the Blue Man Aquos Theater, that would be flippin sweet! I'm gonna be there; no doubt!
