If you buy in advance before the wristband shipping deadline of 8/14/2017, your wristband will be shipped to you and you will not need to attend Registration or Pre-Registration.
If you do not buy your ticket by the wristband shipping deadline of 8/14/2017, do not receive your wristband in time, were gifted your ticket from somebody, won your ticket, or otherwise had a problem receiving your wristband, you will have to attend Pre-Registration or wait in the Registration line at the Salt Palace before you can enter the event. Please plan accordingly. We typically offer Pre-Registration the day before the event at the Salt Palace Convention Center. We highly recommend attending Pre-Registration.
