At previous CPACs, I’ve had to stand in line for up to 15 or 20 minutes to get to the registration counter. This year I stood in line for over a half-hour and had moved less than a quarter of the way up the line for paid attendees.
I’ve also applied a media pass, but the media center isn’t open yet, so I’ve adjourned to the Lobby Bar in the convention center hotel to wait.
More later ..
UPDATE—I waited for the lines to die down, and I now have my CPAC regular registration badge and my media credentials.
