Who all is going to the Christmas Expo in Daytona this July?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So after Christmas I took a break and haven't really been on here much but I got an email the other day regarding the Christmas expo and thought of everyone so I signed back on. I have been working my full-time job and haven't had time to do anything working 50 hours a week.

Anyways now that I'm back I'm just curious who all is going to be going to the Christmas expo this year? I'm not going to be attending the classes as the budget just does not allow at this time but I will be going possibly on that Saturday to the vendor Hall and was just wondering who all will possibly be going. Since I only live 2 hours from Daytona on the opposite Coast I didn't really want to get a room there for the weekend but definitely wanted to meet and greet with some of the forum members.

Still contemplating going there Friday night or maybe Saturday night and getting a room at a local motel close by. Last I checked there was no rooms available in the expo block. But being a short drive that it is for me I might have to make an appearance this year LOL

we have our tickets but may be a "game day decision", we are moving to the midwest.  We have somewhere to stay just need to decide if we want to spend the airline funds.

I'm driving down from MD to be there! I've been going every other year back to 2013 so this is my year to go! really looking forward to the classes, vender hall and of course meeting or reconnecting with people.

What's the cost for this {no classes, just visiting the vendor hall}?   If I can afford the cost and find transportation there and back to Orlando, I would consider going to this too.  So I could finally meet some of the forum members on here as well!   Sounds like fun.

we are moving to the midwest so there is a chance we may not go, we have two tickets for Saturday that we might be willing to send your way if you are interested.  I just need to check with the expo to see how they do that.

Thanks.  That's not bad.  No plan on attending any classes, but would be great to check out the vendors.

Since I can no longer drive, just would have to find a way there and back.  Too bad our Lynx bus system doesn't have buses that go over there, but not sure that'd be too great since the bus would probably be time limited and by the time I got there, would have to just get on the return bus home.  Gad, our Public Transportation system in FL really is terrible.

I'm interested, but since I, nor my wife can no longer drive, finding my {our, wife and I} way there just may not be possible. :(

Is this this weekend?  Or later in the month {May}?  EDIT: OOPS, just realized the header states July.   Sometimes you just can't see it when it's right in front of you.   Now you know why I no longer drive and gave up my license to drive. LOL   Being legally blind, I knew it was time to give up the D.L.!

Uber.  My sister-in-law lives in Orlando and might drive you but trust me, your safer with Uber.  We don't call her the white knuckle ride for nothing.

OUCH!  If that's the cost, that definitely leaves me out of it, even if I{we, wife and I} could get there!

I think it runs Tuesday to Saturday with Tuesday to Friday being classes.  Expo hall opens on Friday and is open on Saturday.

I would give you our tickets if it looks like we can't go.  Just need to see how to transfer them.

ROFL.  Sounds like what they say about the Pastor of my Churchs' driving too.  And guess what, he also drives for Uber!  Uh Oh.....

And I've ridden with Uber for a few things, I have found many of their drivers very UNSAFE DRIVERS!  Texting while driving, talking on cell phone and ignoring their passengers and some of them are just HORRIBLE drivers.   So I'm not a big fan of their services!

Well that'd be great.  If you can, we can try and find a way there somehow.  When you know, let me know and I'll PM where you can send them.

Thank you.

from what I read I don't need to send them anywhere.  Just change the names on the registration and email you the confirmation.

Sister-in-law is blind (not the one in Orlando though that would explain her driving) and lives in Tucson.  She has done Uber and Lyft, says Lyft drivers are better and more respectful.

Been ignoring too many of these Expos, and biting the bullet this year.  Too expensive, but tired of saying, "Next year".  So, flying in from CO.  I'm not a regular here, but try to keep up in the Sequence Sharing forum.

 

Any of the sequence-sharing folks going to the Expo in Daytona Beach?
