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

Recommended Posts

Sadly my plans may change. We are moving the beginning of next month so they may not let me have that Saturday off as I'm taking a week off for the move :(

We checked in just a few minutes ago. Waiting on a room number now. I'm not going to the RGB pre class tomorrow, but I am going to the LOR classes Tuesday and Wednesday.

Well, 

I'm a dumb dumb. Didn't think to check my email and see if I needed anything other than my laptop. Yup. Should have brought a controller, dongle, lights. I DO have my laptop so there's that!

Phil, there is no central repository, as it is up to the individual instructors to post if they want. I would look at the curriculum and approach the instructor via email and ask for materials. 

With that said, all my material is posted on my Display Web page:

Phil -- Zman is correct, unfortunately.  However, I got the sense that those presentations done by LOR team members would be posted on the LOR website > Support > Tutorials & PDFs.  But, I don't see them up there yet.  Also, many of the non-LOR presenters, made their presentations available, either via website or via email request.

 

Zman -- job well done on your presentations.  Sorry I couldn't make all 6, but did enjoy the ones I was able to attend.  THANK YOU!

 

Education Committee -- Any thought on having some (if not all) of these topics repeated during the same Expo?  There are MANY sessions I wanted to attend, but couldn't because of other sessions at the same time, and just hoped I chose the right one.

Sysco -- it's all a blur.  LOTS of great things.  I attended 2 of the 3 pre-show sessions, and those were great.  Any chance you get to take something from Drew Hickman -- DO!  I wanted to attend a lot of the S5 classes, but failed to due to other sessions going on.  They were all great, which really doesn't help you a lot.  There was the Moving Heads by Tom Betgeorge, Music's DNA (and sequencing) by Aubrey Kall, the … Holy Grail by Mark Z, Pixels in a Traditional Display by Darren Hufty, Your First Smart Pixel by Matt Brown, Intro to DMX by Kevin Thomas, Intro to Audacity by Jeff Oberst, Traditional Elements by Jeff Carter, etc.  

 

The Vendor Hall was great with LOR, xLights, Novelty Lights, Boscoyo, Christmas Past Sleight Co, Crockett Fantasy of Lights, BigStar Lights, Magical Light Shows, the large displays by Universal Concepts and Christmas Done Bright, Lori's Lighted D'Lites (wired frames), and more.

 

Sorry -- this probably doesn't help you any.  I liked what I saw, including many of the features in S5.

 

Not to be overlooked -- I enjoyed making a good number of personal connections with other Christmas enthusiasts, seeing what they do and how they do it, and learning from them.

 

A lot of great tips here and there, big and small.  I'm hoping to go through all my notes again this weekend, and formulate a game plan.

 

Anything specific you're looking for?

Rhino, assembling the schedule is always an interesting activity. Repeating classes has been discussed, but not practical. When I have this situation, I have one of my buddies taking the class take good notes.....
