Simply bring a copy of your confirmation letter to an Express Check-In Counter (either print it out or show it to us on your smart phone). Your credentials will be given to you at this time (this includes your badge/wristband and any additional daily exhibit hall tickets and workshop/class tickets you may have purchased).
