Looking forward to my second trip to TechEd. Last year's Orlando event being my first.
I've looked and can't find anything regarding the availability of buses or shuttles like last year in Orlando and need to know if I'll be able to get a ride from my Hotel as I've chosen one closer to the Quarter than the convention center.
Thanks in advance!
From what I have read it seems every hotel listed on the registration site will have access to shuttles. The only hotels omitted will be the ones within walking distance to the conference.
If you look at the documents for sponsors on the TechEd website, one of the options is to buy ad space on the shuttles. That's a good sign they will be back.
From the FAQ:
Shuttle service will be provided between designated Microsoft TechEd North America 2013 conference hotels and the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Some hotels are within walking distance of the Convention Center and will not have shuttle service. Shuttle schedules will be available just prior to the event and onsite in TechEd hotel lobbies. Visit the website for updated information.
@khaos13: Nice find. I didn't even know there was a FAQ. I looked and found your quoted snippet on the 'customer service website' at https://msteched.uservoice.com/ Is that where you found it, or is there an actual FAQ?
That's where I found it. The forum kept not posting my post when I had a link in it. I finally gave up and dumped it.
I had emailed a handful of questions to the TechEd Registration Team and they provided me a link to the FAQ when they answered my questions. Until they provided me a link to the FAQ, I had no idea one existed either.
