@roubchi:Yes. Bag pick up at McCormick Place is open on Sunday, May 3rd, 7AM to 5PM.The booth Expo will be open on Monday, May 4th.
I can check on O'Hare pick up re: access across terminals. I don't think you'll be able to access Terminal 1 and 3 from 2. I'd recommend going to one of the hub hotels near your hotel for remote pickup.
Just updated the post above: To be clear, TechEd lives on. This event will be a part of and an enhancement of TechEd, co locating with that event to ensure the world of IT gets optimal access to all of the best resources in one place.
@Lvs58: There are so many great choices of sessions to attend at TechEd and not enough days to attend them all, which is why the session recordings are made available to view on-demand. Recordings are made available 24-48 hours after the session. Visit http://northamerica.msteched.com/catalog and watch the sessions you weren’t able to attend.
@simpsonjr: Some late breaking updates were not able to be incorporated into the labs in time for techEd. But, there are many System Center labs available in the Hand-on Lab area and if you’re interested in the System Center Instructor-led Labs, there has been room to seat just about everyone that wants to attend.
@Indycamper: The interest in the ILLs has been very high so the seating capacity was expanded. We’re finding that there have been enough seats available to seat just about everyone that wants to attend. Come by 10-15 minutes before they start to improve your chances of securing a seat.
