This may not be quite the right board to post this question on, but I'm not quite sure where else to turn.
I know I'm thinking way in advance, but the IAAPA (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions) convention is coming to Las Vegas in November 2009, and I would very much like to go, since that's relatively close to me. I'm an ACE member (American Coaster Enthusiasts), and as I understand it, ACE members are allowed to go (since it's not really open to the general public). But I don't know how to go about it. Anyone have any advice? How to get tickets? How far in advance? How many days I need to see things? The ACE website does not seem to be very helpful in this information. Any pointers would be appreciated, especially from people who have been there before.
