Tickets and Admittance to QTM Events

Those attending the Main Event at FIT on Saturday: please remember to bring a copy of your ticket confirmation email with you. We will collect these at the door and confirm them after everyone is admitted – this makes registration go quickly for everyone. Those without ticket confirmations will need to wait to be checked in by hand (not as much fun as shopping!). You do not need to bring your ticket to add-on events – there will be a master check in list at each one.
