This may a lost cause, but I figured I might as well give this a try. I really need to talk to someone who registered online, and actually knows they're going to E3.
It's like this, I don't know what's going on! Basically, I got a code through my work. Supposed to gain me access to E3, and I used the code when I registered. It was accepted and recognized, but that's it. It's not telling me what's next. I'm never getting a confirmation email, and when I go to the website to resubmit my application information, however it does look like my application was submitted properly, because when I reenter my information, it gives me the option to have a confirmation email resent to my email address, but it never arrives. I've tried that several times, but my inbox never gets it. I've also checked my spam box.
Plus, in order to get some answers, I tried calling the registration offices, naturally they're closed though, so I listened to the automated message...it says something about having certain credentials submitted by fax by may 1st at midnight, and that any applications that don't receive it by then would be declined.
I'm not sure if this message refers to someone like me though, since I had an actual code supplied by my company. Maybe this message just applies to certain people trying to gain entrance on their own qualifications? I'm an associate who was given a code to attend from my work, and they didn't even start handing these out to associates until a few days ago! I didn't even get mine til yesterday. But it is possible this message was referring to everyone, because they may want proof that I work for the company, but that's ridiculous they didn't give them out sooner if that's the case.
One thing I noticed it says on the e3 website, is that "If you are registered and confirmed after May 1, 2009 or have an address outside of the U.S., you must pick up your badge and badge holder on-site at Attendee Will Call." Again, I don't know if these codes they handed out to our work, automatically just confirm and qualify us to go.
This is all just gonna be luck if I can actually go. I need to know what's going on though. I gotta make the travel arrangements Monday morning or afternoon before I work, so I can get on a plane real early Tuesday morning. Everything's gonna have to work out perfectly, plus I'm coming all the way from Wisconsin. I'm willing to do whatever it takes, but time is of the essence, and I'm going nuts, because it's the stupid weekend, and I can't get a hold of anyone at the registration office, or someone who might be in a similar position as myself. I was 1 of 12 people for my company's region who actually got a code, so I assume there has to be some other people out there in similar situations as me.
I'm just going out of my mind, because I'm major excited about the prospect of going, but now I'm majorly nervous because I gotta get everything done in a very short time.
