I just got invited to AppleExpo 2005 (Paris) via email, with a link to an Apple website to sign-up for an "electronic badge.
I'm not entirely sure why I got this email, It may be because I use .Mac, or even because I have an Apple account (on the web store) and have bought a few things there.
Hopefully, nearer the time, you may get one of these!?

P.S. You may want to minimize your Sig. - It's awfully long.

I think you should be able to get passes to get in for free w/o too much difficulty (a little closer to the event). That's how I got into the 05 Macworld Expo in SF. As a regular attendee w/free tix, you can definitely visit the show floor and see all the exhibits. I doubt you'd be able to attend any conferences other than say the Jobs keynote.

By "regular attendee" do you mean just vising the exhibits? Or are you interested in attending the educational conferences.

Here is the website for MWSF 2006, you should give them your information. Then they might send yopu more information when it's avaiable. Usuually they wiil offer a free exhibit only pass it you register by a certainb date.

As mentioned, floor passes ("Exhibits Only") are cheap to free. The "Conference Pass" (which gets you into the keynote among other things) usually runs around $200.

Does that give you a seat in the keynote or do you still need to que to make sure you get in?
