Can I access the conferences with my trade visitor badge?
Many of the conferences in the PACIFIC 2017 program are free to trade visitors and can be accessed when wearing a trade visitor badge.
However, some conferences require a separate email pre-registration (as well as a trade visitor badge for access), or an additional badge and/or payment of a registration fee.
