Cory:  I would say a few things.  First, if you eat most of the time in the 
hotel restaurants, it can be very expensive.  See if you can get to a 
grocery store to grab some food for some of those meals.  I think there is a 
Publix grocery store not far from the hotel.  The rooms have refrigerators. 
Second, bring your cell phone.  It will make it so much easier to keep in 
touch with people you want to do things with.  It gets very crowded with 
between 2 and 3 thousand people milling around trying to get to sessions and 
other activities.  That brings up another point.  Elevators get packed and 
hallways get super crowded.  Pace yourself, and if you need to just get back 
to the room for a few hours of rest, do so.  You won't possibly be able to 
do everything an NFB national convention has to offer, so prioritize.  Also, 
it is quite a walk from the sleeping area of the hotel to the convention 
area.  Head out earlier than you think you need to.  Remember, there will be 
people shouting out directions along the way, so pay attention to them.  But 
if you do it right, it's a great experience, and you will enjoy it.  Have 
fun and enjoy.

I'm a first-time convention attendee this year; any helpful hints I should
be aware of as a first-timer?
