I enjoy Austin, this will be my fifth year, but they have too many attendees for the events and the venues. It's a great vibe, I always learn a lot, meet great folks and have a blast. But every year I miss sessions because it's too packed to get in.
It sucks to spend a ton on a full tilt badge and not be able to get into sessions.
And this. Especially Saturday, being pushed out by people with cheapo badges wanting access. This thing is so over-sold now, it's flat out money-grubbing rude to not guarantee panel access with a producer badge.
