    Default Expo Daytona Schedule Q

    When do they usually announce the class schedule for the Expo? Trying to figure out which days I want to be there.

    with many of presenters attending Transworld in March, you probably won't see anything until April.

    I doubt you will see a class list before mid May at best and it will change some if past experience is a guide. I go for some of the classes, but mostly I go to see all the friends I have met at past expos and minis. There is lots to be learned by talking with the other attendees and there are always lots of little gatherings in the hotel lobby at night and at the expo in the hallways and the lunch/snack area. If your sole focus is classes you will be missing a lot of good stuff.

    Definitely not in it just for the classes, but I can probably be there for only 3 days and was trying to figure out which 3 to attend.

    I'm assuming that the preshow workshops listed above are all day events? Like the xlights one would be a whole day of classes starting at the beginning and working up to some higher level stuff?

    It will be my first year and I am thinking of just attending the 3 days of the main show.

    There is no vendor hall / exhibits until the Thursday at noon. When it says pre-show that is exactly what it means pre-show. Only the two day classes are in place.

    You can now register for the Christmas Expo... https://www.christmasexpo.com/events...hristmas-expo/

    As far as a schedule of classes, they state "The preliminary list of over 60 class sessions (and counting!) that will be held July 18-20, 2019 will be posted soon."
