We have alerted the Fort Worth Convention Center that people may choose to spend the night outside the facility.  If you choose to do so, please make sure you line up along the wall OUTSIDE the 11th Street Lobby Entrance off Houston Street (see map below).

On Friday morning, BLADE Show management will escort the people lined up outside into the building and queue them up in the same order they were outside.  If you do NOT have an early bird ticket, you will be queued up in a separate line.

VERY IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ----If you arrive before Will Call opens on Friday morning, then please line up outside behind the overnight crowd.  No one will be permitted to line up inside the building until the overnight line has been moved inside.

WILL CALL will open at 9:00 AM for General Admission ticket holders.  ONLY Early Bird holders may start picking up their tickets at 8:30 AM.  General Admission Ticket Holders will enter the Show at 10:30 AM on Friday and 10:00 AM on Saturday.

BLADE Show Texas takes place in Exhibit Hall EF and attendees will enter through Exhibit Hall F once the Show is open.
