What is the typical makeup of attendees?


The event typically attracts a mid-20's to early 40's crowd, but anyone over 21 years old is of course welcome. People travel in from around the country for the event, so the event has a nice diversity to it. There is typically a 50/50 split of singles and couples, as well as a pretty even split of women and men. There are distinct party areas and a variety of entertainment, so there is always something for everyone.


What is the layout of the event and seating arrangements?


This is more of a reception-style event for the Main Event and Dance tickets - encompassing the Gaylord Rockies' ballroom complex w/ extremely limited seating for the Main Event and Dance tickets to maximize event space and comfortable crowd flow. However, there are more open seating areas available in the VIP sections for the vast majority of the VIPs. If seating is of concern, VIP is the way to go.
