Tesla Place was probably the grandest conference venue I could’ve have imagined. The first look of the venue from the outside itself gave me a positive vibe that something great awaits us inside.
Entry tickets were free for everyone as usual, especially if you are a super-affiliate. Exclusive LIMITED DISCOUNT codes were offered by the organizers through a limited and exclusive stock of early bird tickets a few weeks before prior to the event. Volunteers and support staff were busy handling duties at the entrance and registration desk, verifying attendees and distributing entry badges and accessories to the guests.
The guest’s lobby was smooth and luxurious. The ambiance was pretty royal and comfortable even with hundreds and thousands of attendees pouring in every moment. The main exhibition hall was massive to the eyes and even on paper as it stretched across 5000 m2 in area. No wonder it could house 3000 people with ease!
