Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Can I update my registration information?
Yes, you can go into your account and change registration information after the intial sign-up should you need to change anything.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes, it will help security to identify that your are a legitamite attendee of the general session.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes, attendees will not be allowed in after 30 mins from start time as pertinent information will not have been heard, which is a prequiste for further advising.
