    CSrs that are heading from overseas and from interstate should think about grabbing a room soon as I expect plenty of places to sell out.

          For sure!  The 4th, 5th and 6th will be worthwhile.
          There should be AACSA National championship heats and competitions on every day so you will get a chance to see the best of the best perform on stage (schedule not yet released) and the trade stands will be full of interesting coffee gear including a pile of CS site sponsors.

          CoffeeSnobs will setup a home roasting corner there and bang out a pile of roasts during the 3 days too so people can get some hands-on time.

          ...so there will be plenty to see and do on all 3 days.

              I am just wondering, how does a member of the general public attend on any of the 3 days? Do I fill out a trade registration form?

                        Cannot wait for this event, will definitely be there!

                        Im also confused about the day schedules, so what occurs on the 4th and 5th? It says trade visitors only, so general public is only for the 6th?

                          I dont know the details but as a professional barista in the coffee industry you are certainly "trade" and can register on their site for access on all days.

                          ...same goes for those considering entering the "coffee business" I expect.
