Be Early - Regardless if you got early bird rates standing in line is going to a long walk to the main entrance. Unless you are part of the press media who was awarded a different access you don't need to stand in line.
Bring Cash - The merchants at the convention floor don't take credit card and expect to at least have a back up even though they take credit. The ATMS are not located near the convention center and its going to be a long walk down to find one.
Stuff Yourself - Everyday begins with a heavy meal and breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Better be full when you stand in line than famished.
Don't Get Dehydrated - Bring your own bottled water as Singapore is one place to sweat bad in the heat, even though Suntec International Convention Centre has the most awesome air conditioning one might get dehydrated with the slow move from a very long line people going to the convention floor.
Always Bring A Sharpie - Our foreign guests can't tell the difference between a marker from a sharpie, which they are more familiar using it to sign your comics.
Be Alert - There are scheduled freebies to be given in a certain time and be a few early in lining up. Because you don't get them instantly you have to respect the other convention visitors who are also getting their freebies.
All Charged Up - Get everything charged and ready namely you digital camera, laptop and any device you might be carrying along while you’re at the event. Especially the camera, because the convention is huge doing your personal coverage might not be enough in taking photos or videos. Bring an extra battery and a memory card just in case.
