The OSCON Expo Hall Plus pass includes a lot more than access to the Expo Hall. Not only do you get to meet, greet, and network with 4,000+ like minds, you also get access to all of this:

In addition to visiting 95+ exhibitors, you'll be able to test drive new tools, compare products, meet with nonprofit volunteers, say hello to speakers and authors, hang out in the lounge, and much more.
