Infinite Flight Booth

Members of the Infinite Flight team will be in attendance at the Infinite Flight booth which is booth #401. You can see from the floor map that this booth is in an excellent location to maximize traffic.

Devices will be available to showcase some of the new features that are in development. We encourage you to live stream and share you experiences on social media. Be sure to tag infiniteflight. The same questions that cannot be answered on the forum may not be answered in person either. Who knows, you may see some other cool stuff…

Infinite Flight is usually quite busy with newcomers and the IFC family. We ask that while we absolutely want to hang out with you, please do check out the entire show and make lots of space at our booth for people who are discovering IF for the first time. This is a great chance for people to get their hands on our product (literally) so we don’t want to scare them away!


Organized Meetups

Infinite Flight is hosting a community meetup in the atrium of the Renaissance hotel on Saturday evening at 8pm EST.


A Personal Note

(taking my moderator hat off and putting on my personal hat)

Attendance grows with every event that Infinite Flight participates in. This event is no exception and from what I have read will be attended by many from the IFC community. The IFC community itself is an extension of the app. App reviews on the mobile stores along with the overall pilot experiences include interaction with IFC members. This applies to both online and in person experiences.

I know many in the community are proud to be a supporter of Infinite Flight by wearing Infinite Flight apparel in public. Please keep in mind that you are representing Infinite Flight at these types of events. This is a great opportunity to showcase the advances that the developers have made as well as serving as an initial introduction to Infinite Flight for many in attendance. I am asking kindly that you please keep this in mind and maintain professional and appropriate behavior at the event.

To give you some background on my position, I am a referee for a high school sports league. The moment I put the stripes on I am representing all officials and the inherit institution that it serves. Acting a fool while wearing those stripes drastically impacts the public opinions (and ratings) on my organization. This is a good life lesson as it applies to many aspects of life, business, and your careers.

Thank you for listening! See you there!

Feel free to share your travel plans if you wish. With such a large community you may be on the same flight as others.

I hope IF devs will release some updates for these days. Thats just a wish, could be real or could stay as a dream. But it would bring success us.
