These companies are offering free SIGGRAPH 2012 Exhibits Only passes:

Free Exhibits Only passes from NewTek (https://www.xpressreg.net/register/sigg082/reginfo.asp?o=106501&rt=NonMember&p1=LW12345)

If you live near the Los Angeles area, consider picking one of these up. The floor plan (http://ugm.pixologic.com/registration/1208-Siggraph/img/Siggraph-Floor-Plan.pdf) for the Exhibit Hall shows NewTek booth parked right at the entrance, next to the Autodesk booth.

I wonder if free passes cost the company anything. Be cool if NewTek did the same thing.

I'm not sure. In the past, SIGGRAPH charged $50 for a ticket to enter the exhibits hall. However, the "Exhibits Only" ticket is not one of the options listed in the price chart shown here:

Great tip -- thanks! I have added the information to my post at the top.

In the past, I've bought tickets at the entrance. That option is still there (http://s2012.siggraph.org/attendees/registration).

However, SIGGRAPH does offer a discount for tickets bought in advance. For example, a Full Conference ticket purchased before June 18th would have cost $1,045. The same ticket, if purchased before July 16th, costs $1,195. A Full Conference ticket purchased at the door will cost $1,320.

A Basic Conference ticket bought before June 18th cost $125; one purchased at the door costs $175.

I am not sure if I will purchase a ticket beyond the free Exhibits Only pass this year. My main interest in SIGGRAPH 2012 is to meet with people who I have not seen in a while, and an Exhibits Only pass works well for that purpose.

I go for the free h'orderves and drinks after the exhibit. ;) I'm not the loudest person and I get that stuff thrown at me. Good times.

I got the Computer Animation Festival pass. I'm off all week and this pass lets you go to almost everything except the low-level, academic classes. It was $200. The electronic theater is amazing.
