Don't get me wrong, I'm not against this at all, especially with all the craziness that's been going on lately, but I'm legitimately curious how doing bag checks and metal detectors is going to work logistically. In the past, we've been able to come and go throughout the day in order to go to the satellite buildings, have a smoke, or eat lunch without too much pain.
Now with this system it seems inevitable that every time you leave the building you're going to get stuck waiting in line to get back in, eating into your time on the floor.
This thought leaves me somewhat disinclined to visit anywhere but the convention center so I don't waste most of my day standing in line to get back in.
I believe these have been implemented at other PAX locations recently. How has this been handled at those?
