Everyone I was lucky to see at RTX. I see a lot of people who are worried about never meeting anyone from RT or afraid of missing the signings they want. Really, all you have to do is keep a look out, be friendly and courteous, and don’t be afraid to approach someone you want to meet. If they’re out on the floor, chances are they’ll have no problem with you asking for a photo or an autograph. You don’t always have to go searching for a certain person too. I think Jeremy was the only one I really tried to track down. Everyone else was just running because they were there, including Risinger and Andy, who I picked up a signing for when they got added.
You shouldn’t go to RTX for the specific reason of meeting specific RT people, but I know its important to a lot of attendees, so if you really want to, you will. Don’t limit yourself, just be open, and talk to the attendees around you. Making friends and making groups is a lot more fun and keeps your mind off “but what if I don’t see anything or do anything?” and makes it easier to just do. 💜
