Not really an incentive to purchase online in advance as there is no discount.  :(

The Vancouver Boat Show offered such - it was only a couple of dollars - but it almost paid for a coffee if you bought it there at BC Place.

The incentive is to bypass that bloody lineup we usually have to deal with upon arrival!  My time is worth money to me, and waiting in line in the rain for 15-20 minutes is worth it all by itself, IMO.

Got there Sunday morning shortly before 11 - parking lot was already into the overflow... but it was a beautiful day for a walk...   8)
Barely waited in line to purchase the tickets - lots of workers willing to take our money.
Oohed and Aahed at all of the flashy shiny things (wish I had a large garage/ shop ... and money).  :(
Learned some things at the seminars we partook in.
Even bumped into some friends amidst all the people that were there.
Bought a few deals from a few of the booths.

We had a great time...  ;D
