The minute you step through the doors, you find the bright lights streaming down onto the immense indoor arena. Directly in front of you are large collages of pictures of IEA riders and shows since the beginning of IEA in 2002. If you turn to your right, you see the draw table stacked with color-changing cups, one of which holds the name of your partner. If you turn to your left you find a gift shop, food and vendors. The further you walk down, the more sponsors, colleges and vendors you find.
