Assorted Criminals, Keynesians, Crazies and Other VIPs

The Milken Global Conference 2016 is scheduled to take place between May 1and May  4 in Los Angeles. It appears that there will be more than the usual security at the event this year. From the event website:
We have implemented new security measures at the Beverly Hilton in the interest of improving conference and guest security. 
Access to the Beverly Hilton will only be available to pre-registered conference participants and their guests who present their Global Conference credentials (photo ID badge).
All participants will be required to pre-register and receive a Global Conference credential (photo ID badge) before they access the Hilton. (See credential pick-up details here).
Non-conference attendees will be required to have a Global Conference credential (photo ID badge) in order to access the hotel premises. Guests and Visitors must be pre-approved and pre-registered before receiving a Global Conference credential.
When entering and exiting the Beverly Hilton, your Global Conference credentials (photo ID badge) will be verified with security and scanned at all entrances.
Global Conference credentials must be displayed at all times.
