Once you figure out the various lighting settings for most of the locations at Dragon*Con, you can shoot full manual mode for the dSLR and flash settings. For me, most of it deals with figuring out what ISO you should shoot at for any given location, and then it's easy to adjust on the fly afterwards. It's what I do. I may blow my first couple of shots to get a feel for what I need my settings to be, but it's doable. For me eTTL never really works consistent enough for me (due to mainly over-exposure), so I rarely use it nowadays, and mainly rely of adjusting my aperture to control over-exposure when using flash in the hallways/etc if I don't want to fiddle with stops of flash power.
