There are an amazing amount of vegas locals!

Tickets are selling, 34 in the first week.

If you are planning on coming I would encourage you to buy your tickets/reserve your hotel quickly.

Also the next random ticket buyer prize is a free suite upgrade!

Making plans to be there, It don't take much to get me to LV. Cant wait to see what riff-raff shows up. AD0PT has lots of dudes on the west coast and a couple LV natives. Should prove to be good times and Im sure when its over somone will be out a vindy on the 4-4 undock.

I've just bought two tickets, reserving room and flight now!

The 4:00 PM check in time is just TERRIBLE and unheard of in my years in a traveling job with 1000+ hotel stays. Have to get there Friday night and they wont extend the room rate for Friday night.

So, I must do one of the following;
-Stay somewhere else one night
-Pay $177+taxes for one night additional at Paris,
-Stay up all night and carry my luggage around; I can get by with a backpack but not the girl coming with me.
-Fly in on earliest Saturday morning flight and miss the 1:00PM start time, will still be in the airport...and carry around our stuff until 4:00.

I know the airport has lockers but I've only seen them on the departure side of the LV airport.

Maybe Paris set the late time for a buffer zone, but if they dont have early check-in I'm making them put my bags behind their counter.

I think a weekday event would make it a "NO WAY" for me. Heck I'm Union with 10 years seniority and I still only get 12 days vacation, so thanks SO MUCH for making it a weekend event.

Air Tran has flights from Milwaukee for $177 non-stop both friday and saturday 29/30 of July. I didnt really check anywhere else.

Former Vegas local - moved away a couple years ago but go back several times a year to visit friends and family.

I think this should be an annual thing!!! *subliminal hint* July is a great time of year to do a convention in Vegas - because it will be hot the rates will be lower *usually*. $100 a night for the Paris is a GREAT rate!

Some tips I'd like to pass on as a former Vegas local and someone who worked in Event Planning for years.

There should be a locals rate - there is clearly a large number of people attending who are stating they are local. Why not knock off $25 bucks for them. OR You may need convention staff there on the scene - recruit from the locals and tell them they donate x hours manning check in tables etc you will discount their rate. You can also, give a "staff" rate for those willing to donate their time but aren't local.

You may want to have the locals or one local plan a bar crawl. There is a different scene for locals than there is for the tourists. If you get off the strip drinks get cheaper *wink*.

Someone mentioned carrying their bags around ? You don't need to do that. Go to the hotel, tell them you are with the convention and check your bags in with the concierge. They will give you a ticket and hold them until you are in your room and call for them. You should tip $1-2 per bag they are holding when they deliver your stuff.

My last suggestion is that if this should turn into an annual event I'd be willing to volunteer my time to help on a planning committee to make it happen.

Thank you Zapa for putting this together - it takes a lot of work !!!

jc,

Just check your bags at paris and stay up all night. All vegas strip hotels will allow you to check bags even if you aren't checking in until the next day. You can do the same thing when checking out if checkout is noon and your flight isn't until 8 or 9.

Hi Walbro, to buy a ticket at the discounted price go to www.evevegas2.com and click on buy ticket.

If you bought a ticket at the door, if there are any left by then, it will cost $150 instead of $100.

Hi Jayne,
I'm going to contact Paris to see what I can do for people in your situation for the room rate. From a luggage perspective just check in your luggage with the bell hop they will take care of it and you can call for it when you reach your room or pick it up yourself when you want to check in.

Paris does offer early check in, but it depends on rooms being ready at the time. They guarantee room availability by 4pm.

There are 11 attendees from california alone, you'll find the west coast well represented.
