I mentioned this in supporters forum already, but I live near Las Vegas and there is a Las Vegas Hilton $45 a night coupon (and 2 for 1 buffet ) in a coupon book somewhere out there and they just let me use it (rather surprisingly) for my hotel stay for the conference. It does have a two night max so you have to pay a normal rate for other nights but it still saves some decent dough, $100 to $200 or so. Sticky me real quick for some details if anyone wants to know.

Ya, there are a few great deals on travel out there if you snoop around. Look for some package deals at airlines.

Anyone have the lowdown on high speed connections in Las Vegas hotels (particularly the LV Hilton)?

According to the Hilto Las Vegas website, the rooms do have High Speed Internet.

Ah, Vegas. More stimulants than anywhere else on earth. There's so much to do and never enough time. What are some of everyone's favorite activities when making the most of the city?

Mine: Blackjack and free drinks, what a combination.

And if you have never seen the Hoover Dam, make the trip. It's quite a sight.

I always play and usually stay at Imperial Palace. It's right on the strip - it's cheap, and they have a great fun atmospher. It looks like a total dive, but it's always lots of fun.

On the weekends you can play blackjack with dealers dressed as celebrities. It's a blast.

I also like to check out the statue of David at Ceasars palace. It's an exact replica of the real one, even carved from the same stone. It's very impressive when you see it in person.

Only things I do in Vegas any more (I grew up there, spent from '59 to '90 there) are eat and shop. Most of the larger Strip hotel steakhouses and specialty restaurants are pretty good. For out of this WORLD "real" Italian, try Gaetano's out in Green Valley nearly on Black Mountain (QUITE pricey, but real value considering, and a SUPER wine list. Tell Gaetano that Alan's sister from Utah sent you....) For good Italian less pricey and with the tables next door, try Il Fornaio at Green Valley Station.

Galleria is some pretty prime shopping (I'd RATHER shop in Georgetown, but Las Vegas is WAY closer....) and the shopping venues at various Strip hotels are (while priced out the roof) a nice way of passing time ogling how the other half buys....

For something besides shows and gambling, you can rent a car and head out west of town to see some pretty scenery at Red Rock Canyon, and if they're still doing it, you can see an old-timey play in the evening. Take a picnic dinner, some nice wine, and a blanket for sitting....

Depending on time of year and your interests, the PBR and NFR have some pretty good rodeo action at either the Thomas & Mack or another hotel arena or so (the Excalibur also has The Spanish Riding School performances sometimes). The Budweiser Clydesdales put on a helluva show when they're there (usually Helldorado which is May, but I think maybe they hit LV downtown during County Fair season too). If college sports is your thing, you can catch the Rebels football or basketball.

And don't forget Hoover Dam as has already been mentioned! As well, unless things have changed (and they may have - I haven't been back since 1994 EXCEPT to eat and shop!), you can schedule a trip to the public parts of the Nevada Test Site for a look at the government's test initiatives since the mid-50s (in which several of my family were involved over many years, beginning with my dad at Enewitok Atoll in 1957, and ending with my brother in and out of the Site to this day).

And that's probably more stuff of less value than any of you really wanted to know....

I can't think of a worse place to go.

But I guess the monetary theme fits nicely.

Will audio (or DVD) tapes be available for all sessions. With so many interesting topics, you cannot attend more than one stream at the same time. It would be nice to listen in on sessions you cannot attend.

For those who are going but haven't made any booking yet, check out the airfare & hotel packages. Your saving can almost be the price of the airfare in some cases.

Vegas now have a monorail travelling on the east side of the strip. It travels between the MGM Grand Hotel and the Sahara Hotel. There is a station at the convention centre and one at the Hilton Hotel.

I am thinking of staying on the strip and taking the monorail.

just one big question,
will all the sessions take place simultaneously or sequently?

i'm on principle interested in taking part in all sessions, so this could be a criterium for taking the long journey from austria :)

There are three sessions going on at the same time for the most part: [webmasterworld.com...]

I am attending my second one (went to Irvine almost three years ago), specifically because of the wealth of info that appears to be on offer. I don't mind mingling and networking a little bit too, but the "lectures" are the real draw, for once, as I am bringing some less-experienced co-workers who will definetly benefit.

I'll stay at the Westin on points, (LV Hilton is somewhat of a dump), and play at the Bellagio, with a DEFINITIVE midnight curtain call, so I can make the a.m. sessions. It's going to be weird; usually, when I'm up at 8 in Vegas it ain't for work.

It will be nice to meet some of you.

it is well worth it (I am coming from Israel ...)
The information you get and the people you meet there is what's makes me doing it over and over again.

I'll be there - all booked. What a bargain... I used to go to Comdex at $200+ per night in November. I just booked my room at <$50 night.

I wonder what it will be like with all those people.... Orlando was what, 600 total and that was huge? Now it's expected 1500 or so?

I do hope there is wifi... and more bandwidth than Orlando had? Anybody know what the meeting rooms have planned for wireless?
