Well I got my hotel reservations. They have a rate of $79 a night plus 13% tax for the 19th through the 24th. I would try to get that as soon as possible. I would be shocked if the place is not completly booked a month before. I plan to be in New orleans Sunday afternoon. I have family around there so I will be getting in that area Saturday and plan to leave the area the next Sunday.

The hotel does have high speed internet for $10 a day. I am looking forward to this they are always a lot of fun.

I have not frequented WW for months and I am glad to see that this forum is still alive.

Today I received a $50 off coupon code for the conference in the snail mail and realized that there is a conference once again.

Having attended Las Vegas and Orlando conference and how DUPLICATE and boring the Las Vegas one was (as it was 95% the same as Orlando), I decided not to attend any other.

However, I want to know if this conference is any different from the last two in any way? Pls sticky me with any info you have as I am not checking WW any more and does not find much value here anymore.

Considering there were nearly three times as many sessions in Vegas as Orlando, twice the exhibitors, three times the speakers, and three times the attendance, you must have been to a different conference? Out of all the ppts in Vegas, only 3 were the same as orlando.

We listened strongly to all the feedback (thanks) from Vegas and have tweaked a bit of the conference. There will be about a 50% new set of sessions and about 8 additional this time (over vegas).

This will be the biggest conference we have ever done. Registrations are running well ahead of Vegas.

Keynotes announced before the first of may.

LOL, you thought the largest forum on the web would shut down while you were away? :)

Thanks, guys for your responses. Are the session details made available any where ..!. I will likely send a colleague to the conf..

mfish .. I did not think the forum would be shutdown .. but thought the conf. was going to be .. but I was clearly wrong .. as the newbies keep on perhaps pouring into the conf. in record numbers .. keep it going!

Its on the list along with 21 year old Glen. I have a feeling I'll probably be too pissed from Hurricanes or whatever dishwater they serve up in New Orleans to enjoy them.. ;)

My non-digital persona is well known for having a pickled liver. I've never been to the big easy before, but my buddy has - his liver got pickled with mine - claims that hurricanes are garbage - we typically drink scotch together, but he won't shut up about the bloody marys in N.O.
