    We'll be there from Sunday the 13th to Wednesday the 16th. Staying at the Imperial Palace. Who else?

    Whoa, I'm planning on being there but have never booked as early as the year before! Did you get an awesome rate or something?

    It was about 140 a night at the Imperial Palace.

    The only reason I booked now was because we already have the week cleared, commitments from 2 associates who will be going as well, and we have a babysitter (My wife is my partner, and this is one of 2 trips we take all year). So there was no need to wait.

    Last year we payed close to 300 a night at the Hilton, and I wanted to make sure we got a better deal.

    Besides, it's only 118 days away.

    Well, that'll leave more floor space for RED!

    They withdrew a few months ago. I'm going this year for the first time so I'm pretty excited.

    Paraphrasing from a David E. Williams article in the Feb 08 DV Magazine:

    Apparently Graham Sharp feels that the money could be spent better at face to face meetings with small groups of users. He says that gives them a better opportunity to get feedback and also to get clients up to speed on the latest upgrades. He also proposes letting the current version/features of Avid sink in for a while so that folks can get a handle on it before they upgrade again.

    Which makes me respect them for not following the herd to Vegas, and for not continuing the ever quickening cycle of more/newer/faster. Whether it turns out to be a good strategy, only time will tell.

    I take it that Avid is basically ceding the low-cost market to Apple and is going to retreat back to being high-end expensive.
