    Well I just got my tickets booked tonight to Vegas for LDI. Anybody else going or thinking about going? It would be fun to have a little CB convention while we are there. If you are thinking about it and not sure let this be your excuse to go.

    I'm absolutely going, but not sure for how long. Might just be 24 hours. I'm only going for the exhibit floor. I may not even get a room.

    Hey I'll actually be in the country. I figured it wouldn't fall on my break cause that would be convenient. The registration form isn't a happy camper can you give a general idea of ticket prices?

    In previous years, certain friendly manufacturers:grin: have offered free "Exhibit Hall only" passes, a $60 value. *cough*

    Complete Conference Pricing here.

    I'd like to go, but I'll be languishing on a South Pacific Island (Huahine, I think) about that time. Yea, I know you're all feeling my pain...

    Well, as a poor college student not in a theatre program... no. And as an under-21 person, Vegas, well is there any need to finish this sentence???

    That's the exact registration form that didn't like me and why I asked about pricing.

    Exhibit hall is $60 before August 19th, and $70 afterward. I thought they were giving out free passes through that link until August 1st. I used that link about two weeks ago and it worked for the free pass. Try that link on another browser maybe. If that doesn't work you might drop a PM to some of your CB friends to see if they can get you a free pass.

    No LDI this year, but my TD has been talking about a trip to USITT next year as well as talking to the GM about paying for it.

    That's too bad. It grows on trees in the northern hemisphere... I suppose you don't have small change bushes down there either?

    As someone who lives here, you only need to be 21 if you want to drink or gamble. Fortunately there are more things to do in Vegas these days, so you are no longer limited to those activities (but I think it's worth a visit once you are :^).

    On the other hand, if you aren't in a theater program and are not looking to be in the live entertainment industry, then I can understand saving the money. If you do want to work in live entertainment, I highly advise going if you can (been doing so for the last 10 years or so).
