JUNE 2013 PACC Conference
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR:
The beautiful new Smith Center for the Performing Arts will host us June 6 & 7, 2013. We will begin Thursday morning about 9:30 and wrap-up early Friday afternoon.
The Smith Center is located off the strip. The closest hotel is about a mile away, but we suspect a lot of folks will prefer to stay on the Strip (about a $13 cab ride over to the Center). We are going to select a mid-price range ‘recommended’ hotel on the strip and communicate that to everyone in early February. Staying in that location would be a good choice for those who would like to easily cab over together. We also will communicate what the closest hotel is for those who prefer proximity over neon!
We are NOT going to reserve a room block. Since this is off-season, we will beat the group rate by reserving on-line, according to our Vegas insider. Suzanne says the best deal may be packaging hotel with your flight. She also advised that if you plan to stay over on the weekend, expect higher rates for Friday and Saturday. And, for you high rollers who have a particular must-stay-there hotel in mind versus our recommended one, Suzanne suggests joining that property’s email list now so they’ll send you all their special deal information.
Finally, Please shoot me an email if there is a topic or a speaker dear to your heart. Suzanne has already given some great suggestions drawing on all the marketing assets in Vegas. We will be working on the agenda soon.
Thanks and Look forward to seeing everyone in June!
