    We were just there last week for our 10 year anniversary. A one day pass (24 hours) is $12 and a 3 day is $28. I like the monorail because you can get in and out of the convention center easily, trains run every 7-8 minutes.

    BTW - I don't need gloves old man!:tong

    We'll get a meeting spot for everyone that is going, Vegas has a lot of great venues.

    Open for suggestions.

    Personally I like the round bar at Paris, center stage in the Casino, although it might not be big enough.:D

    I registered and booked my hotel already. Always a good time. Last time we won a helicopter tour of the strip from one of the booths.

    We will be staying at The Venetian for the week. Does Conexpo take over the City for the week or is Vegas just too big?

    Vegas is too big for Conexpo to take over, but it will definitely make an impact

    I'm good with the regular place, but let's keep options open. Still have my number?

    I will be there for the week. Went in '11 but had to leave early for a family emergency. If anyone's meeting up post a time and place and I'll try to stop by.

    I think PURPLEWAVE should send us all there.... Infact, I believe I'll talk to my salesman about it today when he's at my place !

    Actually yesterday my wife ordered tickets, flights and hotel we plan on a staying at he Cosmo is anyone else ?

    The only reason I am going is so I can make sure todd Hoffman knows how much of a dumbass he is lol :cool:

    She's going to Vegas with me but prolly not the expo, normally when we go to Vegas as soon as we get off the plane we go running in opposite directions and I doubt that looking at cool stuff (iron) is going to be on her list of thigs to do lol.

    At MinExpo, I'd stop and stare at him whenever I saw him, until he looked at me. Then I'd start laughing hysterically, and walk away. As you can imagine, I got more than one dirty look from him.
