Why do they think I'm a morning person? My 2 presentations are Monday at 9AM and Tuesday at 8AM.

I need coffee just thinking about it.

There are only a few spots left, so if you have not paid your registration you may want to do that right away.

Given those two choices, I would select Tropicana. However, based on the ads currently on their website, you might be able to negotiate a better rate. They are advertising $49 a night for this summer. I don't know if that includes fees or if other fees will be tacked on, but you might be able to get a better rate.

I would also ask that you consider having it a week earlier than this years. I was able to attend all of the conferences hosted by the MSPA and was able to attend the first IMSC conference, last year, but I have blackout periods at my job when no time off is permitted. One of those blackout periods is for about 5 weeks beginning approximately Aug 15 each year. I can't attend this year because of that. :(

As a friendly reminder, attendance to any Conference Hall or Roundtable Session is dependent upon presentation of the name badge received at check-in.

In addition, no late check-in will be processed while a session is ongoing. You will be allowed to attend the ongoing session near the door until check-in can be processed during the next 15-minute break.

Should you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact us at imscinfo@ymail.com .


Sincerely,
The IMSC Team

I'm for Tropicana, too, of those two choices. But next year I'll buy my flight early. I've been watching the fares from DFW since early May. This year is twice what I have ever paid to Vegas so my flight alone is over $400. Of course, all the flight prices go down the week after the conference -- when summer is drawing to a close.... So if the dates are an optional vote casting, I'd vote for a later time.

My husband and I had the opportunity recently to see the new Tropicana hotel since they had started the remodeling project and it is really nice!

I highly recommend this hotel over the Sahara as it not only is in a nicer location on the strip in my opinion but so far they have done a great job! Also, for those of you who like to swim or sun bathe, the pool is really nice.

Hey...I was hoping that those of us that knew Deb Buggie and are going to the IMSC, maybe we could gather in the hotel bar on Sunday Evening, after the reception, for a drink or 2???

I'm wondering for all the people who plan on doing shops on the way there, if your scheduler is one of the ones attending, would it be possible to hand them the report in person? Not for any reason other than when else would you get a chance to do that.

I'm doing just that! With videos, not reports.
