Next week we’ll have a special announcement about what we’ll be doing at the show.
I just reserved my room at the Riviera. The ASTD Special rate is $89/night. My usual discount travel sites tell me the hotel is sold out. On Expedia I found a deal for $67/night, tax included. These days I hardly ever pay the conference rate for a hotel room.
The Riviera is old Vegas. Over 50. I looks like a hotel, not a foreign city. The Rat Pack hung out here. The hotel seems to hope that a flashy website will divert your attention from its 1950s ambiance. If you’re coming to the Conference, be sure to print out a coupon for a free bottle of wine.
