Been there, done it...nothing that really perked my interest. I also agree that these forums should contain more up to date and realistic information. Besides, I am from New Orleans and live in Las Vegas...I am pretty difficult to please.
PS...absolutely love your name!
I am a native Las Vegan and will most certainly be there! I am looking forward to the classes and the social events and am very proud that it is in my hometown! I would advise you to see the Cirque du Solei shows like Mystere at TI, O at Bellagio, Zumanity at the NY NY and KA at the MGM! All of these are spectacular and well worth the money! If you need any info on accomodiations or outside activities please do not hesitate to contact me directly!
Vegas is a brief 1 hour flight from our area so I'll be there. My best man at my wedding has been an executive chef on the strip for over 25 years so I'll be looking him up. Penn and Teller is a hoot! Also check out the Blue Men and the Circus Solai shows. They are all breathtaking. But DON'T stay at the Excalibur!! I'd stay away from any THEME hotel. Go with the classy ones, avoid downtown. Some good deals can be found off the strip but my Market Leader got a horrid room last year and she felt she should have been charging by the hour to stay there!! I go to hear speakers NOT associate with Real Estate Specifically! See some of the more general sessions as they can be very enlightening.
