    This year's ABW conference
    2 years ago I had a great time, met lots of nice people and learned alot when the ABW was in las vegas. It's mid March, lets do it again in Las Vegas. Please Please Please. Last years in chicago wasn't as much fun (to put it kindly). Let's get some planning going on and all head out to LV in say....ummm 6 weeks ;-)

    How about we compromise and have it at one of the casinos in CT?

    They're very nice casinos, plus there are beaches nearby, Mystic Seaport aquarium, Mystic Seaport (a restored whaling town), and of course there would be MOI! (You will not be seeing MOI if the venue is Las Vegas.)

    I will even provide, free of charge, an interpretive naturalist's tour of the beach for any ABWer who's interested. If you're real good I'll show you my super-secret trick for handling spider crabs without getting pinched. Now how can you pass an offer like that up?

    We will be in Memphis in May. I am not sure of the exact dates. As long as the dates don't conflict with our events in Memphis I am up for wherever.

    Two years ago in Vegas there were, I dunno, over a hundred of us. And we all had a good time.

    Last year in Chicago there were less than a dozen. Not enough for quality networking.

    This year I won't go unless it's in Vegas or Southern California. May not go even then.

    Vegas was a good turnout. I met a few nice ABWers there but was called away early for a major issue with then full time j*b. I'd love to see another one setup.

    I vote for Vegas. I had a blast at the affiliate summit in Vegas this January. If we do Vegas I expect a private party that rivals the parties at the summit

    I doubt I would fly out to CT if it was held out there. Easier to drive to Vegas.

    Let's do one in Connecticut for TriState, in fact for east coast, affiliates and managers. There is big potential turnout there as well.

    Im game for Vegas too... pick a date and if not a conflict already, count me in.

    If enough people have an interest, i'll even do a "mini AMC" seminar and pick a few topics focused on affiliate issues. Nothing long, maybe a 2 - 4 hour session of topics of interest. No cost, just to add value to those attending. Let me know...

    How about airline flight availability, especially for people who would look for economy flights or specials?

    rather well-populated state; should be something near a major tourist draw.

    suggesting, in that case, the casino Mohegan Manor. I understand it is built along circular lines and that makes it easier to find each other.

    I live on the east coast (NYC) but Connecticut is not Chicago and it certainly isn't Vegas. I don't fault carolyn (who supplies the Chicago room) nor Brian who supplied the lunch. Both were top notch. But people didn't come. I suppose last years problem (well one of them) was that there was too many conventions in June when we scheduled it. Let's try for early may in LV and everyone who comes will have a good time. Who did schedule vegas 2 years ago, you did a great job. Please do it again. I suggest Friday-Sunday May 5-7th). If you wait longer then you'll run into the other affiliate type comferences that are around june.

    I do remember in vegas that Andy had an excellent speech/chat. There were lots and lots of people and the really good networking was happening at the buffets. Although ebay did put on a good spread too. Must have worked since I have ebay links all over my site now.

    I guess the first thing is, who actually arranges these things? We need a leader (I mean a leader in general but Leader the person ;-) to do what is necessary, like 1) find a room and 2) pay for it 3) get ebay or someone to cater a lunch etc.

    I would have proposed this earlier but I have been very busy with family medical problems. I wish I would ahve remembered 2 or 3 weeks ago, may will be here before we know it and I think June will be too late b/c of other conventions.

    I don't want to rain on everyones' parade, but what about Florida? The Affiliate Summit is going to be in Orlando, but have you seen the prices to go to that? It's really high.

    There was Vegas, then Chicago, what about the other end of the country? Come down here, hang out with Mickey Mouse, save me and my wife some money by not having to go far! C'mon, who's with me?!

    I would probably be interested. I don't care where it is, but either or both of these would be a plus:

    1) If it's in a fun area at a good time of the year. It's not as fun to go to Florida in the middle of summer or to New York or Chicago in the winter.

    2) If it's right before or after any other conference, in the same city. I'm hoping to be at the Affiliate Summit, LinkShare Symposium and CJU this year.
