For those that don’t know yet, rooms at the conference hotels and class availability are first come first serve. In 2008, the conference hotel booked solid before general registration opened. How? well, it was those AUGI and subscription people that did it. They get first dibs before general community.
There may still be rooms available at the convention hotel, Mandalay Bay. Once those are gone, farther locations will be booked, such as the Luxor, Mirage, and the Venetian.
