Update No. 6: Las Vegas September 24th - 27th - PDMI has started registration & the venue has now been announced

Dear Conference Attendees, Dear ERA Europe members and the global community,

As the summer break progresses, we are now getting more clarity from PDMI on the upcoming Las Vegas event. Please find the latest status update below:

The week began with an announcement by PDMI disclosing the venue of their Las Vegas convention (September 24th-26th, 2018). PDMI has negotiated a very attractive room rate for 179$/night (plus resort fee), (60sqm), if booked by Sept. 2nd. The Rialto Suite (102sqm) is available at 329$/night. Initially the above pricing only applied to the conference days, however after new negotiations the prices now apply from Saturday 22nd until Wednesday 26th September. Apparently the contingent at the Venetian tower has already gone, but a new contingent at the Venetian Palazzo tower has been secured at the same conditions. Both room contingents are the same distance from the Sands Expo Hall and the Lido Ballroom. For those people who booked rooms earlier at a higher rate, we have been informed that their rooms will be automatically adjusted to the lower rate of 179$/night. So you might want to register here for the PDMI summit to enjoy these rates. Please note that meeting facilities must be booked through PDMI. Additional questions about your booking can be addressed to the Venetian hotel directly +1.702.414.1000.

As a separate initiative to the above mentioned venue, we have organised a list of people who have committed themselves to come to Las Vegas. This list is constantly growing. Your voluntary commitment (by signing in) is intended only to help you and your industry peers to understand who is coming. So please sign in* and encourage all your colleagues who are travelling to Vegas to do so too. However the updating of the list may slow down for the next two weeks as the European team will be on summer leave.

We thank you for your support and will continue to send out regular updates on the situation to ensure you are well informed.

Best regards

Julian Oberndörfer

*The only purpose of compiling the list is to give people in our industry an orientation. Especially in the light of expenses which you or your company may already have incurred, when you enter your name into this list of course you may additionally register at any events organised by any other organisation held during the same period in Las Vegas. Entering your name into the ERA Europe list, does however not constitute any obligation to register for any event, it merely signifies that you will be there during the time period so other people can get in touch with you.
