    I don't think I can resist the excuse for a Vegas trip to attend my first MACNA :Party

    I am seriously considering MACNA next year. The hotel room will be cheap for me, but what does it cost for the conference itself.

    Does everyone go to every event or are we allowed to go and do our own thing?

    Currently $109 for a full pass. Limited time at that price. I wish I could commit to it, but I don't know yet.

    I really want to go but being the week after Labor Day means that I would have to miss at least 1-2 days right after school starts and I'm not sure if I can get away with that being the sole IT staff. Need to have a conversation with my boss next week about this...

    Pass gets you in the doors to event center. What you do is up to you. Stand around in a corner drooling at corals? Go listen to speakers? Go back to your hotel and cry about your new 2nd mortgage? Whatever you want.

    Got approval from work and the wife to go. Ticket and MACNA shirts ordered!

    Happy to provide Las Vegas travel advice if anyone planning to attend hasn't been to Vegas before.

    I really need to start going to these regularly. The timing is so very inconvenient though in terms of my classes.
