NAR Convention Reminder: Might Want to Book Those Rooms Soon!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Savvy Home Strategies Realty, LLC-REALTOR®-Estate-Probate B.1000860.LLC

 Fred's post got me wonderin.  I usually attend the Global Gaming Expo and knew it was about the same time as the NAR conference.  I checked the convention calendar and sure enough it does!

The Global Gaming Expo (G2E) will bring just as many attendees as NAR, so for just the two conventions alone there will be 50,000 attendees.  Forget all of the other little conferences!  Room Inventory is only around 133,000 right now.

I did recommend to Fred to google "Vacation Rentals Las Vegas" and gather a group of friends if you are looking for a less expensive alternative.  Also, when searching hotels in Las Vegas, don't forget Henderson!  Green Valley Ranch is about a 30 minute drive down the freeway.  Going the other direction (west) the JW Marriott (pictured left) is a gorgeous property and the Suncoast is right next door and in great proximity to MANY great golf courses, if you were planning to do something silly like that.  I hate golfing, can you tell?  

Many off strip properties have free or low cost transportation to strip areas or the convention center.  Please make sure you look it up or call them and ask about transportation and drop off points/times. 

Just be warned:  the days of inexpensive buffets and cheap entertainment are GONE.  So if you are on a Realtor diet, be prepared.  Fred's wife didn't get the memo :)  Maybe you can just crash some of G2E's awesome parties MUhahahahaha! (just kidding!)

Hi Lane...When is the SMA Show this Year in Los Vegas?

What - you mean those $1.99 buffets are no longer??  Did they go up to $5.99 or something?  I was sure there was a memo that said you and John Novak were opening up your house to AR members going to the NAR Convention.  Was that memo a total fake?    ;-)

I was in Vegas last year and I was shocked at the restaurant prices - Renee is right, the bargain meals are long gone so bring more than pocket change!

So no one is allowed to sleep on your couch???

If you know any high-rollers... this is a good time to start kissing a little tail to get casino rates too! They often beat the pants off of convention rates.

Lane:  There's another huge show all by itself!

Joan:  YES!  I pointed it out last night to my husband.  This town is going to be full of "mes and yous".  Scary really.

Desiree:  You found me  out :wink:

Dena:  I think it will be a good time.  I still haven't got my tickets but since we will be busy with G2E also I will probably buy a one or two day pass with expo.

George:  I think that plan was that you could all sleep in tents in the desert behind my house and take a bath in my swimming pool.  Are you still game?

Lola:  As always :grin:

Fred:  LOL!  

Jennifer:  I will definitely pop by to see you!

Neal:  :(

Missy:  Most definitely welcome!

Ann:  See my comments to George, we are still on :wink:

Steve:  It is insane.

David:  I already have two agents coming in from AZ and KY crashing with me :)

If you really want a break from Las Vegas, try Lake Las Vegas. We had a conference at the Ritz Carlton there, and their concierge level is far and above any competition. It's another world out there.

Lane: :sad face:  I do want to someday convert part of our garage/son's room and make a third story for a vacation rental.  They are developing a ton out here and we have great proximity to the airport and south strip.  Unfortunately I can't help you out now :(

My room and flight are booked (just waiting on my passport) and I can't wait to get there. I've been wondering what AR members will be attending and made a post about the conference as well.

I'm glad I found your post Renee. Thanks!
