Thanks Lon. My swissy had a left rear rupture about 3 years ago. Rt held up. Surgeon said about 50% that ruptured one will rupture the other. When both are healed your dog will be better than new in this regard. I remember your dog well and his first illness long ago.

I'm assuming at the After Hours party on Thursday. I'll be there about a half hour late, if that's still the planned meet up.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

That seems like a safe assumption. Are you going to that other event too?

I can only get down to CEDIA on Thursday around late afternoon and plan on staying all day Friday and at least part way through Saturday. Got my hotel all set... only have to walk a block and BAM! I'm in audio nirvana. At least I'll be seeing you at 6. You'll have to give us unfortunate souls who could not attend the Yamaha show the low down, the skinny, the straight dope.

I will be at the Dolby/Auro conference on Friday too. Better be good... for $150!! [grumble, grumble]

Now if only CEDIA will get back to me about my press-accommodation. It's been two weeks since I submitted the press accommodation form but I have yet to receive a confirmation from them. (I submitted that I need lodging for Wed/Thu/Fri Nights - I fly out Saturday morning)

....or anybody want to go halfsies?

If by to tomorrow I don't hear anything from CEDIA press organizer, may I know the hotel you're staying and their contact number? As I am a disabled, I need to be as close as possible to the convention centre.

No problem. I'm staying at the Curtis Hotel. 303-571-0300. I got it booked through the CEDIA attendee housing "machine" online. It was on a wait list... and then it wasn't. Check it out ASAP.

I'm being dropped off at the hotel, so I have to hoof it around for a few days. Thank goodness a space opened up.

Edit: It's back on the Wait List. However, the Crowne Plaza just opened up and the rates aren't too bad ($170 a night for a double room). It's about as close as the Curtis. 0.2 miles.

The rooms are being held in blocks by CEDIA (I couldn't book directly through various hotels for the Expo days and I tried). I think, no matter what, you'll have to call the CEDIA housing organization directly to get things straightened out. I would do it now, if possible.

I just contacted them but because of my press status, the said I can't get press pricing if I book through them and they gave me an 877 number that deals with CEDIA press accommodation. I'll try that tomorrow, if it fails then I'll book at The Curtis at their regular rate.

As far I can tell from my experiences, CEDIA has many of the rooms locked out at the surrounding hotels for regular reservations (just like many large corporate conventions that come to town). You have to create a housing account online (or call them directly) http://expo.cedia.net/register-plan/travel/hotel-reservations/attendee-housing

I chose the non-CEDIA member button, since I'm not "one of them." I still received a discounted rate (it was for a single-bed room, so pretty reasonable).

I'll try that tomorrow. I just hope they don't mess up my bookings further (ie charged my CC for the booking via CEDIA press AND personal booking.

Call Oliva Sellke at 317-328-4336 ext. 130 (or used the toll free 800-669-5329) and she should be able to set you up for a hotel room from the press block.

Just about to make my flight res. I know everyone likes to stay close to the convention, but I usually get a cheap hotel and drive on in. I will have to rent a car this year, but that shouldn't be a big deal.

I got a great deal from Price Line went to Express Deals in Westminster Bloomfield and they list a guest favorite for $72. It includes free parking and breakfast. The hotel is the Springhills Inn by Marriott. Amazing price.
The don't give the name until you book it.

This will be my first time going. I am only able to be there on Thursday, but that brings up a question. Why is it that there are no manufacturer training sessions (you know, the free ones) on Thursday?


There is CEDIA training on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday... Oviously the Certifications stuff has to happen after people experience CEDIA training, so that makes sense for it to start on Friday. But again, not a single Manufacturer Product Training on Thursday...

Is that normal? I can't change the date that I am going, so I guess it doesn't matter, but I was just wondering for future years.

This place is not far from downtown. Great if you are staying more than one night. If not there are deals near the airport.

I was told the Curtis was filled up when I tried to book press housing thru CEDIA back in mid-June. I ended up booking at the Embassy Suites instead. It cost me about $100 more per night than the Curtis (where I stayed last year) but I wife is coming along I'm certain she will like the facilities at the Embassy Suites better than the minimal facilities at the Curtis. Since there is no AVS party on Friday evening this year I might change hotels for Friday night to something out by the airport and save some $$$.

Dan - can you post a link for other AVS forum members that want to sign up for the 6pm (until ?) Thur. Atmos 'thing' and when it's over I suggest everyone come on down to the CEDIA After Hours Party.

I don't think there was ever an "official" open forum sign up that I am aware of. I'll be at the After Hours party right afterwards and share my thoughts.
