Default WES 2010

Since it's budget time for next year, how many of you are looking like you're tentatively heading down to WES this next year?

My boss put money in the budget for me to go, but don't know if it's been approved yet.

Our department took a 20% pay cut and our company is barely afloat.
I'm guessing I won't be going to WES anytime soon.

Default Awaiting word ..

Submitted to attend part of my 2010 training so we'll see. Likely will depend on admin track and what mobility projects are approved for 2010.

Does that mean your looking for a new position?

I'm hoping, but it will certainly be a position where I'll probably only be able to go if asked to speak again and can get a free pass. I can swing the travel by myself (love AirTran's cheap flights to Orlando), but the conference fees are what throw a wrench into it all.

Approved. Flight purchased and hotel reserved, even if attendwes.com states you can make your hotel reservation with your conference reservation. I'm not taking any chances of NOT getting into the Marriott. Also staying an extra day and using my Marriott Reward points for the room!

It looks like I won't be attending this year. Unfortunately, this falls the week before my college finals (yes, I'm going back to school to finally get my degree after a decade break). Sigh. Have fun for me.

But... who is going to scream "PATRONE" at the bartenter every 6 minutes? Certainly not me.

Last week, I tried reserving a room at the Marriott, but no rooms are available. Ugh, guess I'll have to wait for the registration to open up.

Which is why you reserve your room for the following year's WES the day after it ends like Darth does.

I almost took the Marriott deal last year where they had a week's worth of stay for 75% off. I should have done it.

Default Registration is now open

Registration for WES 2010 is now open WES 2010: The Wireless Enterprise Symposium for BlackBerry Users Get $400 off the early bird rate when you register by February 19th. Alumni also receive another $100 discount.
