    Anyone else going from the UK?

      Hi,

       

       

      Just wondered if there were any other people travelleing from the UK for Vmworld 2008? I'm there for 6 days from the Saturday so I've got a couple of days to climatise and have a look around Vegas for the first time. If there's enough of us maybe we could meet up for a bit of networking/drinking if anyones up for it?

            Excellent, not just me then!

             

             

            I've never heard of Xtravirt (until now), quite an interesting website there. Already got something good out of this!

             

             

            I'm staying the in the Venetian hotel, seemed the easiest option when I was booking it. Thanks to Virgin Atlantic I get an extra day there as the flight was some £600 more on the Sunday so my boss asked if I wouldn't mind going the day before!

             

             

            I'm guessing this won't be your first Vmworld?

                Yep, I'll be there too, I've managed a full week (Friday to Friday) in order to get the cheapest flight options. I was lucky enough to do SF last year too, which was simply the best works related thing I've ever attended so I have high hopes for this one too. May see you folks around, I'm staying in the Flamingo.

                  The flights did work out really well - was fun telling the boss I can either go on Saturday for £700, or the Sunday for £1300! 'You better go for the extra day then - keep costs down!'

                   

                   

                  I relunctantly accepted.

                   

                   

                  Can't wait to go either - my first real conference/time in Vegas/meeting other people who've used this technology other than me!
