They don't usually announce until January .. They may be waiting for the Hard Rock hotel (previously the Trump Taj Mahal) to update the construction plans. The Taj was a nice location for the Expo and I believe it was cheaper to have the event there than the AC Convention Center ... which made the "deals" at the show better than they were this year.
Registration isn't open yet, but there will be 3 types .. Expo Only (free until June 11th), Full pass ($300), and a new VIP registration ($100) that gets you into some of the parties, the keynote speakers and any "sponsored" session (will need to wait for sessions to be announced to see what those are).
Like I usually remind everyone, sign up for the Expo pass even if you're not certain, as it goes up to $50 after 6/11 (though that date usually moves to July as we get near) and is $85 at the event.
I plan on going the last 2 days .. not sure if Wed-Thu or Tue -Thu .. most likely only to the Expos and meeting others (hopefully many from here). Not planning on the sausage-fest parties.
Everything's in the state of flux right now I have to find out my schedule of events and my sons. But I usually make it for least a day. Last year I think I stayed for three days, had dinner with Cap (big thanks). Steve, a couple other DJ and won the photo booth. So last year was pretty good. But they better do something about all that noise in the exhibit room. Of course I forgot my earplugs. Do you know they were still blasting music even when the show is over because I was there late picking up the booth. We do movies on the beach about a 30 mins north of A/C if they have one that week I will have to invite you guys down. Usually at the location it's kids movies but if the weathers good it's still a good way to chill.
I registered for the exhibitions only (free until June 11th, though they did extend that last year). Not interested in the parties. When they list the sponsored workshops I'll decide if it's worth the $100 for those.
Harrahs Resort is $129 room rate (I think it's $119 if you are a Total Rewards member).
If you have any inkling to go, at least get the free exhibit past before June 11th.
