    New Venue ..

    They're moving the DJ Expo again this year from the AC Convention Center to the Harrah's Resort in the Marina District. Puts it further away from the boardwalk and the restaurants, although the 3 hotels up in the marina area (Harrahs, Borgata, Golden Nugget) are very nice.

    I would have preferred the older spot .. previously Trump Taj Mahal .. now a Hardrock Hotel .. but either there was a $$ issue or they aren't ready with the renovations.

    Dates are August 13-16 .. I'll post again when I see reservations are open and also when I see discount codes.

    Hopefully they'll fix some of the issues they had last year. The noise in the exhibit hall was just out of control. I couldn't even talk to the reps in the booth without screaming. They need to separate it into a quiet area and a noisy area . The exception of meeting Steve & Cap for dinner and winning the photobooth it was the worst one for me and I've been to each one since the first one.
    I like the old too but this new location has to be better than the convention center. Well, we will seen I usually make it at least one day. I am going to talk with my son & see how he feels about staying more than one day if our schedule allows it.

    Isn't there a standing and pre-paid transportation offer for Mix to meet and show his skills somewhere? He still has not taken up that offer.

    I miss the AC shows. They used to be great (when I was presenting! LOL) I used them as an excuse to see my parents who at the time were alive and well on the East Coast. But now I don't get out as much.

    I plan to go this year, but it depends. ...My family is going on a vacation to Disney in May for 2 weeks. It's the big vacay we have been talking about for the last 3 years. I will be coming back broke...if I am recooperated financially by August I plan to go for over night, but that really depends on if I'm having a strong wedding season in June/July or not.
