Greetings from fabulous Las Vegas where we are kicking off some of the pre-conference fun today at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino (I’ve been here a few days already as my wife and I snuck out early to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary, which was yesterday, and we have just been having a blast!). :-)

GET YOUR FREE EXPO PASS
If you can’t come to the full conference but still want to check out the exhibits, watch some demos, catch some of the free Expo-floor classes and take advantage of some of the show specials, you can get a FREE expo-only pass — here’s the link. 

THE TWEET UP IS BACK!!!!
Except now it’s called “THE MEET UP” and it’s tonight at the “Eye Candy” bar in the center of the Mandalay Bay Casino (you can’t miss it) and it starts around 9:00-ish. It’s a great place to meet some of the folks you’ll be spending the rest of the week with (I’ll be there, along with all “The Photoshop Guys” from NAPP.

LIVE STREAMING THE OPENING KEYNOTE
Now, I haven’t 100% fully confirmed this yet (because all of my staff is out partying in Vegas tonight), but I believe we are going to be streaming the opening keynote, including Adobe’s full presentation, tomorrow morning (Wednesday) at 9:00 AM PT (pacific time) and if we do, it will probably be broadcast at kelbytv.com/onair (well, that’s my best guess anyway). Hope you can catch it (of course, if we actually do stream it, which I think we are, but hey ya never know. I missed a few meetings).

HOWEVER, I expect there to be some cool stuff and surprises at the keynote (there always is), so make sure you check it out. :)

OK, I’D BETTER HIT THE SACK
Big day today —- our Pre-Conference workshops kick off today, and the final rehearsals for the keynote and all that stuff is happening, so it’ll be a busy day so I’m going to hit the sack. Hope I get to meet you in person today, and here’s wishing you a totally Vegas kinda day! :)
