I just learned last night that for the first time ever, B&H Photo will have their own live Training Theater on the Photoshop World Expo Floor in Vegas (the conference is coming up Oct 1-3, 2009 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino).
I’m going to try and weasel my way into their theater for a couple of demos myself (maybe of the Westcott Spiderlites or the new Elinchrom Quadra gear, or both), but since I just learned about it last night, I haven’t confirmed anything yet, but I’ll let ya know as soon as the schedule is announced. (Note: the photo above is of the Kelby Training Theater on the Expo floor).
Also, just a heads up: I don’t know if the room rates in Vegas have ever been less (well, certainly not since we’ve been doing our conference there), and airfares are really affordable now, too, so if you’ve always wanted to go….this may be your best chance yet. I did a quick check of roundtrip airfares today, and here’s an example of what I mean (of course, subject to change at the airlines whim):
All prices are Roundtrip:
- From Seattle: $204.20 (Southwest)
- From Orlando: $253 (Delta)
- From Los Angeles: $109 (Delta)
- From New York : $258 (Delta)
- From Dallas: $273 (Continental)
- From Denver: $197.20 (Southwest)
- From Chicago: $268 (Delta)
- From Miami: $263 (Northwest)
- From San Jose: $194.20 (Southwest)
