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!). :-)

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. 

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.

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 (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. :)

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! :)

  5. Have fun Scott! Wish I could be there

  6. Can’t make it to Vegas — again. Any word as yet on where the spring east-coast version will be next year?

  7. I always love the opening Keynote with that craziness that ensues.  My question is the time. You said 9 EST (Eastern Standard Time) but I remember from other Photoshop Worlds that nobody gets up that early in Vegas. Could it be starting at 9 in Vegas which would make it 11 EST. Or do you guys just have so much Photoshop World goodness going on that everyone must start at the crack of dawn. (Well dawn being a relative term)

  8. And I’m in Florida crying. :`(

  9. Welcome to LasVegas!!  I cant make it to any of the workshops but Im coming to the Expo, with my free pass!  Im so excited cant wait to see whats NEW in the World of Photography!!
