Dinner and lunch plans are being made, flights are being booked, hotel reservations are made. Just one question. Where are people hanging out at the new show venue?
Recently, on Twitter, I asked where the hospitality suites were going to be this year. It did sound like there were going to be several in the Westgate Hotel, which is the “official” host hotel. I went a step further and spoke with Morgan Wilson from Emerald Expositions and he put me in touch with their Marketing Specialist, Daniel Acuna. Daniel sent me a press release that suggested the International Bar (aka, The Fastener Circle Bar) would be the official, unofficial bar for fastener people to mix and mingle amongst their peers. It is located just off the steps of the main lobby in the Westgate.
To support this spot as a central meeting location, Emerald will have a “Whiskey Night” and also beer and drink specials on October 18-19. According to Daniel the bar is open 24/7 and that ought to work out well with the fastener crowd. I’m going to check it out a little further online.
Some folks will still be staying down on the strip and there could be some gatherings down that direction, I imagine. In case any of you are wondering what happened to the old Bourbon Room, here is a little update on what is now called “The Dorsey”:
It’s not been announced officially where the Fastener Show will be located in 2018 but I’m sure that announcement will come before, or certainly at the show.
Where are you going to be hanging out in Vegas??
