ALERT! CommVEx 2013 moving to Jockey Room 1 in Plaza Hotel

Post by rbernardo »

Today, another new Plaza Hotel contact, Kelly, informed me that due to technical issues it would be best that we change from Ballroom 8 to Jockey Room 1. I agreed, even though it is only 9 days to CommVEx. Jockey Room 1, a room that we have used in past CommVExes, is located at the bottom of the ramp to the third floor garage. Advantages of Jockey Room 1 -- easier to move hardware into the room due to its proximity to the garage and more visibility for passers-by to see the room. Disadvantage of Jockey Room 1 - a smaller room in comparison to Ballroom 8 or last year's Left Field Room at the sister hotel.

That being said, everything is still go for CommVEx. New for this year -- not one but two AmigaOne X1000s will be on exhibit. Also Retrogaming Radio will be hanging around and may broadcast from the show (if our wi-fi signal is strong enough).

The updates continue to come, and so, watch the website below or the forum here for the latest information.

Well, that stinks. I hope that they refund some money for the reduced size room. I expected to see more people this year, needing that space.

When I meet with Kelly of the Plaza Hotel on Wednesday, that is one of the first things I will ask.

Heh, if too many attendees come in, we'll all be getting very friendly with each other. ;)

Truly,

I'm really worried it will be too small. Even with the extra space last year, it felt cramped. And I know a few new people will be here this year. Hope we can get by ok :)

Agreed, I'm worried about space.

Can we pitch in and upgrade the room size? or are there no other rooms available?

It's too late to upgrade. The room is already prepped with ten 8-foot tables and plenty of chairs.

Well, now Kelly has moved us to Jockey Room 2 (next door), due to technical issues. I'll have to talk to her about moving us without my permission. But Jockey Room 2 will be fine...
