Venue locked in

January 06, 2011 · No Comments

It certainly took a lot of negotiating, but we have secured the venue.  Blythe has locked in a nearby hotel for a great nightly rate since the main venue couldn't get prices below $195 a night.  That's just way too high for a bunch of volunteer speakers that are travelling internationally for this SQLSaturday.

What would I do differently?  Start sooner with the venue, negotiate hard, and lock it in before doing a lot of advertising.  We have some time pressures in order to take advantage of the MVP event in Seattle so we've had to push hard and fast to get this together.
