I just got my approval last week. I will be staying at the Renaissance, I plan on staying from the 11th to the 16th. I couldn't find any free transportation to/from the World Resort so I be renting.
This will be my 3rd WES and yeah it does look like the guest speakers are not that great this year.
Really though RIM needs to step up to Cisco's Live/Networkers event they had last year. They had KISS perform @ Cisco's event in Anaheim, Calif. Come on RIM. Maybe Boy Genius can make some calls here and get some real entertainment.
The most we can hope for is that the sponsors will host parties for us like they did last year. Yahoo had there own little party at WES 2007, and so did others aka Verizon and others.
Also, is the WES party still at Planet Hollywood this year?
