After two years of trying, I've been approved to go as well. Hope to meet some of you there. I'm also signed up for Hand-On labs and pre-conf training Monday.

Hotel is totally sold out. Bad show. Looks like RIM has totally outgown that location (OK, they outgrew it years ago).

Too bad - I am not staying miles away and driving in and out. I will be missing my first WES.

Man, that was fast. I usually try to register as soon as I can. I have coworkers coming in from Switzerland and Spain for this, so I hope they got a room at the hotel too. Glad I got in.

Try calling in March/April. I'm betting people who didn't get approved to go will be cancelling their reservation then.

And that is not a very nice hotel.
The Renaissance supposedly has rooms. One small notch better than the Doubletree.
Guess the same guys who change routing on Monday are in charge of room management.

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?

I'm so jealous. They should hold the event in London next year, and get everybody over to the UK. You'd all fit in the Dome.

I just finalized the registration. I don't know where I will be staying yet, but looking forward to being there. I will get a little primer at the Gartner Mobile and Wireless event in a couple of weeks !

Oh, Gartner certainly has their opinions about RIM. Send my best to Ken Dulaney

One thing is for sure - Gartner will not be at WES.

Good Opinions, I would think as they rated Research in Motion at the top last year. I would expect Gartner to be at WES because they're not really a vendor to showcase anything.

This will be my first WES show... maybe this is the CES of Wireless??

It's a BlackBerry Lovefest.
Not CES.

I'd keep trying. It took me 3 attempts and I finally got a reservation at the Marriot and canceled my Hyatt reservation.

I had to choose between the Gartner event and WES. Hope I made the right choice. I'd love to hear what you think of the Gartner event and what they have to say.

RIM is not done with the speaker lineup yet. Don't fret

Hi All,

This will be my first WES. Any of you registering for the BlackBerry Training for IT Administrators 1 & 2? Is the second day course worth attending?

... it all depends on how much you're involved in the BES process. If you don't have other training opportunities I would take advantage of it.

Check your PMs
