Yup, I'm doing the vacation home rental also. Screw staying in a cramped, overpriced hotel!

My company wants to send me, all expenses paid, to a 5 star resort where the service and facilities are beyond great..... be wined and dined with 5,000 of the most awesomely fun herd of I.T. nerds.....and all I have to do is make sure I show up! How great is that!

I stayed off site last year and found it to be very tiring going back and forth and lugging around all my stuff during the day. Even having a car - it was a pain because it was such a looong walk thru the parking lot.
Looking forward to sleeping in a little longer in the morning and being able to leave and pick up things from my room as I need it. Perhaps even take a nap!

IMHO It's worth the price of admission to be at the Marriott.
Perhaps if my family was going with me I'd consider renting a house.....
Nahhh! They like being pampered just as much as me.
I agree though - if you're footing the bill for your family, a house rental would be easier on the budget.

Just my 2 cents

That's awesome man! BBM or email me your flight info. Hope you get there on Sunday morning. We can "network" for the rest of the day Sunday and Monday. I think AlanM is getting there early afternoon on Sunday.

I wasn't that impressed with the Marriott when I stayed there a few years ago at another conference. Unless you have a nice suite, there's nothing special about the hotel room IMO. I just completed the rental deal and have a private heated pool and jacuzzi at the 5BR, 3BA house. I enjoy being able to spread out and relax and since I'm bringing the kids, this works out much better than everyone being cramped in a hotel room.

Only thing I'll need to "lug" with me is my BlackBerry.

No official meet & greet for us yet. Last year, we all kinda met up at the Boxtone Lounge and at the WICKSoft booth... . I hope Will and Shayne make it again this year.

Has anyone heard yet what the entertainment will be for the RIM Party this year? No big deal, just curious.

I don't think anyone knows yet that I have heard. AT&T isn't saying either. Just says "surprise guests" on their event invite.

I've heard rumors, but nothing solid. Lets see what we know and what we can speculate on.....

Last year John Mayer was sponsored by BlackBerry on his tour.
This year, BlackBerry is sponsoring U2. Their tour starts in Barcelona on June 30; more than enough time to play in Orlando. And their only other Florida stop is in Tampa.

I think we can arrange that. Now we just have to decide which external BES fellowship activity will enhance our communication and teamwork skills.
I'm even considering Universal as WES is a world-wide event and we want to be sure to encompass as many diverse activities as possible.

I will be attending this year alone, due to the restrictions on travel. I will need to hook up with some new friends this year.

Thats already been established....AT&T has updated their site as well to reflect "Top Gun Party".....supergay. The only reason i'm going is open bar and hopes of another free blackberry. Who knows, with all the free drinks i may be in the middle of the dancefloor by the end of the night singing along to Footloose, Danger Zone, and who can forget the "I'm Alright" themesong from Caddyshack!
