ALERT! CommVEx 2017 moves back to Plaza Hotel!
In late summer/early autumn 2016, our original venue for the Commodore Vegas Expo, the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas, was unavailable for 2017
reservations. Thus, CommVEx was booked into the California Hotel. However, there was always a chance that CommVEx could return to the Plaza when reservations were to open in April, 2017.
The Plaza Hotel opened up its reservations early! As of March 1, CommVEx is now booked into the Plaza Hotel for July 29-30! With the return to the Plaza, CommVEx exhibitors and attendees will have the perks of the hotel – Friday afternoon and evening set-up, unlimited Saturday evening showroom use, overnight storage in the showroom, and a relaxed Sunday take-down of equipment. As in years past, here is the schedule -
Friday set-up – 4 p.m. to the finish of set-up
Saturday set-up – 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Saturday official CommVEx showtimes – 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday unofficial CommVEx late-night – 5 p.m. to close of doors
Sunday set-up – 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Sunday official CommVEx showtimes – 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday take-down – 5 p.m. until everything is out of the room
Like last year, we have reserved the use of a 2,000 square foot ballroom with the possibility of another 2,000 square foot ballroom if it is vacant on the CommVEx weekend. At the moment, the only mystery is which ballroom we will receive. That will be announced later.
I'd like to thank the following for their patience and support these last few months – Al Jackson and his Las Vegas Commodore friends, the Fresno
Commodore User Group, and the Southern California Commodore & Amiga Network, and The Other Group of Amigoids.
CommVEx is go!

This is great! CommVEx (and Defcon) are both the weekend before VCF West (Aug. 5-6), so now people can go to both.
