    No. I did not see the option. They had spots for 150 people only. No more discount after that. Now the rooms are $399 a night. Ridiculous. They got me to $349 but still dumb. Id have cancelled if they were not bringing my replacement aspire usb key.
    Glad its my shop I am responsible for - I only have to make me happy.

    Plus parking? Plus valet? After a decade of travel servicing machines I have learned that some locations are simply too expensive to be worth going to unless compensated.

    $399 per night plus parking plus another $200 for vectric? That is ridiculous. Plenty of other hotels to give your business to in the area without getting ripped off. Part of the problem is that of every city in the US, they chose Chicago.

    It was a good conference, lots of material, kept moving along quickly with plenty of breaks. A very good complement to McGrew's Aspire camp held in April.

    Wanted to pass on the hotel made my charges right without even asking. Kevin the sales guy is great. We had a great time.

    Next trip prob just take a train ride up and uber to hotel. You can walk to anything there.

    The Vectric crew is AWESOME. Great folks. Had a great time.

    Start getiing your 4th axis together folks.

    Mike, I'm glad you enjoyed the event. The Vectric folks I met at Jim McGrew's event (Beki and I forget the dude's name) were great to talk with and very informative.
