It's never too early to plan for NAB!

There are crazy lodging and airfare deals in Las Vegas right now. For those of you who have Alegiant Airlines some of the rates are as low as $40 each way from the smaller markets.

I will be there all the way from New Zealand.

Looking forward to meeting some operators and getting some advice.

I think I flew for $12 last year from Bellingham which is like a 30-45 minute drive from Vancouver and the customs is faster driving vs flying, so it was like a win 3x over. Airfare from Vancouver was like $300. It wasn't too bad either really, I expected a lot worse for $12.

Is there usually a Steadicam party? This'll be my first NAB. Also, I just bought my first steadicam (PILOT) a couple weeks ago. :)

Wow I can't believe how inexpensive it is even with hotel and car thrown in using Alegiant from Bellingham. Seriously reconsidering.

Make sure you reserve the hotel through NAB at http://www.nabshow.c...avel/hotels.asp They have the lowest prices and each of the hotels listed include a complimentary shuttle to and from the Convention Center.

Also...

RT @supodcast: Use the code "PP01" at http://bit.ly/4z7Jua to register for a free exhibit floor pass at NAB. ($150 value)

I just booked for NAB, will be there from the 11th. Im staying at the MGM Grand (this is my first time in Vegas so I wanted the full tacky vegas experience)

I booked through Expedia in the UK, and flights/hotel package was pretty cheap all in.


I will hopefully have a prototype upgraded focus motor to show you lot... I have high hopes for it, would love your feedback.


Pete.
