I should mention that speaker invites are still pending and NOT ALL invites have been sent. So if you submitted a speaker proposal and have not received an invite, that does NOT mean you haven't been selected. At this point, not even half of the invites have been sent.

Thanks for doing this. I’ve been anticipating it.

Is the 80 tickets the total max number? So if 80 insiders purchase tickets, then nobody else will be able to get any? And the event will be 80 people? Just curious how that will work.

I've have some latitude to add more if demand warrants. 80 is general admission, there will be at last 14 speakers, so 95 total.

Thanks for putting the tickets on sale on Monday, MJ! I have a flight on hold, so it will make me less nervous to have a ticket. I'd hate to have to hover in the halls, trying to listen, while pretending I'm just some random hotel guest.

I’d sneak you in and we could use you as a lesson to all these other mofos spouting excuses about not being able to make it. Where there’s a will there’s a F*cking way.

@Primeperiwinkle, thanks for offering, but I don't think you'll have to worry because I have an alarm set on my phone so I can buy tickets. As soon as MJ announced the conference, I told my family that I was going to a business conference in February. I am arriving on Thursday (flight lands at 2) and leaving on Sunday (around 5). I look forward to meeting everyone. We are going to have a blast!

For those talking about booking a room OUTSIDE of the room block, please DO NOT. (Sorry @Bekit I had to delete your post!)

You should not be able to find something cheaper, and if you do, it's probably because a resort fee or taxes wasn't added prior.

My largest risk in this venture is having to guarantee rooms booked through the block.

If I come up short on attendees not booking rooms, I have to pay for shortage.

So if 50 room nights are not booked, guess who has to come up with the money? I do. And not just a few hundreds bucks, but $12,000 (in the case of a 50 shorted).

And if that happens guess what? There will never be a Summit again.

So please, if you are planning to book a room, A) Please do so at the hotel and B) Please do so with the room block code which should be provided next week.

Thank you.

I was just starting to type something out about this. I saw the deal too, which looks like a 24 hour sale. After adding in the resort fee, it came out to just under the blocked price for this event. I was going to ask what the benefit for the blocked rooms were going to be but then I remembered that blocked rooms usually have a minimum required to be reserved. I had to do it for my wedding and needed a minimum number to not have to cover the rest of the cost. It definitely makes you a little anxious as you see reservations come in slowly. I was actually reminding people to book their rooms before the cut off date so I could get it covered -- and make sure they had a room reserved.

With that said, I'm going to wait. I almost reserved one just because there was no cancellation penalty. I talked to my wife again today about it now that it has been announced and we're still on board. Hopefully I'll be able to get a ticket!

I will also mention to the hotel that the hotel block price should be the same, if not less, than any advertised price or sale.

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry about this! I had heard about hitting the room block minimums in the past but totally didn't think of it in this case. No worries, MJ, glad you deleted my post, and if you want me to cancel and get a room within the block, I can do that, too.

Definitely understand the situation. I'll be booking through whatever the thread says, in order to be in a block. To clarify, would we be booking a room at the hotel for one night or are some planning on staying until Monday (Two nights)?

And if it @MJ DeMarco helps to mention to the hotel and get a better deal... I just found a ticket for $363.73 (This is including taxes and fees).

Thank you. And that might be why my previous post's price differs. Because the check-in was on Friday and not Thursday. Makes sense.

Yes, I would appreciate that, but ONLY if it doesn't cost you any money.

I will hit up the hotel to see if I can get the room rates lower, the room block should be the cheapest available, even with a "sale".

That's a large block of rooms! Thanks very much for creating this event.
Everyone can find $202 discount prices at TTS sometimes, but here's the deal.
Discount rooms usually are not that great, are next to a noisy elevator or club, under-ventilated, no view, something's skewampus in the room design...don't do it!
They're probably reserving some pretty damn good rooms for the summit at the current price.

Not asking to be pelted with hurled rotten fruit here, but could I make the request that we guarantee at least half or all the rooms are on the highest floors please, given that it is four months away? Everyone needs the energizing AZ panorama from above.

Hey MJ,

because of my long travel it won't be worth it for me to only stay for the weekend. Therefore I want to come some days earlier(to avoid jetlag during the event) and stay several days longer in Scottsdale.

Is it possible to book a longer duration than only the weekend with your room block code?

Thanks for making the summit possible again!
