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 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.

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.

Nobody's getting any work done.

Everyone is watching a Phoenix, AZ clock.

Get back to work people! There's money to make! Set an alarm! ;)

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!

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).

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.
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".

Hopefully I'm not moving too fast on this. I have award travel points through an old American Airlines credit card and the miles have just been sitting there for a couple years. I finally have a reason to use them so they didn't expire! My flight is now booked and it only cost me $11.20. :cool:

I'll be arriving Thursday around 1:30PM. The return flights were all awkward so in the best interest of me not stressing out and missing a connection, I will be flying back home after the event at 1:35AM Sunday morning.

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.

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!

@MJ DeMarco I have to ask because I am neurotic and want to be absolutely certain that I have the right time so that I can buy the ticket: this translates to 1 pm Eastern Standard Time today, correct?
You mean you’re not going to neurotically be checking the forum every fifteen minutes since 5am just to make sure you don’t miss it?!???

Oh I see.. that’s just me. (I’m so happy that you asked cuz I totes wanted to too but then I was like, “I am a successful amazing brilliant entrepreneur dammit! I can figure out time zones!!”)

But really. I can’t figure out time zones. Hence the checking.

Hahahaha!

Is the ticket sale link going to be posted in this thread or another thread for insiders?
