EDS and ECIA

It is good to know that the show will be hosted by ECIA which is a consolidation od the two different organizations. Definitely this will keep things simple since only one sponser is doing this. I also wish you are able to find the right candidates for the clients at the show.

It seems to come pretty close to that Barbara, but we would have to know if the pot holds 8 cups or more. If it holds 8 cups, it would be $25 per cup.  Compared to that Starbucks is a real bargain!

I was smiling the whole time I read this post. For those of us who have attended EDS for so many years, it's great to see a perspective from the "other side of the badge." There's a point at which a cup of coffee is priceless!

The pricy coffee is part of the Las Vegas attraction. The real purpose of the EDS Show was attained with all that is listed below . Yes, it will be painful for new business owners and talents seeking new shores, but what you can gain from networking may be a pain reliever or even a major breakthrough.

Its all worth it!

I used to cover EDS in Vegas. I can see your point about prices. This event was tradtionally a major networking event that was broken into two segments: the suite meetings and the show floor. All I know is the best place to see everyone was by pre-appointment or by being visible right in the lobby itself...not too far from the coffee shop behind the tables.

Ashish, you can take a trip to Vegas in the name of research. Personally, though, I have no intention of visiting there.

Ariella,

I am a big-big Fan of the Show-"Las Vegas" and not once have I heard about this price disparity on it....[That does'nt mean everything on the show is an accurate representation of life in Vegas!!!]

But parts of what you say would'nt exactly surprise me.I mean is'nt it a known fact that Casinos make money only when People Gamble?

I guess its time to put your theory to the test then???

Regards

Ashish.

    Networkings at a conference uncover opportunities that are starting to bubble, but have yet to break the surface. One of my favorite places to do this is at industry conferences and large seminars. The benefits from networking in a conference environment are immense such as meeting new people who can give you new research, product, or information leads that will open up new possibilities for me, so it pays to keep my mind focused on these rather than worrying about putting a foot wrong.

    Not only getting a chance to hear about new trends and breakthrough ideas that can help in our business or career, but also get a chance to meet other folks who are highly interested in the same thing and willing to make the investment to attend.

@Ariella, That's an interesting technique to raise revenue what they are doing in Vegas.

As far as $200 coffee is concerned, I feel if the expenditure might be justified if the company is able to reap the benefits out of their participation by getting big potential clients or getting into contact with valuable human resources.

On the cost of coffee: I've heard that Vegas operates on a system in which people are encouraged to come into where the gambling is and that the drinks are cheaper in there. They know if people stay in their rooms, they will not be enticed to play the games at which the house really makes its money, so they will try to make up their own losses in jacking up the price of room service. To really test the theory, though, someone would have to come up with comparable price list for the hotel.
