Recommended Posts

Fellow IPMS USA Members

We are pleased and excited to announce the launch of the 2021 IPMS/USA National Convention website!   We invite you to visit and see what we have in store for you.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to the Rio Hotel Resort and Convention Center in the heart of the fabulous City of Las Vegas.  With over 2,000 all-suite rooms and almost 70,000 square feet of luxurious convention space, The Very Best of the West promises to be a National Convention experience of a lifetime. 


We want you to party hard in the vendor room, so we have secured a special discounted convention room rate of only $113.00 per night (including resort tax) for up to ten days!  Come early, stay late and enjoy our amazing city.  Reservations can be made immediately!


You will also enjoy free on-site parking, 13 restaurants, 14 bars & nightclubs, 4 luxurious swimming pools, on-site shopping, day spa and workout room.  All just an elevator ride away from the convention floor.   You’ll never have to leave the resort to have an amazing time.  But if you chose to do so, the City of Las Vegas is waiting for you.

 

Go to www.natslv2021.com and let the party begin!

 

Thank You

2021 Nat-Con Committee

We have just been informed by the Rio that we are now officially SOLD-OUT of all 2,400 room-nights.

As a courtesy, they will honor the $89.00 discounted room rate for a few more days for weekdays ONLY!

We will be reaching out to other resorts in the area to see if we can secure a discounted room rate for those that missed out.    Thanks

Received our monthly report from the Rio and was pleased to learn that we currently at 2,692 room-nights sold, which equates to 658 individual room reservations.  Also received a fantastic email today from Jose Antonio Castrejon, Vice President of IPMS Mexico who informed me that he will be attending along with a contingent from his group.  We welcome our south of the border model brothers and sisters and look forward to having them join us at the 21' Nats.

Registering also gets you the swag bag which day-trippers don't get.   Pin, decal, brochures, etc.

You may be able to buy the decal sheet from a resale vendor after the show for an additional 10 to 20 bucks.

Great interview Bob. Lot's of good information. The pertinent section starts at the 1:00 hour mark for those that want to get straight to it.

Nats News Flash - Nevada announced yesterday that ALL Covid-19 restrictions (except masks) will be lifted on June 1st. That includes all social distancing restrictions, the opening of all shows, buffets, concerts, restaurants, pools, churches and above all - CONVENTIONS! 

As of yesterday we were expecting record breaking attendance levels, with this great news we are only going to see more. I urge everyone to pre-register NOW!

Bob, I like to go the Vegas regularly and was online looking at rooms and shows.  I know that all the IPMS convention nights have been booked but I noticed that the Rio still has rooms available during the convention at regular rates.  Perhaps you might like to contact them and see if they are interested in increasing our allotment.

That is really a question for IPMS/USA and up until yesterday it was still uncertain as to what our attendance may be.   What you may find interesting is that we already increased our room allotment twice before, and if we do not make our room allotment IPMS/USA will have to pay for every rooms we didn't fill.   As you can imagine that could get expensive, something in the area of ten thousand dollars or more.  As with any show, there are usually a few cancellations as you get closer to show date.  

As of now, the Rio is still honoring the $89.00 room night during the week, with regular pricing for the weekend.  The discounted $25 resort fee applies to all nights.  

But your suggestion is a good one and I will address it with IPMS/USA.

Thanks!

It is my wish to have the ability to livestream to YouTube from the convention. In order for this to happen we must have 1000 subscribers to the channel. We are currently just shy of 600 subscribers. If you you would like to see live coverage from the convention please consider subscribing so that we can bring that to you.

Thanks!
