Wow! Where to start … how about at the beginning? The beginning of CEREC 27 and a half officially starts in 16 days. If you ask anyone on our CEREC Marketing Team right now about where you should be at 9 a.m. PST on August 16, 2012, we would all say something like, “Be in your seat at CEREC 27 and a half … and hold on … ’cause it’s going to be a thrilling ride!”
If you’ve already registered, booked your hotel and bought your ticket … perfect! In fact, our room block at The Venetian just sold out last week. As an alternative to the now more than $500/night going room rate, we’ve secured a block of rooms directly across the street at Treasure Island. For more information on room rates and to book a reservation, click here.
A few tips
- With more than 4,000 people expected to attend, avoid the crowd and go through on-site registration to pick up your credentials and show bag on Wednesday.
- I just mentioned this, but really, be in your seat when the show starts! Refer to the first bullet point to see how you can easily make this happen. Then enjoy a leisurely breakfast and chat up old friends before making your way into the General Session.
- While temps outside the building will soar over 100 degrees, the temps inside the building can feel more like a meat locker. Do wear layers, or else you’ll be buying a CEREC lab coat from the “souVeneer” shop … actually, that’s not a bad idea!
- Peruse the CEREC 27 and a half website and blog…with so many great stories from doctors, it will really get you in the mood to celebrate!
