    Despite my best intentions when picking a wedding date it turns out the NAB convention is going on at the same time. I'm feeling really nervous about it, but it's kind of too late to change anything now. Has anyone been in Vegas during this convention and can tell me how bad it is or have any tips? Is anyone else getting married at the same time? My fiancé keeps reminding me that there's always something happening in Vegas and it's built for conventions, but I'm still worried.

    We've been to the convention 5 times in Vegas although not since I retired 8 years ago. A good year economically and they'll draw 100,000+. Almost all of them fill up the Strip hotels. They run buses from the Strip hotel to the convention center and the casinos and restaurants do get very crowded at night. But, if you already have room reservations, I wouldn't sweat it. Your fiance is correct. Vegas knows how to handle big conventions.

    Congrats on the wedding!

    I got married during NAB 4 years ago (also totally missed it when researching for the perfect non-busy Vegas date) The only "issue" I encountered was that hotel rates were more expensive, but there didn't seem to be any more congestion than usual around town.
