    How many of you will be in town for this? Or going to it? How crazy will Vegas be around that time? I am assuming that all the hotels will be bumping up their room rates for that date. Or will it be no crazier than NYE ect...

    There will be extra security and more media wherever the debate is being held, but I doubt it will impact room rates whatsoever. People watch the debates on TV. The only crowd it draws to the site is mostly political and media pros, which is not a large group compared to the average vegas convention

    I went to the Wynn a days before one of the debates (Dem?) Only notice was CNN had a set on the Corner and signs. More security near debate site for sure but honestly CES probably would draw tons more people.

    No worries.

    Are you sure about it being a democratic party debate? That will just be a few weeks before the general election. I bet it is the presidential debates. It says it is on 10/19. Hilary or Bernie vs Donald or Ted or Mario or Chris or et al. vs independent candidate if any.

    I don't think that folks will fly in. It's not like there will be a lot of opportunities to actually attend. Unless it's a town hall, you probably need to know someone to get in.
