    Most Strip hotel are either sold out or the rates are super high for these nights. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are usually the cheap nights.
    The ACM Awards take place on Sunday the 6th but would that event effect prices through the next week?
    What am I missing?

    NAB Convention, April 5-10. Depending upon the economy, anywhere from 80,000 to 120,000 attendees. Since I retired from the biz, I always plan my April trip around that.

    Conventions during those dates. MJ golf (affects mostly Mlife props) and big NCAA weekend during the weekend leading up to those dates.

    For once I lucked out. I'll be there April 7-12. A few months ago I booked the rooms, then almost immediately the prices skyrocketed. :thumbsup:

    The ACM's events extend through like Tuesday I think with other events and concerts... probably still residuals from that as well.

    As was posted, NAB is the big convention. I'm going for that reason and then a few days extra for fun. I got the downtown grand for $357 including a Saturday night stay. The extra part of the trip is at Bellagio.

    It's amazing what an event or convention will do to room rates. I was checking MB for 5/30-6/1 and the rates for the base room are twice the price of Aria! Does anyone know what's going on that weekend at MB?

    I will be there for the ICCFA conventio 5th - 11th at Mandalay Bay. We have to stay at Luxor this year because rates at MB were so high. I alos had several friends that were going to come out that week but the rates are so high they all screapped the idea.
