I know this is an outside chance but I spoke with Embassy Suites today (I booked just after the deadline) to see about getting the conference rate. They said the conference rate is full and rooms would need to be added. I am sure there is probably 0 chance of getting new rooms added to the block rate but thought it was worth at least asking.

Thanks, Sean

If they have no conference rooms left, then that is something that cannot be changed.

However, if you want to be an exhibitor, you can still book a room as long as the hotel isn't full. You just won't get the special $129.00 rate 'cause the May 2nd deadline has passed.

That's not a big deal, really, but what IS a big deal is that they add you to the LSAF exhibitor block. You must be added to the exhibitor group list. Why that is important is exhibitors are grouped together on the same floor(s).

So call 'em back and explain all that to them. Tell 'em you'll pay whatever rate they charge for a standard room but you want to be added to the group so you can be placed on the floor(s) with the rest of the LSAF exhibitors.

If you have any problems, write to me via email at info@lonestaraudiofest.com and I'll speak with them on your behalf.

He was too late to get the LSAF rate. Cutoff was May 2nd. We were hoping they might do him a solid and give him our rates, but I don't think they did. Not sure what his rate actually was.

Since I have 2 nights at the show rate I call and see if they will let me have a 3rd night at the show rate.

Can't hurt to ask!

As an aside, we received three cartons of AudioXpress magazines today, so be sure and pick up a copy. They always run a half-page ad for us a few months before the show every year, and they send free magazines for everyone that attends.

And Norman Tracy wrote yesterday to say YouTuber Jason "The Audiophile Junkie" will be at LSAF 2023 providing coverage. So we'll have both E-Zine and YouTube coverage this year.

Related to this, I booked outside of the window and received rates of $176 for one night and $177 for the other.
