HSS Meetup 2013 - Sept 21st - Indy

203 posts in this topic

I have been looking for recommendations for a place to stay for the meetup. I will look into the Conrad downtown Indy. Is anyone else that is going to the meetup planning on staying here?

 

Any other suggestions for a place to stay?

The Conrad is a 5 star hotel (I believe) and is going to be a little steep on price.  If price doesn't matter to you then I am sure it is very nice.  There are also some nice places to eat downtown.  I have eaten at http://www.stelmos.com/ a few times when I used to attend Formula 1 races at IMS.

 

As JMWills mentioned we will likely not be downtown but the location is still not decided.

 

This is the place we used last year: Hotel Indigo, 9791 North by Northeast Blvd, Fishers, IN 46037.

 

There are other places in the same general area and it's a nice area of town.

I just sent Dave a email for suggestions. I am looking forward to the event and meeting people from the podcast and forum. So far who is going to the event (other than me)?

the AAA rate was 199 when I booked last week. Also for those who use hilton honors point the Conrad is part of that family of hotels.

$199 is too rich for my blood. I'm Pooooor. =)

But I will be there.

I stayed at the Hotel Indigo last year. It was very nice.

I, too, was thinking $199 was a tad on the high side. BTW, are all the rooms at the Indigo purple? :D

      I mentioned it on the show last week but now it is official. I will be in the Kansas City Microsoft Store, Saturday afternoon, December 1st. I have two presentations to do on Windows 8 and SkyDrive. One at Noon and the other at 3pm. Also going to podcast live from the store at 5pm and working on some interviews with the store manager. If you are in the area and can join me, let me know here. We will do a mini meetup early or late depending on who can show up. Maybe I can even get Microsoft to come up with a few giveaways?

      I would like to gauge interest in a 2012 meetup. I envision it to be on a Saturday in mid October and located somewhere in the Indianapolis Indiana area. Please let me know in a reply if you:
       
      RSVP no matter what the date.
      Tentative
      Can't make it this year.
       
      This will help me decide on a location and what vendor support I'll need. Hit me with questions if you have them. Thanks!
       
      UPDATED: The 2nd Annual Meetup will be held on October, 20th, in a location TBD. 95% sure it will be the North Indianapolis area. Page 2 of this post is where RSVPs start. Pleast RSVP if you know you will attend. Thank you!
