2015 - Christmas Expo Preliminary Class Schedule
« on: March 18, 2015, 02:52:46 PM »
The Planning and Education Committee is working hard to fill out a world class, relative curriculum for it's attendees.

Below is a link to the early list of classes. This is by far not complete! More is being discussed and added as we find world class instructors. We wanted to publish this now since the early registration fee is valid through the end of this month.  Detailed descriptions and schedule will be posted at a later date.

Activities not mentioned, but still in process of finalizing:

The hugely successful Round Table Session
TBD - Key Note Speaker (we are thinking outside the box for this year)
The hosted Vendor Night Session
The Mega Vendor Hall with well known and some new names.
And more..

Check out the list and make your plans to meet us in Ft. Worth

The class list looks great.

If you end up getting Chevy Chase to be the key note speaker I'm in for sure!!

If your going to this event, everyone wants to know "where's the place to hang out after the day has ended"? This is always one of the best parts about getting together. Networking in a nice relaxing environment.
There is a block of rooms reserved at the Hawthorne Suites just for this. The Hawthorne Suites have rooms starting at $99 a night, including breakfast. They have said hanging out in the lobby or by the pool is fine to talk about Christmas as long as you want.  It is close (walking) to restaurants, and about 1.5 miles from the Will Rogers Memorial Center. Here is the info:

Hawthorne Suites
1701 S University Dr
Fort Worth, TX 76107
Phone: (817) 870-1011

Book your rooms using the "CHRISTMAS IN JULY" booking code to get the negotiated rates. Make sure you talk to the hotel agent when using that code.

A short block away is Extended Stay.  It is slightly less a night, and very walkable if you wanted to hang out with the Hawthorne gang.

Extended Stay America - Ft. Worth Medical Center
1601 River Run
Ft Worth TX 76107
Phone: (817) 338-4808

There are other options in the immediate area to suit individual tastes.

There are also a few other hotels in the area close by as well if you have points with another hotel chain and want to pay with points like I did.

Parking at the Will Rogers Center looks like it may be around $8-10 per day, so some may want to carpool to save a few bucks.  It looks like I will have a few extra seats in my rental.

If you are going to Expo, speak up and we can get a list of people and a Private Message chain going to discuss logistics if anyone wants.  Even though I am not at the Hawthorn, I may spend some time over there since I'll only be a mile away.
