So much for keeping the Ignite hotel list up-to-date this year. My last update was almost two months ago. It’s amazing how putting something off can snowball into never doing that thing. Between some mentions of the hotel numbers dwindling and warnings from @MS_Ignite to register soon before they sell out, I figure I’d better quit stalling and post something.
I just logged onto the Ignite site and ran my usual search (Sunday – Friday), and I see… nothing. Technically not nothing, but the only hotel I see is the one I’m already booked at, the Rosen Plaza. The search function seems to always offer you the same hotel you already have booked. A quick glance at the pricing page shows that all of the hotels are now listed as sold out there as well.
So it looks like this will be the final update for the (unofficial) Microsoft Ignite Hotels page this year. With the hotels appearing to be sold out, it makes me wonder how much longer it will be before the conference itself is announced as being sold out. I don’t expect it will be too much longer.
That means if you haven’t registered it, I’d get on it now. We’re only 53 days out, so get those approvals, get registered, and look for a hotel somewhere outside the block. Good luck, and I will see you in Orlando!
