2016 is open for proposals.
Ideal pricing would be $90 to $120 per night for a standard room (more for suites), depending on venue and location. Off-season resorts have a lot to offer, and booking an event with them is mutually beneficial, but don't let that recommendation deter you from searching far and wide. Conference facilities and lots of parking are must-haves, and we typically host three meal events at the hotel, so in-house catering is a plus.Great, is there any data on how many members show up on average, the hotel price ranges that are acceptable to the members and other data like that that would help narrow down the available resorts? Anyone that has done a fest, any info would be appreciated. Az is set up for this type of thing and labor day is before the prices triple in the winter (in the desert). It is also well before the snow that causes the prices to triple in the ski season, so it is only the holiday that will cause prices to not be the lowest, thanks for the info...Mark
Jon, it is a long, long way from Flagstaff/Sedona to Tombstone. Both in miles and other things.Flagstaff, Sedona, Jerome, Oracle, Tombstone, anywhere.
I love Colorado, the entire state, with the possible exception of the entire Eastern half. Denver is beautiful in September...MarkI mean Colorado is a fantastic state, never gets too hot on the front range in the summer. It's relatively open, I don't know many resorts or anything, just because I don't stay at them, even the northern front range is absolutely gorgeous. Denver is a relatively small city compared to others. Just throwing my hat into the ring. If anyone wants I could do some more research when it comes to resorts and things.
Take a look at what I said again:If accommodations "might be an issue." How can it even be considered as a venue for a TDIFest??
Take a look at what I said again:
"Not sure about accommodations. Might be an issue."
I just do not know if the Flagstaff area has the right accomodations for a TDIFest. I lack the specific knowledge.
Others will know more than I do and/or the issue could be researched.
There is a large Fairfield resort on I40 in Flagstaff...Mark
