The Fun Stuff

Dine-A-Round Dinner
Monday, March 2

Join other conference attendees and speakers for a casual, no-host dinner and make a few new friends while enjoying the fun and delicious restaurants in or around Bally's Hotel & Casino. This is your opportunity to meet fellow attendees and start friendships that can last for the week or even longer. Attendees can break into smaller groups based on where everyone wants to dine and head off to dinner. Everyone is responsible for their own dinner and drinks.

Welcome Reception
Tuesday, March 3

All conference attendees are invited to celebrate the start of Visual Studio Live! Las Vegas at the Welcome Reception. Join us in the expo area to network with fellow conference attendees and speakers, talk with the event sponsors, enjoy complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres, and participate in the conference raffle.

Birds-of-a-Feather Lunch
Wednesday, March 4

Enjoy lively lunchtime discussions by joining one of our table topic conversations. Tables will have a designated topic to help start discussions and interact with your fellow attendees. You may even learn a new trick or two or some great tips to take back to the office.

We will also have designated speaker tables - noted with the speaker's name. Join your favorite speaker for a lunchtime discussion or just to ask questions or clarify anything from their sessions.
