Conference Venue & Hotel

DMIN will be held at the Tropicana Hotel, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). It is located directly on the Las Vegas Boulevard ("The Strip"). The negotiated special room rates for conference attendees are very competitive.

Hotel description

The Tropicana Hotel is one of Las Vegas’ newly renovated luxurious hotels overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. This is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities. The hotel is minutes from the Las Vegas airport with shuttles/buses to and from the airport. This hotel has many vacation and recreational attractions, including: Las Vegas Health Spa, swimming pools, casino, sunning decks, easy access (walking distance) to nightly shows (MGM), snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping areas, bars, and more. Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a day and most are suitable for families and children. The hotel is within walking distance from most other Las Vegas attractions. For the benefit of our international colleagues, the state of Nevada neighbors with the states of California, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Arizona. Las Vegas is only a few driving hours away from other major cities, including: Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, and Grand Canyon.

Hotel Rates

The room rate is $79.00 + 12% County Tax (the tax rate is correct as of January 2013 – the room rate already includes the $19.99 Resort Fee which is a mandatory fee set by all major hotels in Las Vegas) per night for Single or Double occupancy (no extra charge for double occupancy); this rate is available only from July 21 (Sunday arrivals) to July 25 (Thursday), 2013 (i.e., checking out on July 26, 2013). For more than two persons staying in the same room, there is an Additional Person Charge of $25 per person, per night (maximum of four persons to a room). The main organizer of the conferences has reserved a large block of rooms (over 3,300 room nights) for the duration of the conferences. These rooms are available only to our conference participants (on First-Come First-Serve basis.)

Therefore, attendees are strongly advised to reserve their rooms as early as possible if they plan to stay in the hotel where the conferences will be held. At the time when the room reservation is made, the credit card (given above) will be billed for the first night's room rate and tax (a procedure followed by all major hotels in USA).
