My first trip to Las Vegas was back in 2006. I was a novice traveler at best. Luckily, I was in good company with my team of coworkers. My husband also came with us. With his schedule free, he’d take a swim in the hotel lap pool in the morning, meet me out by the fountains near the hotel’s cabanas for lunch, and have a snack and wine ready for me in our hotel room when the work day is done. We were there over our first anniversary and my sister and brother-in-law ordered us a dozen chocolate covered strawberries and champagne delivered to our hotel room. After the conference ended, we stayed over and spent a beautifully relaxing afternoon floating in pool, slushy drinks in hand.
Beyond reminiscing about a favorite memory, I share this personal story simply to let you know that the MGM Grand, where ACDIS’ 10th Annual celebration takes place in less than a month, is quite the place.
But if you haven’t booked your room yet, time is almost out. There’s only a few more days left to get a discounted hotel room rate for the ACDIS Conference. Reserve your room by April 12 to take full advantage of the discount. The conference takes place from May 9-12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
When you book your hotel room by April 12, you’ll get the discounted room rate at the MGM Grand for $169, plus a $30 daily resort fee (tax and fees not included).
Make sure to check the dates of your hotel reservation as there may not be availability on the days surrounding the conference. If you plan on extending your stay in Las Vegas for personal reasons, keep in mind that you may need to change hotel accommodations.
While you book your hotel room, make sure to check out the three special, pre-conference educational opportunities:
- Risk Adjustment Documentation and Coding Boot Camp
- Building a Best Practice CDI Team
- The Physician Advisor’s Role in CDI Boot Camp
Many long-time ACDIS attendees have come to know my hubby over the years (he was the guy passing out the extra t-shirts in Nashville and helping at the registration desk in San Antonio, among other sightings). Unfortunately, he can’t come with us this year. He’ll be back at home teaching his middle school students biology, art, and music, and taking care of our two cats Hugo and Katrina. But I do plan to have a soak in the pool and slushy in his honor.
