Who's Interested?

Who will come?

If a Synthzone convention were to take place in the USA, say in Las Vegas, or in Orlando, FLA (both TOP US convention & fun vacation destinations) who here would be interested in attending? My personal pick is Las Vegas (because it's closer to where I live), but I would also be willing to travel to Orlando.

Convention highlights might include: arranger keyboard manufacter sponsored exhibits and events, as well as show performances put on by their artists, and shows put on by Synthzone members as well. Other events might include arranger keyboard playing workshops, vocal technique, arranger composing, jam sessions, and just having fun socializing and hanging out together.

We've been floating this IDEA around for some time now, so I think it's time to find out if there's enough interest to take it to the 'next' level of actually 'making it happen'. Input from all appreciated.

Scott I might be willing to go for a Vegas trip. If it were to be in March, that would be very cool as I will be there anyway.

Hi Terry, I think that March might be a bit premature, as I'm sure it's going to take a bit of pre-plannng and scheduling (hotel convention space booking, manufacterer participation commitments, etc) to insure a successful event. I was thinking more like in Aug, Sep, or October 2004. - Scott

Scott...
Finding a time to meet individual schedules could be a real challenge here...but I would love to do it.

Being in a winter tourist area, all my weekends and a lot of mid-week is booked pretty solid Nov thru most of May and it would be difficult to get away.

I love Vegas...but for practical reasons, I would have to cast my vote for the Mouse.

I know for sure Bebop will be interested.

Vegas is alright- It doesn't have to be 'big'. I think if 30-40 people want to come that's a good crowd IMO.

I suppose we could hold 2 separate Synthzone convention events, one in Orlando (East Coast) and the other in Vegas (West Coast). The great thing about holding it in Orlando & Las Vegas is that there'd be plenty other things to do (for the entire family) as well. I might even find a way to make it to BOTH East & West coast events. - Scott

I had proposed something like this some time ago and there was virtually no interest.

If there seems to be some interest this time around I'd be glad to assist.

The idea of a West and East sounds like a decent plan to me. I don't see why the reps from the companies wouldn't be inclined to show up, they put on dinky clinics at music stores, so I should think they would be a go.

Scott if it looks like it might firm up into something, let me know if you need my help on something.
