Hi all

I was thinking of coming along to fan faire next year along with some friends from EQ2 and was wondering if anybody could give a rough ballpark figure of how much it cost for the whole weekend?

A breakdown of approximate about travel costs, hotels, food, admission, etc. so that we all know what to budget for.

I know this will vary depending on location and other variables but all I am interested in is a rough figure.

Thanks very much

Flight and room was about $540 out of Grand Rapids, MI from Wednesday to Sunday.  Food and drink was probably about $300 (could have been more, I kept getting those damned 48oz Margaritas) cab fare/transfer from airport was around 30 bucks, Fan Faire cost was $89.  Depending how long you stay and gamble and/or drink I think I spent about $1000.  If you dont drink or gamble it will be far cheaper.

I think I spent about $350 on accomodation and about $100-$200 on food.  I don't drink so I didn't have to worry about that   I actually found that room service was pretty much the same cost (and sometimes cheaper) then going out to restaurant or w/e.  I won't bother giving you my air faire cost since I travelled from NZ .  I opted to use a shuttle from the airport which is around $6 each way.  Not as direct as a Taxi as depending on their schedule they might stop at a number of Hotels before yours but being new to Vegas I enjoyed the driving tour SMILEY

The killer is your airfaire.  It's about $1000 for me to fly to Vegas.

SOE usually arranges special room pricing (book early) and plan $200-300 for food and whatnot.  There's always whatnot SMILEY

I tried, but I can't get all of me into a flat rate box.

Apparantly, airfares to the USA from NZ (and vice versa) are about to be reduced by up to 40% SMILEY  Maybe I'll be back for fan faire sooner than I thought...
