Hey Guys....and girls.
Here's the scoop. In order to move CGE from someplace like The Plaza to a newer hotel actually on the strip like The Riviera, we have to guarantee a certain number of room nights at the hotel. We guaranteed 514 room nights which means that if people using the CGE discount code don't fill those rooms, CGE is forced to pay for them. Currently we are at 464 room nights - exactly 50 short of our requirement. Our bill for the shortage is around $6000 at this point and, frankly, we can't afford it! CGE is not about making money...none of us organizers has ever been paid for our time and effort putting the show together. We do, however, need it to be able to pay it's own bills or it simply cannot exist.
So if you haven't booked your room, please do so and be sure to use the CGE discount code. If you booked at another hotel for some reason, please re-consider and if at all possible, cancel your reservation and re-book at The Riviera. If you forgot to use the CGE code, please call the hotel and re-book your room with the code. Maybe even some of you might have time to hang-out in Vegas for an extra night?
We're so close here folks! Fifty room nights is all we need. Anything that you can do to help will be greatly appreciated.
