After being flooded out of its originally scheduled Nashville location for its annual conference, ILTA has managed to relocate the event to the Aria Resort Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The dates remain the same: 22-to-26 August.

There are more details about the ILTA programme here http://conference.iltanet.org – and here's a link to the venue – www.arialasvegas.com It's a modest little place – with a mere 4000 rooms and 16 restaurants, plus numerous swimming pools (including Liquid – an 'adults only' pool) located on 'The Strip' (Las Vegas Boulevard) between the Monte Carlo and the Bellagio. It's a brand new hotel (only opened this month) and its headline show is Viva Elvis by Cirque du Soleil. (Think Blackpool but without the Irish Sea, the rain or the Krankies.)
