July 28, 2004
Sarasota, FL - “We are now close to being completely sold-out of guest rooms during WEVA EXPO 2004,” says Antrese Dickens, Convention Services Director at Bally’s Las Vegas. The upcoming 14th Annual Wedding & Event Video Expo (Aug. 16-19), hosted by Bally's, is open to all videographers worldwide. “Videographers should act immediately to be sure of getting rooms at Bally’s for this year’s EXPO. The response has been tremendous,” said Dan Argenas, WEVA International’s Director of Association Communications.
WEVA International has secured rates of just $81 per night (single or double occupancy; kids under 18 stay free) at Bally’s (directly connected to Paris Las Vegas) for WEVA EXPO 2004 attendees. All EXPO events take place inside the spectacular Bally’s complex, located “center Strip” in the heart of Las Vegas, NV. The special room rate is valid for all EXPO attendees while rooms are still available. This rate also remains valid three days before and three days after the official EXPO dates, based on availability.
To reserve guest rooms, attendees may call Bally’s toll-free at 1-800-7BALLYS or direct dial 702-739-4111. Las Vegas is conveniently and inexpensively reached from virtually anywhere. There is no Saturday stayover requirement needed with Las Vegas flights in order to get the lowest air fares. Bally’s is less than 10 minutes from the airport and the hotel maintains a satellite check-in desk inside the airport, near the baggage claim area.
