Martin,

I'm at the Hilton Garden Inn which is about a block away from the convention center, getting in on Tuesday.  Looking forward to catching up with the LSP folks in Phoenix.  

 

Jennings is right - sun block, hats and hydration is critical.  Its almost criminal to do this show in Phoenix in July/Aug.

If it works like our 2017 NATs in Omaha, the tables are generally for vendors, but anyone can reserve one with some requirements. It may have been just down to having the money to reserve the table. I know Herr Clunk did reserve a table in Omaha last year that we all used as kind of an informal meeting and occasional congregating place of sorts.

 

I shouldn't think it would be against their rules for a private person to reserve a table if they had the cash.

I know of some that are not on the list yet. I saw on Kinetics FB page or website that they would be there and release a new kit, and announce another. My guess is it will be the big 1/72 C-17!

AND GENTLEMEN PLEASE NOTE THE NEWISH UPDATE BELOW...
Safe travels etc....

February 9, 2018 - VERY IMPORTANT - FRAUD WARNING!!  It has come to our attention that vendors may be contacted by a company called Convention Housing Planners, or other similar companies.  They may tell you they are the official hotel booking company for our convention.  This is not true.  We do not have an official hotel booking company. The only way to get the hotel rooms at our convention rate, with a guarantee that your room reservation actually exists, is to use the link on our website for Reservations.  Reservations made through any method other than the link will be at your own risk.
