SlideshowPics: Carolers Photobomb Amazon re:Invent

Hello again, Las Vegas. My fourth and final trip to Sin City in 2017 was for Amazon Web Services's big customer and partner hoedown, re:Invent.

During the late November conference, I practiced two of the Seven Deadly Sins: 1. Gluttony at the hotel food court while staying up late writing articles, and 2. Envy for people who were not in Las Vegas.

But I shouldn't complain. Las Vegas has a certain insane charm as a conference location. Everything is accessible, although you have to run the gauntlet of slot machines to get where you're going. And there's plenty of weirdness to occupy the eye.

Click on the image below and enjoy a conference photo slideshow, then click on the headlines below for top stories from re:Invent.

Re: The glamour of conference travel
Good thing is plenty of work in a short amount of time. Bad thing is plenty of work in short amount of time. Was on show daily staff of Supercomm for six years. It was exhausting. I will have a few for a day or so, next BIG one for me will be Plastics Machinery Show in May.

I can't imagine how you guys make it through those things! Going as a visitor is tough enough. Best of luck at your next one.

Best thing is to have a plan of attack pre-conference. There is no way not to miss something, so determine what's the most important first.

Re: The glamour of conference travel
I've often wondered how writers felt about big conferences. I can see how it might be exhausting. I would be afraid of missing something really important.

@kq4ym: Having lived and worked in Vegas, flavored water certainly would be more useful.

Ah yes, what more coud one want than flavored oxygen in the desert environment of Las Vegas. But looks like an informative and entertaining venue for most all though.

@maryam: Jeal. Vegas and Orlando seem to be the big conference capitals in the US outside of California. But at least here in Boston we see our fair share.

Re: Claustrophobic?
Maryam, I read once about tiny living spaces because of space limitation. I don’t remember if it was in Tokyo or elsewhere, though. It was long ago so I don’t remember details. But these hotel beds that you talk about, you say they are like a coffin because of their size or because they really look like a coffin?
