BbWorld ’09 Amenities for Attendees

Last year, remember the BbWorld ’08 conference at the swank Palazzo in Vegas? Nice. Very nice. But for a conference I found two things missing: ubiquitous internet (Remember that? Venue and Room wireless were both pay-for services.) and … water.

Blackboard does listen.

This year these amenities are part of what Blackboard has negotiated for us:

  • USA Today delivered every weekday morning (Washington Post delivery on weekends)
  • In-room high-speed Internet access
  • Wireless Internet access in the guest rooms, dining outlets and atriums
  • Fitness center access
  • 2 bottles of water per day in guest room
  • Local phone calls (1st 20 minutes per call)
  • 800 access and toll-free calls (1st 20 minutes per call)

  1. I’m still working out the details for wireless access in the convention/meeting area. Once I have all the info I’ll post it to the listserv. I told you this year would be better 🙂
