I'll be attending as well. I was a bit hesitant when I saw that sleeping rooms at the Gaylord were $235 per night. Rates for the DMTC were about half that. I know there were issues with the Tech Center, like the sometimes-broken passenger elevators. However, it's the only audio show I attend, not counting the very small NYC show. I'm hoping for a great show and an improved experience from the previous venue.
There's lots of other hotels at the Airport that you can stay at that are much cheaper.
Fortunately, when I booked back in December for two nights, the rate was $220/night. But, with all the fees and taxes, I'm still looking at $563!
RMAF's move to the new hotel has come with significant price increases for exhibitors. Enough to price smaller companies and dealers out of RMAF. My passion is for high value systems, which I define as each component costs a few hundred to a couple of thousand dollars. I have noticed in the AXPONA 2019 coverage the tilt is to the five and six figure price range and fear RMAF with higher exhibit costs is headed in the same direction. Pragmatically the transition of the high-end from local dealers to regional, national, and international HiFi shows as a primary opportunity to present to clients does pressure component prices to cover exhibition costs.Removing my manufacturer's hat speaking as a passionate audiophile of course attending RMAF would be fun, fun, fun.
