    Hello all I am Tim from Bijou Media

    I am doing a preview of the Satellite Broadband Expo in Reno NV this October. I would like to ask you what you would like to know about the show? The preview will have a brief description on each exhibitor, a list of the training classes.

    I will be doing some reviews of the nightlife, dinning and so on. If you have any questions feel free to post, chances are that you are not the only one with the same question, and it will help me provide the preview that will help you enjoy yourself as well as get as much out of the expo that you want.

    Thanks

    How about some of the after-hours show activities. Other tourist-y things to do in an evening or a day trip. Also, I prefer my dining without the din.

    As part of the of the SBE West Preview I will do a page on the STARS BOD Canidates. The page will have a Bio of each Canidate, and will have a little bit of what their plans are for the Org.

    For those of you unfamiliar with STARS, or Satellite Technicians, And Retailers Society, this is a new organazation that is deicated to techs, and dealers unlike the SBCA, which has a main function of catering to the platform providers. Stars will offer training, and certifaction as well as many other benefits.

    Myself I consider the vote for the first BOD to be very critical, they will form the foundation of this organazation from, which in years to come it will build upon. Bijou Media is dedicated to offering voters the most information possible to make an educated choice. If you have any questions for the canidates; post here, or email me at: admin@bijoumedia.net

    Well no fulfillment dealers replied, so that page is out. Also only one STARS canidate sent me info, so that's out.

    What's in is plenty of info about:
    Dining, Special events, Casinos, Bars, nightlife, shows, attractions, and links to expo information such as Exhibitors as well as registration. A link to the famous John Hack web site along with the Photo gallery, which has pictures from Expos past including the SBE East Photo show.

    The information is centered around the Atlantis Hotel, which is the hotel chosen by the Expo.

    The planned date for publication is September 17.

    If anyone else decided to go anyway, or like me didn't have the news confirmed but had already paid so it didn't make any difference, I would like to meet. Send me a PM (box is close to full) or e-mail me @aol.com.

    Wouldn't know. The preview site is still showing this:
    All was not lost though, as I was able to get together with several wonderful members and founder (also wonderful btw ;)) of another board. We made a side trip to the Sacramento area to Satellite AV to learn how to install a Glorystar FTA system, went to the Dancing Queen stage show and had dinner. Today is a shopping/sight-seeing trip to Virginia City. We've managed to make terrific lemonade! If anyone else from DBSTalk is in Reno, I'm here until Saturday morning.

    That explains it, and my tone came from frustration with the handling of the main event. I did check out the other pages of your site both before and after I got there and found it to be useful, even though I didn't make it to the car museum.

    You weren't the only one frustrated. A couple people told me they would let me know, then didn't. That car museum looked cool. I couldn't swing the trip myself, I was going to have a book signing but the book still isn't out so I had to cancel it around a month ago.
