Let’s talk a bit about one of everyone’s favorite – if that’s the word – topics at EDS: Elevators. Or more specifically, waiting for elevators.
Don’t get us wrong, the Mirage is an absolutely wonderful place to hold the Summit. But with over 4,000 attendees heading up and down all day for meals, meetings, industry events and what have you, sometimes the elevators can get a little… tight.
“The elevators can be a challenge,” agrees Woody Wilder, vice president of sales, Murata Americas. “My best advice is not be in the main area” when staying at the Mirage.
“Maybe lose a few pounds before you go,” jokes Scott Kennedy, vice president of Logix sales and marketing.
Jeff May, president of Logix sales and marketing, advises planning your schedule with elevators in mind. “Leave a little earlier,” he suggests. And if you can’t? “Be prepared to wiggle your way through.”
If you’re staying or holding meetings in the Mirage Tower Suites, you’re in luck. You’ll have access to private elevators that run express between the lobby and the 24th and 25th floors.
Of course, you can also empty the piggy bank and settle down on silk sheets at the exclusive Villas at The Mirage. You won’t need an elevator because your villa is set in a secluded outdoor garden. And, as a bonus, it also comes with its own butler.
And don’t forget to set aside time to meet your colleagues at the exciting EDS All-Industry Event on Tuesday, May 7th, from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
