Why is EDS moving from the Mirage this year?
The Mirage was purchased in 2022 by Hard Rock International, and they will be extensively redeveloping the property. Originally, plans were to begin later in the year, but the start of construction was recently moved up to the first half of 2024.
Will Resorts World be a good fit for EDS?
Absolutely! Resorts World opened in 2021, and by any measure it is an exceptional property. You’ll find a wide range of premium amenities, state-of-the-art convention facilities with almost double the meeting rooms of the Mirage, significantly more suites and a greater range of dining options.
Are there EDS-only room discounts?
Yes. Resorts World will have a block of discounted guest rooms available at $155/night (exclusive of fees and taxes), which is the same price as the Mirage. To secure this rate, please register through the official EDS reservation portal. As always, we strongly discourage the use of third-party services to book rooms.
Can I arrive on Sunday, as I could at the Mirage?
Resorts World is strongly discouraging EDS attendees from arriving on Sunday, May 19 as it will be extremely busy. Official check-in will begin Monday, May 20 at 4pm.
I've already registered at the Mirage. Will I have to re-register?
No. EDS will transfer your registration to Resorts World. We will provide further updates the week of January 15.
Will there still be a Connections Cafe?
Yes. In fact, you’ll find that the Connections Café at Resorts World will feel very familiar to last year’s Summit. It will also feature the ERA and ECIA exhibit hubs.
Will catering be more expensive than at the Mirage?
Costs will be similar. You can download a copy of the catering menu here.Top
How much time will it take to travel from elevators to meeting rooms?
We will post estimated times, plus a “familiarity” video showing elevators, meeting rooms and common spaces, in the coming weeks.
What about penalties for rebooking air travel?
Reimbursing costs related to change of travel dates can be discussed on an individual basis by contacting EDS Management.Top
Will the scheduled TTI golf outing still take place?
Yes. The golf outing date has been moved to Tuesday, May 21.
When can exhibitors load-in?
Load-in will be available beginning Monday, May 21. Please contact EDS Management if you have specific needs.
