AWS re:Invent is the biggest cloud computing event of the year, and it's coming up fast! To make the most of your experience, here are a few tips to help you plan and prepare.

With these tips in hand, you'll be able to navigate the crowds, book the sessions you want, and make the most of your time in Vegas.

So get ready to learn, network, and have fun!

🎲 Unique Email Registration: Keep your primary inbox clean by using a unique email address to sign up for the event. Gmail users, simply add "+reinvent" to your existing username to filter messages effortlessly.

📅 Book Sessions in a Snap: Utilize the AWS re:Invent app to secure your spots. Remember, popular sessions are like hot Vegas shows — they sell out quickly! Prioritize and plan. We have provided a list of sessions that we look forward to attend here.

🏨 Hotel Hacks: Align your accommodation with your session schedule. AWS re:Invent takes over multiple venues, so picking a strategic hotel spot can save you precious time — and footsteps!

👟 Comfort Meets the Road: Speaking of steps, Vegas is sprawling, and comfort is king. Opt for your most supportive shoes over those flashy but oh-so-painful heels.

📺 Overflow Know-How: Can't get into a session? No sweat. Overflow rooms are the unsung heroes where you can stream sessions live, complete with screens and headphones.

🤝 Network Like a Pro: The true jackpot at AWS re:Invent? Connections. It's a hotbed of inspiration and solutions — bring your business cards and your best elevator pitch.

🚗 Uber Wise: When the Strip's abuzz, an Uber escape plan is crucial. Here's where to catch your ride at key locations:

  • Mandalay Bay: Find your ride by the convention center entrance, on the beach level.
  • Luxor: Head to their north entrance.
  • MGM Grand: Locate the Uber sign on the first floor of the self-parking garage.
  • Cosmopolitan: The main entrance is your best bet, towards the backside of the casino.
  • Caesars Palace: The Omnia/Colosseum valet area awaits in the parking ramp.
  • Venetian: Seek out the 2nd level of the parking garage, signposted from the hotel elevators.

🍴 Hidden Culinary Gems: Recharge with these lesser-known foodie havens:

  • Esther’s Kitchen: Experience a modern twist on Italian in the Arts District.
  • Gritz Café: Indulge in Southern comfort with a side of soul.
  • Blueberry Hill: A homestyle diner that hits the breakfast jackpot.
  • Herbs & Rye: Not just steaks and cocktails, but a happy hour legend.
  • Kitchen Table: Breakfast and lunch classics reimagined.

🎰 AWS re:Invent 2023 is set to be as eventful as Vegas itself. See you there!
