Ok, it's over 6 months away but I don't care. I booked my flight and hotel already so I want to know who else is going.

I was psyched to be able to use onepass miles to cover the $370 ticket from Newark. The buddy I'm going with has the room covered with Starwood points. This is shaping up to be a great trip already.

I've paid for the conference and booked the hotel.
Air is taken care of.

I believe there is already an ongoing discussion...Not sure why it's in secret...

I guess I don't understand why vendors aren't considered premium supporters. I'm going back to being a non-vendor, this sucks.

Not to be a skeptic or anything, but I find it a little hard to swallow that they'd come back to California after just having one in CA in 2009. Not to say it isn't possible and that I wouldn't love it (SWMBO was born in San Diego and wants to go back)...but...I recall at this time last year folks were saying it was going to be in DC in 2010. That clearly didn't pan out. I'll wait to hear from the AHA to make my travel plans.

While I love California, it was really due to come back to the East coast for 2011. Why not Philly or Boston?

You'd be right to be skeptical, but I think it might be different this time then the DC rumor. At that time there wasn't a very good selection process. The AHA has made an effort to get ahead of the game. This is one of the very few conferences in the world, that has actually grown during the economic downturn. It makes sense that they would want to enter into hotel agreements while they have substantial leverage.

The east coast / west coast rotation was a nice thing, however, Gary Glass mentioned last year that the strength of the package would be the determining factor and not the alternate E/W locations.

I got the news 2nd hand but the source was an email from someone on the SD committee. Still. Might be false.
