Las Vegas. Love it or hate it, you can’t ignore it.
Well, you can, of course. But where’s the fun in that?
I have mixed feelings about Vegas. It’s a long way from home, it’s strangely tasteless, and it’s expensive in ways you might not expect. On the other hand, the city is definitely a spectacle. If you like shows, shopping, or gambling, then Vegas might be your home from home.
I don’t go to Vegas except to attend trade shows of one kind or another. I’ve been to CES a couple of times, Atlassian’s conference in 2019, and now I’m thinking of returning for the 20Books conference in November.
I love 20Books. I’ve been to events in Vegas, London, and Edinburgh and enjoyed them all even though my normal social routine is “none whatsoever, thanks”.
So if we’re allowed to travel by November, and if my finances allow, then maybe – just maybe – I’ll venture out from my den in South London and make one more pilgrimage to Sin City, Nevada. Fingers crossed.
