Re: [802SEC] Rome decison



It is often the case that venues that have lower rates available when they don't have a conference booked but not when they are able to block 400 or more rooms for a conference. So I wouldn't assume that we can book at the lower rates available for this March when next March rolls around.

I just looked at the prices for March 2008 (they 
won't quote beyond the end of 2008) and among the 
various offers, Expedia quoted 97/night ($200). 
In July 2008 the rate goes down to 81.

Looks like inflation will be raging in Italy during the 2008-2009 period...

I can't see anyone booking at the conference rate 
if these kinds of rates are available elsewhere.

Tony
