Staying at the hotel of the tournament is a great way to have ease of access and have a place to break during the action from a huge weekend event.
It is also how Evo actually holds events and doesn’t lose money. We have a quota to fill, and if that quota isn’t met, then we take a huge hit and puts the event in jeopardy for next year.
While some deals on the internet might be legit, alot of them are selling the garden rooms to people who book through various sites. These rooms are run down and are in heavy need of renovation. We have the island rooms which are a huge step up from a regular room and located right next to the ballroom.
We only moved it to the strip so that eveyone wouldn’t have to take buses and taxis to get to the strip, but if people aren’t going to stay at the hotel, then we will never be on the strip again.
We hope everyone stays at the hotel that we booked to keep costs down.
