good luck getting there ^^ aside from the distance my other problem is none of my friends are big audiophiles and I wouldn't want to go to something like this alone if only for the cost of a hotel room. Usually when my friends and I go to cons we cram as many people as we can into a hotel room to cut costs.

I think I might be able to make it. Perhaps we can all take up a collection to help Gatto make the journey! I would be willing to throw in some assistance? Scottsmrnyc

For the members that want to show off their gear at RMAF there will be a separate sign up thread coming soon. The vendors are extremely interested in the show so we'll see a great mix of people in the room.

In a few weeks I'll also be looking for a few locals to assist with staffing the room, while it is only one room it is a HUGE room at over 12,000 square feet. Get ready to be famous Colorado Headfiers the audio world is about to descend on you !

I'm already planning on helping out in the Bottlehead/TapeProject room and I like to go to RMAF every other year anyway. It's the best US show IMHO and the venue couldn't be any better (it sure would be nice if they could move the airport a little closer to the freakin town though!).

The main floor features a nice western themed pub with tons of micro's on tap and pretty decent food (hotel $$$ though). There's a few other big hotels (the Tech Center Hyatt) within walking distance that have good food too (I wasn't that crazy about the Italian place in the Marriott).
It's usually late enough in the year that there's even a little snow.
But the beds,.. ooh,.. the mattresses in the Tech Marriott are the BEST!

RMAF is also great for after hours parties. I won't go into details on that one so the shrimp and crab will last and the Absolute won't run dry!

See you there boys and girls.

I work about 5 minutes from the venues - some new eating and drinking options have opened up not far away. Perhaps the org thread will be agood pace to post 'em...

If you can fly into the regional airport at Centennial, it's SUPER close!

Killer info thanks!
This would be The place to list good eats in the area. I don't mind eating a good $17 burger every once in a while but for every meal during a weekend, it can add up to more than the hotel room fast!

I don't get it. I went to the RMAF site and looked for head-fi-type manufacturers. I couldn't find any. Granted it was a quick search. Maybe others will have more luck.

But all-in-all I don't see a rush for the doors by the manufacturing community.

What gives?

Most of the events are at the Mariott including the Head-Fi. I stayed there a fews ago for the 2nd RMAF and the Mariott was okay then. Don't know anything about the Hilton. Probably best to check one of the travel sites to see how they are rated.
