Hi everyone,

I have spoken to Sharon, and we are going to try and put something together for the Montreal Salsa Convention/Congress.

Since we have such a large number, we can easily organize something and if we have enough people, a huge discount can be arranged.

This will be the most affordable trip you'll ever take. Its from April 19-22 and the packages vary. The hotels are booked up for 2 double beds, but the King beds are still available for $169.00 at the convention location (The Sheraton). However, there are like over 10 Hotels walking distance for under $200/night.

Here is the website:
http://www.montrealsalsaconvention.com/

Please post your first name and if your a yes/maybe/no.

Lets make this happen.

If we can get more than 15, we could get a pretty good discount.

Please respond by in the next few days.

Also, the hotels are booking up fast, I think they only have a few King Size Hotels left, the doubles are booked up.

Count me in! Also have 2 friends who are 50/50... 1 can only join us for 2 out of the 4 days, and 1 can't decide until she knows the exact budget.

Do you have an approx figure for the whole trip, Rob?

The complete congress pass is $189.00, trying to get that down.

The Hotel is $169.00/night + taxes at the Sheraton (you split that how many you want).

The transportation, well, you can drive, rent, bus or train.

If you share everything with 3 others (4 all together), the 4 nights, can be done for under $350.00 (plus food). In the end, Montreal is a pretty exciting town.

The travel and hotel arrangements must be done on your own, so the costs might be cheaper.

I'm trying to garner up commitments so we can get discounts on the variety of passes.

That sounds awesome, Rob!
You could definitely get cheaper rates for hotes in downtown Montreal. I've booked hotels there on priceline for much cheaper. I stayed at the Sheraton for 65 USD/night.
I'm definitely interested in going.

Any word on discount rate? Please let us know otherwise it would be a good idea to order it online as today is the last day the passes go for $189.

Thanks.

Hey guys,

Due to a lack of interest, I don't think we'll be able to get the 35% discount.

I guess for those still interested in going, we'll continue to chat on this forum to connect weeks prior to the congress.

Thanks for those who responded and we'll stay in touch.
