    Where: Caesars Palace Las Vegas
    When: January 8-10, 2012
    Pricing: Silver Pass ($249), Gold Pass ($549), Platinum Pass ($1,249), and Diamond Pass ($2,249

    I did the East one in NYC in August and left with some solid contacts, some new clients, some new knowledge, a bit of alcohol (met some guys there that win my veins and a generally positive experience from the time there.

    It may be a bit pricey for some but in my opinion well worth it.

    I'll be there representing 2 firms I own and am looking forward to learning and sharing there.

    I'll be there but only because I heard Ryan Eagle and Vito Glazers are finally tieing the knot. It should be a blessed day.

    I've have not been to any of these summits before. Is it worth going to besides meeting fellow bhw members? What goes on in there that warrants paying the 200+ entry fee?

    That's what I'm wondering. I've heard it's more about the networking than it is about the summit itself.

    Does anyone know if they offer some sort of guest pass? If I go I'd wanna bring my girlfriend but I'm not gonna pay the full price for her because she isn't gonna care about the summit itself. She would just be going for the trip. I wouldn't wanna just leave her sitting in the hotel room though while I'm at the summit.

    I'll be there. Is there going to be a BHW party?

    Every time I go to ASE and ASW, I leave with a ton of new clients and a ton of great new contacts I can use to promote those clients. Definitely worth every cent if you have any social skills at all. And come on...IT'S VEGAS! :)

    I've gone to one last winter and the one in summer of last year, it was all paid for. It was a ton of fun, went to some crazy parties.

    It's definitely all about networking, and actually I must say alot of the networking goes on at the afterparties, I made a ton of great contacts while doing tequila shots in Tryst and XS, plus people tend to spew valuable info when they're drunk :)

    Thanks for bringing this up.

    I have been thinking a lot about the summit. There's a question in my mind that I want to share:

    What would you prefer to attend from a business perspective (as in finding SEO clients): SMX or Summit?

    I will be in Vegas until the 7th. Now I am wondering if I should stay a day for this. Anyone know any discount codes?
