If you are looking to save money on your hotel costs, you may wish to room-share. Post your room share message here.

If you don't have a "buddy" to share the cost of the 2-for-1 buddy pass, you may also try and hook-up with a fellow forum user to save on registration costs.

Betsy,
I am confused...are you saying that you will pay our room at IUSA this year?

lol. um, nope. *not it!!*

I just started this new thread so people wouldn't get confused and try to room with people who were looking for roommates LAST year :o

Already have a room mate...some lady who has put up with me for some 40 years as of next week.

But...this is a good idea to save money on rooms. A little pricey this year but we'll still be there.

***Looking for roommate***
**Have room at Main hotel from Sun to Wed***

Single female, non-smoker, preferably 18-29, fun and can keep up with late night shenanigans and is OK about missing the first or couple of classes in the morning. Open minded (didn't want to use the word liberal) and loves "fine art" photography.

inquire at roommies@marcbenjamin.com



**update** position is filled. However, ok to put your name on the waiting list. Experience dictates that people drop off from room sharing up to the actual start of the convention.

This is my FIRST Imaging Expo, not really a "pro" - more like a talented hobbyist - lol. So money is tight and I will only go if I can get costs cut down. I would need a buddy pass and a room shared for 2010.

I kinda wanna stay a couple days longer or less to explore Nashville. I am from CA and dont get to travel much. Im 32, funny, fun and kickback. I dont smoke or do drugs. Im a rare social drinker. Im STRAIGHT, SO Im lookin for a straight, great personality, non smoking, fun female around my age for a roomie who doesnt snore or is a mess. Someone who wants to go out and explore the city too. Someone that we can share ideas with.

Anyone up for that? Please email me at cstark@stark-creative.com
Thanks :D

Do you still need a room? I am with a group of 3 women who will be driving up from Atlanta, arriving Sat. evening and checking out Tuesday at noon. We have a room w/2 double beds and are looking for a 4th female to share costs. If there are 4 of us, it would be about $60 per person, per night. Call me if you're interested.

Been to many trade shows but first time to Imaging USA. Heard it is best one of them all. I'll be driving down from Chicago early on Saturday so if anyone wants to share the long ride I could use some company. Haven't registered or booked a place to stay yet either so buddy pass and room sharing is a possibility. Non-smoker please.

I am looking for a female room mate, non smoker, on site for the 9-12th. I currently have a hotel reservation off site, but would prefer to share, and be on site. I need to cancel my other reservation by tomorrow to avoid penalties, so I need to get it figured out quickly! Also, I am looking to split a buddy pass. I am a new member so my registration is $219 vs. the $269. At least that was the option the other day when I registered for the expo. If for some reason that is not accurate I would still like to share both. Please email me at angeleyesphoto@windstream.net.

Thanks,
Jessica

Hooked up with Wendy below, so the room is squared away! Still working on the buddy pass, but may have that lined up as well. If interested on the buddy pass for $110.50, please email me, in case the other doesn't pan out. angeleyesphoto@windstream.net

Hello

I'm heading to Nashville on Saturday night and I'm looking to share a room with someone, I'm arriving on Saturday night, leaving on Thursday morning, also I have two models coming to the room for a Boudoir shoot from 8-11 on Sunday and Monday nights, you can share shooting them with me if you want.

I don't mind sharing it with a Dude or a Duda :) as long as they are clean and they know where their space ends and mine begins.

I'm willing to share 50/50 and I'll pay in cash. I was originally coming with a friend but they bailed on me at the last min..

separate beds is a must :) I kick a lot.

if you are interested please email me on Christina@christinawehbe.com

or call me 6305507516

the room has to be in the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center

This is late, but if anyone has a room at Opryland and still needs a roommate, my friend Vincent Lawson is looking for a roommate. We will drive up tomorrow and leave Tuesday afternoon.

Vincent may be reached at 251-753-1269.

If anyone decides last minute they need a roomate and don't mind staying at a nearby hotel(Days Inn) You'll be staying for little to nothing and so just email me or tweet message me, katrina.wheeler at gmail dot com, and katrina_wheeler is my twitter. We have two of us already(Girls only) and could use a couple more,

Can we get an updated sticky for 2011? I'm looking for a buddy for January 2011 - I'm a new aspiring member and it will be $169 for me to take someone (so, $169/2) or $129 for just me to go with my friend (a new Professional PPA member, going for free). I thought it would be better to go for $84.50 with someone rather than the whole $129 to go with my friend. Anyone interested?

(I'll be driving down with my friend all 3 days, so I don't need a hotel buddy, just a registration buddy)
