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.

***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

Marc,

You would probably stand a better chance of finding the kind of roommate you're looking for if the convention was being held down here in N'Awlins...

I'm 32, from Chicago and strictly weddings and acting headshots :) let me know if interested. I do not have a pass yet to the convention and am looking for one...

Hi, I am really interested in going to Imaging this year, but can’t afford to do so with out a someone to spit the costs with! I was looking at staying at the Holiday Inn, even though it is a little bit of a walk, it’s half of the price! (Google Maps says about 10 min.) Also, I was hoping to find someone that was going to be getting there early for the Pre Convention classes or SEPCON. Let me know if you are interested! crystal@crystalblackphotography.com

Crystal

PS. Looking for female, non-smoker. Thanks.

I'm a friendly 26 year old first timer to Imaging USA and looking for a fellow lady photographer to room with close by the convention center (within walking distance). I am flying in on Saturday the 15th and leaving first thing in the morning on the 19th. I have not booked a room yet. Roommate must be a non-smoker since I am allergic. If you want to share a room please let me know.

Marc,

You would probably stand a better chance of finding the kind of roommate you're looking for if the convention was being held down here in N'Awlins...

After our last trip to N'Awlins for convention some years ago I'm not sure my wife is allowed in the glass elevators any more.

But...that's a whole nother story...!

I am new this year to PPA and will be attending Imaging USA for the first time this year. I am looking to room with a fellow male roommate (non smoking.) Will share costs of the room. Coming in Sat the 15th and leaving the 18th. I do not have room reservation.

Lori_Lambert
09-14-2010, 07:59 PM
Crystal, I am going to pre-con classes starting Friday so I will be needing a room from the 14th-18th. (I'll splurge on a room for 19th, since I dont want to drive home after last days classes) I prefer to stay at the Marriott or one of the closer hotels for security and convenience and think it would be worth the extra money. If you need a room mate still, let me know. I am non-smoker, female... :)

Hi Crystal

We have a room booked at the Holiday Inn and there was 3 women in our group, however one had to cancel recently. If you are interested in sharing a room with us it would be $51 a night (+tax) You could have your own queen bed and we are arriving on Saturday Jan 15th. Let me know asap if you are interested and we can chat (we are both non smokers from Michigan).

Hi Tracey

We are staying at the Holiday Inn and originally there was three of us women and now there are two (one recently had to cancel her trip) If you are interested in sharing a room with the two of us it would be $51 each person per night (+tax). You could have your own queen bed. We are arriving on Saturday Jan 15th so let me know asap if you are interested as I am replying to all of these women photographers who are also looking to share a room too. We are both non- smokers ...non snorers...from Michigan

Just a FYI..most military/gov emp should know this, but check the military/gov rates. Case in Point Hyatt Place Riverwalk is about 140 a night for a King bed and a view of the river. With discount its 106. A little savings. But savings is always worth it. This is not always the case. The hotels will base it off what they know the per diem rate is. So if the room is 90 a night they will charge 106 for the gov rate.

Hi. I have a buddy pass and a room to share at the Grand Hyatt. I booked the room from Saturday 1/15 to Monday 1/17 because I'm planning to leave late Tuesday. I think the room could be extended to accommodate someone staying longer. I am a 41 year old female non smoker from New Orleans. My email is lawlesscustoms@yahoo.com and my phone # is 985-960-3777.

We are all friends, fun but professional. The room is $263/ night (this includes tax), so the cost would be about $66/ night, if we split 4 ways.

Hi, my previous roommate didn't work out (she decided to bring her boyfriend along). So, I just booked a room at the La Quinta that is just a few blocks from the convention center. Let me know if you want to share the room. Looking for a female roommate, nonsmoker. Saturday through Monday night. $122 per night total, so your share would be $61 per night. Breakfast is included in the rate. Free Wireless Internet.

Plans have changed and am now able to come to Imaging USA for the first time. I live in Houston and plan on arriving late Saturday night or early Sunday, staying through Tuesday. I'm hoping to share a close hotel w/ female(s) & still need to buy a buddy pass. I'm 53 and an event photographer. Thanks!

I am looking for someone to room and share pass with. I am from Huntsville, AL and this will be my first time at imaging. I haven't booked a room yet, but I would like to be in walking distance. If anyone is interested let me know. If your from my area and don't want to make the long trip by yourself and would like to share cost this would be even better!

OK, so I finally worked out that folks are using this to discuss sharing a buddy pass for IUSA 2012!

So, anyone in the Colorado area looking to share a buddy pass? I would like to :)

Cheers,

Hi Chystal;

I am also looking for a roomate for Imaging USA. The only rooms left at the Embassy Suites are Non-Convention prices which are $365/night which is rediculous! I could use my AAA card discount and get it for $185/night but that's still pretty steep. Please let me know if you are still looking for a roommate for the convention! It would be nice to have someone to split the cost with!

Thanks!

Does anyone have a non-member buddy pass they would like to split? I am a very excited first timer who just bought my flight today. I would rather not have to join PPA due to the cost right now.

Looking to share a buddy pass for convention and possibly a room. I am a clean, married, non-smoking, and respectful person. I like do like to party but looking to take in as much as I can at the convention.

I was just in New Orleans a couple of weeks ago. We surprised my Dad for his 65th. birthday. He is a skydiver and we had way too much fun. I am also a Cajun food junkie and know of a couple of great places for the best Gumbo on the planet.

Anyway, please let me know.

Looking to share a room with someone. I will be arriving on Thursday the 12th. and leaving on Wednesday the 18th.

I am going to be doing a full schedule of classes and looking to take in as much as possible. However, I do like to enjoy some of the local festivites as well. I was just in New Orleans for my Dad's 65th. birthday and it was a little crazy. This trip won't be as crazy.

Please let me know.

BTW, I am a happily married man with a 18 year old son.

This was supposed to be my first year at Imaging USA, but unfortunately I've had to change my plans. The passes/badges (?) I was sent came with a paper that says it's an "exclusive badge...so that everyone can help you celebrate your first year with PPA" and so I'm not sure if that means they are a different color than the others or that was just wording meant to incite excitement. Also, other conventions I've been to have either had numbers or names on the badges and what I was sent had neither.

So, what I'm saying is I THINK I have two passes that are available for anyone who would like one at a price of $109 or the pair at a price of $215...or maybe I just have two purple pendants on ball chains that say 2012 Imaging USA on them and my entry passes/badges will either arrive later or be held at some will-call desk where they will languish as I definitely can't make it to New Orleans in January.

If you're not new to this whole thing and can advise me as to the nature of what I was sent - awesome, and many thanks. If you want to buy one of my passes or better yet both passes - bless you, you are an awesome person with a kind heart, a generous spirit, and fantastic hair that smells as divine as it looks...OK, I'm totally guessing on the generous part, but your hair is definitely fantastic! :-D

I'm hoping this wasn't TOO TLDR, and thanks in advance to all who respond!

Deena,

Is your pass one of the complementary passes that is given free to someone who just joined PPA for the first time, or are you a non-first-year member who is just attending the convention for the first time? I don't believe that the complementary passes given to new first-year members are transferable or salable to anyone else. If it's not your first year as a member and just your first time attending the convention, then the buddy pass that you purchased would be transferable to another person.

Deena_Austin
12-18-2011, 03:34 PM
Thanks for helping clarify, Rick. I joined PPA and then later in the year registered for Imaging. Looking back financially I see there was no charge when I registered so I must have the complimentary version.

My confusion came from when I registered being told I would receive a buddy pass and having seen that the join & register at the same time option came with 1 complimentary pass and then the envelope I was sent contained 2 "badges". Also, since I had already joined PPA as a separate sign up earlier I had selected the option for Imaging that said I was already a member rather than the join & go.

I'm guessing what I have are -->NEW KID HERE<-- necklaces which I suppose would grant me a bit of slack when asking 'dumb' questions had my plans not changed and I would have actually been able to go. Still not sure why I was sent 2 though!
