Announcing Festool Connect 2018: Las Vegas on October 27
« on: August 08, 2018, 09:19 AM »
You’ve been asking, and we’re finally ready to announce …

[ Specified attachment is not available ]
Festool Connect 2018
Las Vegas, Nevada
Saturday, October 27

Why Las Vegas? First off, why not? It’s Vegas!

More importantly, it’s important that we see our friends all over the US and Canada. All of our previous Connect events have been on the eastern half of the country, and we want to show some love to our West Coast friends!

We’ll be announcing more specifics about the day’s event shortly — including some special guests that we’ll be bringing along.

As always, Festool Connect is a free event, but we request that you register in advance. This helps us plan for food, parking, swag, etc.

Register for free at festoolconnect.com.

There's so few hotels in the Vegas area.... (sorry, could not help myself). I would say wait until they announce the location, then find a hotel nearby. Festool's training center is in Henderson, but certainly that space will not allow for such an event. I have stayed at a nearby hotel that Festool suggests when they offer end user training classes, can't remember the name of the hotel, but honestly my last stay kind of sucked, so I would not recommend it personally...

@Don T

There are a lot of goodplaces to stay. If you take a end user class there they recommend sunset station (think thats the name). Rio and Texas have great buffets so you might want to look into them.

Ill be staying with my compadre (BIL) as I always do.

He'll be visiting this weekend Ill let him know Im coming.

Remember my burger babe Avitar. She's at the Heart Attack Grill and plenty like , its a fun place w Huge Burgers and fries its awesome.

There is also a Hofbrauhaus there.

As you can tell I can tell you where to eat.

But as far Hotels, Id say the grab closest to where the FT Connect is.

I know it seems to be a silly question but I was looking for suggestions from people that have done a class there. I thought waiting to see if Festool would make recommendations also.

Thanks Jobsworth for the food recommendations, I do love to eat. I ended up booking a room at the Skyline Hotel in Henderson.

This is my first connect also.  I might try to get out to Anderson Plywood since In Touch Tools closed.  Being retired is great, I just celebrated my 1 year anniversary a few months ago.  Loving every minute.

I read on Instagram that the venue for the event will be at The Enclave.  That is a little east of the airport.  Just mentioning this so that those who are looking for hotels close by can use this info for hotels etc.

It's a few miles off of the Vegas Strip. It should be a fun place for it.

He said re register. Do we need to register again if we received the incorrect message?

Passes won't be necessary. We'll have a registration table at the entrance, but you won't need a pass.

Those burgers are huge. The quadruple bypass is something like 12000 calories. They cook their food the old way in pure lard (like when I was a kid)

Yea I know but once in a while wont be bad

Tom Silva and Kevin O'Connor from This Old House will be there. Also, although he won't be there in an official capacity that we can really promote, Mike Holmes Jr. will be there as well.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! The first 500 pre-registered attendees will receive a 3.5 m sleeved hose (500276).

Be sure to register at festoolconnect.com.
