What is The Summit?

The Summit is a gathering in Las Vegas of self-proclaimed 'vegas nerds'. Do you love gambling and drinking and Fremont Street? It just might be for you.

What about specific events over the weekend?

If you've been to The Summit or our other events before, you'll recognize much of the format that we have planned. We will have events starting Friday afternoon, Saturday and even on Sunday for Boosters. Yes, we are expecting to have a Main Event on Saturday at The D and more details about that will be available in the coming months.

Do I need a ticket?

As we've done in the past, packages are available for people that want guaranteed admission to the Main Event (plus you'll get some goodies).

Do you need any help with the event?

Thanks for asking! There may be a few places where some extra person-power would be useful and we'll put out the call as needed.

I'll come in 2020.

As always, no promises about anything beyond 2019. Seriously, don't assume there will be a next time. Might be, might not be.

I have other questions.

Cool, cool. Feel free to ask on Twitter.

Wait, there's a podcast?
