Happy New Year - Looking forward to DLV 2018:

Welcome to those who just joined the mailing list!

Welcome back to those who have been with us!

You can expect the mailings on this list to come out every 1-2 weeks as
needed between now and shortly before the event.

This is the "kick-off" mailing for Diva Las Vegas 2018, which will
happen in Las Vegas, Nevada, US, from Sunday, April 15 thru Friday,
April 20, 2018.

Diva Las Vegas 2018 will be our 22nd. annual event and we hope all of
you can join us!

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

If you're new and interested in attending, please read the "What You
Need To Do" item below.

Questions? In almost all cases, you can simply reply to our general
mailings with any questions or concerns. Replies to these mailings are
valid and are read by a human, four of them, actually. :)

Answers to most common questions are answered, often in depth, in our
Frequently Asked Questions list, on line at:

Registration for Diva Las Vegas 2018:

Registration is now open.

Most individuals who have attended a DLV event in recent years should
have received their re-registration email, which includes a personal
link to the Attendee Information Portal. This allows you to do a "close
to one click" re-registration for the 2018 event.

If you've attended DLV before and did not receive your re-registration
email, or if you will be a first-time attendee, you may register at the
following URL:


Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding
registration or any other topic relevant to the upcoming event.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
What you need to do:

For those who are new, the steps you need to take if you want to attend
DLV can be summed up as:

1. Read the web site (http://divalas.vegas/) to be sure you know what
Diva Las Vegas is, what it is not, and if DLV is something you would
want to attend. Please note that DLV is not based on the model used for
most of the other major TG events.

2. Register for DLV. Registration is now open. See registration URL
above. (MyDLV members may register or re-register at their convenience
by following the appropriate link.)

3. Make your travel and/or hotel reservations, if necessary. Info on our
suggested hotels is on line and a summary appears below. Please note the
offer for special rates at the Flamingo.

4. Show up and have a great time!

Simple, isn't it? :)

Any questions? Concerns? Please let us know.

Suggested hotels for DLV 2018:

Our suggested hotels for Diva Las Vegas 2018 are, in alphabetical order:

Four Queens

Further notes on each of these hotels appears on line here:


We make hotel suggestions primarily for those who wish to stay close to
other DLVers, those unfamiliar with Las Vegas hotels, and those unsure
of which hotels are TG-friendly.

The hotel suggestions are just that, suggestions. There's no requirement
that you stay in our suggested hotels.

In the event that none of the suggestions on this page meet your needs,
please check out the Casino-Hotel and Non-gaming Hotel sections on our
Big List for other possibilities. https://divalas.vegas/vendors/

Special DLV rates at the Flamingo:

Our negotiated DLV rate is $55 per night for weekday nights covering the
span from April 11 through April 25. This is a discount of 37% from the
regular rates and 22% from currently-available (December 29) web special

Please see note below regarding weekend rates!

To book your room using the special rates, please do one of the

1. Phone 888-373-9855 (toll-free within US) and book your room using the
code SFDIV8. Please note that the reservationist taking your call will
not be aware of the nature of our group.

2. Visit the URL https://aws.passkey.com/go/SFDIV8 and book your room on

Notes and caveats. Please read carefully!

Quoted room rates do not include taxes and fees, particularly that pesky
daily "resort fee" which is added daily to all rooms at all major Strip
resorts. Please be aware of the "total cost of ownership" of your hotel

Weekend room rates have been fluctuating wildly due to anticipated
supply and demand. Due to this, it is possible that regular rates for
the weekend nights may be lower than our negotiated weekend rates, which
were set in November and are currently being reviewed. If you plan to
stay for any of the adjoining weekend nights, please be sure to
carefully compare the weekend rates available to the general public
(http://www.caesars.com) with the weekend rates available using the link
above and book your room accordingly.

If you are a member of Total Rewards, the player's club sponsored by
Caesars and Harrah's casinos, please be sure to check to see if you have
any "casino rate" or complimentary rooms available by logging in to
http://www.caesars.com using your Total Rewards card number. Casino rate rooms
are almost always lower than rates posted for the general public and may
be lower than our negotiated rates.

Please let us know if you have any difficulty booking your room using
the link or phone number posted above.

Name tags for DLV 2018:

This will be a significant change for Diva Las Vegas 2018.

For DLV 2018 you will have three options for your name tag.

1. You will be able to print your own name tag insert(s) on your home
or office computer and printer and bring them with you. Tag holders
(various styles) will be available at Flamingo On-Site Check-In as well
as most of the other major DLV activities.

2. Bring along your previous year's DLV name tag. "Once a valid name
tag, always a valid name tag."

3. At the Flamingo On-Site Check-In as well as the two major gatherings
and any other activity marked "Name Tags Available" on the final
schedule, we will be able to generate a name tag for you. You may also
use this option if you forget to bring a self-printed tag or a previous
year's tag with you.

Self-printed tags and tags generated at DLV will have a special "QR"
code, which can be scanned with most smartphones to give you one-click
access to your Attendee Information Portal at any time. This will
include information such as detailed schedules, activity location maps,
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Activity updates:

Beginning later this month, we'll be publishing the working activity
schedule in these mailings. As always, please be sure not to use these
as a final accurate schedule!

Here are some highlights:

On Sunday we'll feature an Afternoon Social, followed by Happy Hour and
dining at various venues and then Late Night Dancing.

On Monday we'll have our first major gathering at the Bahama Breeze,
which has become a very popular venue for such an affair.

Just prior to our Welcome Meet and Greet, and also at the Bahama Breeze,
will be our Newcomer Welcome and Orientation. All first-time attendees,
including those who are of local residence, many years "out", familiar
with other TG events, etc. are encouraged to attend.

We'll have our Official Group Photo toward the end of the Welcome Meet
And Greet and we'll adjourn for Late Nite Dancing.

The Diva Las Vegas Invitational Golf Tournament will happen on Tuesday
morning of DLV week. This will be held at Sunrise Golf Course. Golfers
of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels are encouraged to

On Thursday afternoon we'll have indoor golf at Topgolf, which was a new
but highly-rated activity for DLV 2017.

Our second major gathering will happen on Thursday evening at the Off
The Strip Bistro, located right across the promenade from the Flamingo.

Most mornings will begin with Katie's Koffee Korner, an informal
gathering, at the Flamingo.

Our daily "Lunch With" series will happen noon-ish. See final schedule
for exact times as this may vary from day to day.

We're repeating our very popular Late Night Dancing each evening.

On Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of DLV week, we'll have on-site DLV
check-in at the Flamingo. See final schedule for exact times. Name tags
and name tag holders will be available. This will also give you the
opportunity to ask any questions you have in person, and address any
concerns you may have.

Many more activities are in the works! Stay tuned for details.
