2019 AWS re:Invent Ultimate Guide

The tips, tricks, and insider hints for the 2019 AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas from December 2–6, 2019

AWS re:Invent is taking place December, 2—6, 2019 in Las Vegas. Yet again, this promises to be the biggest cloud event of the year. Last year’s event was amazing. “Jam packed” doesn’t even begin to describe it — and yet, somehow this year is sure to be even better!

In the meantime, you can sign up with AWS to receive conference updates — including a notification when registration opens.

Registration & Lodging

First up is registration. It opens 21-May-2019.

No official word on hotel rooms yet this year but last year and for the last couple of years, the conference room rates have been tied to registration. This means if you want to get a well positioned hotel room at the lowest rate possible, you want to register as quickly as possible.

These hotel room blocks disappear quickly. Making sure you have everything lined up for the 21st of May is a smart idea.

The official campus hasn’t been published yet but last year (2018) it was spread across seven properties with room blocks at an additional seven.

The challenge — as with last year — is that you will need to hop between venues throughout the week. The good news? These are all nice properties and it’s hard to go wrong.

Content in 2018 was divided among all of the seven main properties with breakouts from every track hosted in each location. The two big stand outs for events were the Quad—hosted at the Aria—and the Expo—hosted at The Venetian/Palazzo.
