2012 VISTA Expo & Symposium, 11-14 September, Where?

Now that the 2011 VISTA Expo and Symposium has concluded, we are hard at work on planning the next conference. We have tentatively selected September 11-14, 2012 for the next VISTA Expo and Symposium. Our next task is to choose a location.

The Marriott in Redmond was wonderful, and we are in conversations with them about using them again. However, we are strongly considering making the VISTA Expo and Symposium a moving conference, holding it in a different place every year. To that end, we have identified two other possible cities for 2012.

One possibility is Reno/Sparks, Nevada. It has the advantage of being close to Oroville Hospital, one of VISTA’s early Meaningful Use success stories. It also provides an opportunity for a couple of days’ vacation, if people would like to come a little early or stay a little late.

Another possibility is Albuquerque, New Mexico. Its principal advantage is that it would make things easier for our friends in Indian Health Services, so that more of them might be able to attend. And Albuquerque is also a lovely place for a few extra days.

We are getting opinions and feedback from a variety of sources, and we are interested to know what the hardhats think. Redmond, Reno, or Albuquerque? Which would you prefer for the 2012 expo?
