However, a search of the GSA website reveals the quiet cancellation of another GSA conference that was to be held at the same M Resort Spa Casino as the infamous Clown-and-Mind-Reading conference. The short description that the Google search finds says the conference was to be held "Wednesday, September 5, 2012 - Thursday, September 6, 2012 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM. The M Resort 12300 Las Vegas Boulevard South Henderson, NV 89044." But clicking on the link brings up a page that begins "We apologize for the inconvenience... The link or location you used does not exist or has changed." However, there is a Google cache version of the original page. The event was to be called "Opening Doors NEVADA." A further search revealed the existence of a separate website for the conference. However, clicking on the registration link brings up a page with the following message: "We are sorry to announce the cancellation of our GSA Opening Doors 2012-2013 small business conference series in the Pacific Rim Region." No reason is given for the cancellation.
GSA conference held in Las Vegas in 2010 (July) was anything like the October conference. The 21st Annual Child Care Conference of the GSA was held at the Paris Hotel and Casino (pictured right) in Las Vegas July 13-15, 2010. Is it possible lightning struck twice that year? Only time (and perhaps YouTube) will tell.
