    POSTED BY: Amy | DATE: Apr 12, 2017 - 11:26 pm

    Hi WildSider,
    I am Amy your Cruise Director and Chief Operating Officer once our boots hit the ground in Las Vegas for the 11th Annual Viva WildSide Sin City Soiree.
    I want to thank you for registering for this year’s event in our new digs at Bally’s and Harrah’s. We have moved up to center strip this year with lot’s to do in the area without having to go too far.
    I will be your main source of information during the Soiree so feel free to contact me with any questions or if you have any issues during the week or even before we arrive in Las Vegas.
    The following is some information that will be very helpful for you”
    • We have blocked Bally’s and Harrah’s for this year’s event. Bally’s is Sold out but there are plenty of rooms at Harrah’s if you have not yet booked your room.
    1. Reminder, the special WildSide rate at Harrah’s goes away on April 19th.
    • Sully’s Bar which is right near the Bally’s registration desk is a great meeting place whether you are simply waiting for someone or looking to find other WildSiders during the week. It is open 24 hours in case you need that one last cocktail after a night of partying.
    • WildSide Central is our official information/check in area. This year it will be located out at the Bally’s Pool. This is where you need to come to check in and pick up wrist bands, souvenir trinkets and other information. If you have not registered for our daily events you can do that here also. More detailed information will come about WildSide Central in a separate email.
    • Once again we will be taking walk in registrations. If you know someone that is coming but has not yet registered please let them know that they need to come to WildSide Central. Of course there is still plenty of time for them to register via Eventbrite at https://vws2017.eventbrite.com
    • Just so everyone know that our block at Bally’s is SOLD OUT at this time. There is however room at Harrah’s if you have not already booked your room.
    • While many of our scheduled events are free events in public places the following events are closed to only those registered for WildSide. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this.
    1. Pool Party at the Flamingo Pool requires a wristband to gain access. If you have registered for the Pool Party you can pick up your wristband from me at WildSide Central.
    2. Party Bus requires a wristband to board the buses. The buses will be color coded and you will receive a matching wristband from WildSide Central if you have registered for the Party Bus.
     Keep in mind that there are only 14 tickets left for the Party Bus.
    3. Suite Party is a CLOSED EVENT to only those that have registered for WildSide this year. Signs will be posted. The suite room numbers will be given out at WildSide Central.
    4. Lastly on our events, if you have not yet registered for any of them please do so. In past years I have received complaints from people stating that it took too long to get waited on at some events. Well it is pretty simple, I give a head count to the venues based on how many are have registered. If I tell them that 90 people are coming and then 150 people show up what else can be expected but to have a longer wait.
    • This year we have partnered with the following:
    1. Boudoir LA for your professional make up needs
     theboudoironline@gmail.com
    2. Phases and Photos for professional photo shoots
     pandp@telus.net
    3. Gina Ortiz for your professional make up needs
     gina@tstransitions.com

    • Our itinerary can also be found on our website at www.wildsidetg.com
    A couple of things to remember is that WildSide is not a sprint but more of a marathon so don’t wear yourself out in the first day. Our itinerary is a very fluid thing so feel free to do your own thing during the week.
    If you have not registered yet you can do so at the following link:
    https://vws2017.eventbrite.com
    One last thing! If you have not registered for any of our events yet or booked your hotel room please feel free to contact Amy Elizabeth Wiltshire. I am always here to help.

    WildSide's 11th Annual Sin City Soirée
    Eventbrite

    Since our initial invasion of Las Vegas in 2007, this amazing group of trans individuals known as WildSide has been bringing our signature event, the annual Sin City Soirée to the glitz & glamour capital of the world, Las Vegas, NV. The Soirée has grown from a small gathering of friends into one of the preeminent trans happenings of the year; bringing in people together from all over the globe. Here is your opportunity to enjoy a whole week of authenticity packed with all the fun and excitement you can handle. This year is very special for us as we are ushering in a new era of WildSide. As trans visibility grows, so do many new and exciting opportunities for the Soirée. One of the biggest of these new opportunities for us is a long-term change in venue. We have signed a five-year contract with the Caesars groups of hotels, which means we will be saying goodbye to the Tropicana and welcoming Bally's as our new official home base. We've also added Harrah's as our secondary hotel. Both hotels will not only provide some always welcome financial relief to our guests, but it now puts one of the most TRANStastic events on the planet right in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. What will never change however, is our commitment to presenting our guests with the same love and intimacy we've had since we started all this. The camaraderie that started with seven people in 2007 has carried on from year to year to now include hundreds from all over the globe coming together in love, support and empowerment. Beyond being the most epic trans party anywhere WildSide is about bringing people together. It's about forming friendships that will last a lifetime because once you join WildSide, you are family. And in this family, your only chore is to share your passion and support with your tribe. So join us on May 15 - 21, 2017 for a time like you've never had before. The Sin City Soirée isn't a convention. There are no seminars or workshops here. This is a community building, friend making party for trans people of all kinds and from all over. Whether you are coming out for the first time, transitioned years ago or are anywhere else on the gender spectrum, the Soirée is a non-stop, mega-celebration of friendship, community and empowerment of the highest order.

  • 11th Annual Viva WildSide - Sin City Soiree Important Announcement!!!
    POSTED BY: Amy | DATE: Mar 14, 2017 - 10:02 pm

    Hey Fellow WildSider!
    Important Announcement!!!
    First of all thank you for registering for this year’s 11th Annual Viva WildSide Sin City Soiree. Your committee has been working overtime getting all the I’s dotted and T’s crossed to make this the best WildSide ever and we are looking forward to seeing you in May.
    We are coming down to crunch time with 61 days left before we begin our wild ride of fun and friendship.
    Your friends at Viva WildSide have a special group rate discount for Bally’s and Harrah’s during the week of May 12th-22nd 2017 which is during the 11th Annual Sin City Soiree.
    Many of the nights in our Bally’s hotel room block are close to being filled!!
    Late hotel bookers may find being charged the WildSide special rate for some nights (where we still have nights in our block available) and the regular hotel rate for other nights (where the amount of nights we asked to be set aside for us have been filled).
    Meanwhile, there are lots of rooms left in our block at Harrah’s, no danger of not getting the WildSide rate there, for the time being.
    Bally’s: $59 per Sunday-Thursday, $119 per Friday-Saturday
    Harrah’s $45 per Sunday-Thursday, $109 per Friday-Saturday

    We have done the math and a week’s stay would be an average savings of 35% off market prices.
    A 6 night stay from Monday to Sunday would be roughly:
    Bally’s =$733
    Harrah’s =$648
    Bally's Las Vegas is the official hotel of WildSide's 11th Annual Sin City Soirée. If you prefer, we have also secured Harrah's as a secondary hotel in 2017. Both Bally's and Harrah's were contracted to hopefully ease financial concerns and to also allow ALL of our guests to stay together as a large, fabulous group. A dedicated website has been created to book your accommodations with the special WildSide group rates at:
    Point is, if you haven’t booked your hotel reservations yet,
    DON’T DELAY ANY LONGER!!!!
    If you have already booked your hotel room please let me know. Also if you did not book at either Bally’s or Harrah’s please let me know where you booked as this information is very helpful in negotiations each year.
    If you need the information for booking your room please feel free to contact Amy who will be happy you help you out.
