Hotels on KAYAK for San Antonio, TX SolidWorks World 2011

There’s a funny commercial from Priceline.com where William Shatner plays his own evil twin who tries to talk someone into booking through a website that is offering a sale by declaring, “it’s a sa-ell; nothing beats a sa-ell.”

This is a sly reference to a Star Trek episode where Kirk did indeed have an evil twin.

As far as getting good prices for rooms and flights for SolidWorks World 2011, be sure to shop around.  If bidding on rooms and flights isn’t your thing, then check out KAYAK.  It provides alerts via email when deals that fit your criteria become available from almost any other travel site.

Also, be aware that business travel is more complex in these times of airline baggage fees, carry on bag fees, handling fees, overweight fees, Groundhog Day fees, unleavened bread fees, etc.  Many travel agencies simply will not handle baggage and other particular fees, which leaves the traveller to pay when they arrive at the airport.   Reimbursement for these on-the-spot fees from your company can be a serious pain.  Have you ever tried collecting credit card interest from an employer?  It’s next to impossible.

So, travellers should be cautious and frugal.  Plan ahead for any trips.  It’s hard to believe that SolidWorks World 2011 is so near.  Didn’t we just get done with 2010?

As a drafter, mechanical designer and CAD engineer, I've been in the mechanical design field since 1991. For the first 8 years of my career, I was an AutoCAD professional. I utilized AutoLISP and many other AutoCAD customization features to streamline drafting activities for 6+ drafters and designers. I authored several custom functions, one of which was published in the March 1997 issue of Cadalyst Magazine. Since 1998, I've been used SolidWorks non-stop. I've worked to utilize the SolidWorks' user environment to simplify drafting and design activities for 20+ engineers. I've created this website to provide current information about SolidWorks from a variety of contributors. More recently, I am now employed by Dassault Systemes as SOLIDWORKS Sr. Product Definition Manager to improve drawing, annotation and MBD related areas.

  1. If you can get into the Drury Plaza Hotel Riverwalk, it’s comfy and a pretty good price. It’s straight down market street from the convention center too.
