SPJ Convention Heads to the Strip

The 2010 Society of Professional Journalists Convention & National Journalism Conference is declaring itself the “journalism event of the year.”

“You don’t want to miss it!” states a SPJ release.

Maybe you don’t. It is, after all, being held in Las Vegas Oct. 3-5. Registration is open.

It hardly has the feel of work. Development sessions will be held at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, located on the famous Vegas Strip. (Think roulette breaks.) The hotel is sure to have entertainment that could entice a journo to attend — there’s a “Peep Show” striptease scheduled for the October conference dates.
