Society for Venturism announces: Cryonics Convention, Laughlin Nevada,—- Oct. 25, 26, 27, 2013

Posted: Wed, August 21, 2013 | By: Events



For those who are interested in the work of Dr. Aubrey de Grey and SENS, here is an excerpt from the schedule of speakers at the cryonics convention in October. All people of good will interested in life extensions and cryonics are welcome to register.

Friday 8:00 pm Aubrey de Grey PhD——SENS Research Foundation

Title of Presentation: A Biologist’s View on why cryonics is feasible. Many non-biologists presume that cryonics must be fantasy because it is not mainstream. This is a reasonable inference for those who do not appreciate how appallingly balkanised biology is, with almost all biologists being expert in only a very narrow area and having no time to study other areas. Since a field’s reputation for infeasibility is a reason not to pay attention it, this parlous situation is self-fulfilling. In this talk I will see to rectify it.

Each week, we will highlight a different speaker. Below is the complete schedule and how to register.

=======================================================

Cryonics Convention, Laughlin Nevada Friday, Saturday, Sunday,—- October 25, 26, 27, 2013

Speakers will be leading experts on cryonics, life extension, and related subjects. There will be information presented here for cryonicists that is not available to the general public at this time.

This event is structured to be very affordable. MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW - see below

In addition to the speakers and presentations here are some other considerations:

1. There will be an adjoining Exhibition Room with information tables and/or booths where attendees can pick up literature from leading cryonics and life extension organizations, and talk with some of their representatives in person. 

YOU CAN HAVE A FREE BOOTH: Any cryonics organization, or any cryoncist individuals that attend the event can have one info table (at no charge) to display their information, offer handouts, sell gifts, books or other items of interest to cryonicists.

2. The Riverside Resort and Laughlin Nevada are great places to have conventions and have some more fun at the same time. Besides the casino with gambling, bowling alley, several movie theaters, and conventional game rooms.

3. MOST AFFORDABLE CRYONICS CONVENTION EVER. The rates for the convention, meals, and the rooms will be extremely reduced rates for us as Mr. Laughlin is a long-time cryonicist: 

Rooms $29 and $49 per nite. 

Buffet dinner parties (Fri & Sat nites) $20 each. 

Registration fee is only $75. 

So this convention will have everything, speakers, info booths, parties, relaxation and fun in the sun AND IT WILL BE VERY AFFORDABLE. 

If you have any questions, or suggestions, please send them to me at pizerdavid@rocketmail.com.

Sincerely. 

David Pizer, President, The Society for Venturism,
