I'm going in October. How did you find an apt in BA?
I was in Salta a couple of years ago and really liked the town and the area. I rented a car and drove down to Cafayate in the wine country south of Salta. Beautiful drive and Cafayate is a nice town. Enjoy.
I'm considering going back and this time driving north through Jujuy, Hamahuaca and Iruya.

I will be in Argentina 21 Aug - 10 Sept. Going to Salta 23-30 after a day rest in B.A. at my favorite Apt. hotel Torre Christoper Colombo in Palermo. Then back to B.A. in my apt. for a week and, maybe, the last 3 days in Montevideo (by way of ferry).
I have a local travel agent that I use for some bookings that are not easy to get on Web - such as the ballet, opera, symphonies, remis from airport, and hotels in remote towns. She is very good and responsive. My brother and I both have used her services. Email me or PM me if you want name.
I use bytargentina.com for apartements - but there are about 3 others. I think they have good selection and know their routine. Decent studio furnished is about $200 / week; 1 bedroom more delux about $300/week. I stay in Palermo as it is not a tourist haven, but lots of great restaurants, cafes, shopping, internet places, laundries, etc. And not expensive nor hard to get downtown.
I will look up the FT meeting and see if I can attend.
Also, just found a great guy with tons of info if you want to attend a soccer game. Usually on Sun pm, but not if National team plays that Sun (then on Wed. I think). If is lots of fun -- just do not root for the visitors if you are in home section!!
I have a car for Salta week, and will go south to Cafayate and then up north. Heard the Train to the Clouds is disabled right now -- but heard one can drive the road next to train and see much of the same in much less time.
I leave next Friday - so if you have questions, PM me.
