I have gone to two shows twice each place. Two to Atlanta, two to Philly. Going to Vegas. Philly was cool if you wanted eqipment you could talk to the vendor all day-slow as could be, hence no more Philly show. Atlanta is great, the area is good, had great classes, good meeitng other framers, many vendors there.
I enjoyed Atlanta for the education most of all. I did meet several of grumblers and that was a hoot...PittyPats needs some veggy friendly meals.
Let you know on Vegas...I got to go watch No Limit Texas Hold'em on ESPN to prepare for the show. Maybe I will come home with knowledge and money instead of coming home with knowledge in hopes of making money.
Two years ago I went to Atlanta for the classes. This year to buy moulding and meet with friends. Turns out I learned almost as much this year chatting instead of sitting in classes. But to tell you the truth, I can't wait to take a few more. Maybe next year?
