Ah' the convention. (?) Think Dave's thinking about attending. Before I heard of it by way of him, I never heard of it nor attended. If local enough or more so than LDI or USITT, and you want a convention I would think it of use to see what's offered. Beyond that and not that I am all that informed about them, I would not go too far out of my way to see it over some woodworking tool convention.
