Tim and I go every year. We love it. Even though we are old school luddites we still always come away with so much new info. The networking is great. You get to meet folks in person that we have all only talked to on the phone or by email. There are always friendly and helpful industry folks to talk to. Oh yeah and the food is always great.
I always come away inspired.
If you can, go. It's worth every penny.
Have fun and make lots of jewelry
