Is anyone planning on going to the Denver show next month?

I'll be there from the 14th-18th :)

I guess not... :(

Well, if anyone does end up attending and wants to meet up I'll be downtown the 15th-17th. I'll be bringing some G&G copies and other collateral to share.

Nope. I will be in Hong Kong during that time. Bad timing for Denver, running nearly concurrently with the HK show. :?

One day? Ambitious, David.
Are you looking for something special or hoping to stumble on something you can't live without?

Stephen is meeting with someone that day so we decided to do a family trip. The show is significantly smaller than Tucson, so I can cover most of it in a day. Tucson that takes most of 9 days.

Unfortunately, no Denver for us this year, the management took a bit too much time to give us the details for booking the booth so we decided to go to the JVA conference in the UK instead, which was absolutely a BLAST, btw. we are preparing an article for the next issue of the Magazine, stay tuned!!!!

Denver was slow for sellers this year. I got a couple great deals as a result. The one day trip was tiring but a ton of fun.

I just got back last night after about 4 days at the shows. Definitely a slow year for most sellers, but I ran into several familiar faces who were vending for the first time in Denver. I was on a tight budget for purchases, but still came back with a few fun things. Most importantly I was able to catch up with colleagues from around the world and meet lots of new people to discuss education and solicit feedback. It was a great time!

Next year with the Hardrock Summit moving up to Westminister, I think it will be a bit tougher as it is much further away from the other shows than the convention center downtown. I'm not sure why they decided on that location.
