    Question,
    if some people use their contacts, for a two day conference, would you attend if the only price is you stay at a particular hotel?

    You see, some people are thinking of a conference with main topic, taught by the manufacturers, for both installers and inspectors, must one or the other,

    now, to get the conference room for free, they will only require the attendees stay at the hotel, if you want to stay another place, you can not attend,, two days, conference free, to learn about the different products from several manufacturers, no speeches from the sales department , the manufacturers can only send their techs,,, so,

    what do you guys think? your only cost is room, food and travel,,, tell me what you guys think,, the "hot" topic will be revealed at a later date,,

    "Question,

    Is it going to be held in Coos Bay, Oregon? .... or do I also need to spend $600 in travel expenses?.................... being that all seminars are held in the largest of the large, cities?
    ... are you saying someonemight pay my travel expenses?

    OK, I re read the post, Selva.
    "what do you guys think? your only cost is room, food and travel"
    Not to mention taking at least three days off........ it's pain sometimes living in the itty bitty towns.
    If money weren't the issue, I'd be there in a nonosecond. I can easily see this costing in real money, at least $1000 unless it's held very close to home.

    Sounds good to me, but I would need to know a lot more. I can't fly without a huge airline surcharge for oxygen now (I'm talkin' 500 bucks and up), so if it's in driving distance, I'd go.

    For me, WHEN it is is more important than WHERE it is. Tough as hell to get away from may 1st till about october 31st.

    I'm definitely interested, though.
