We're getting together a big saltwater fishing trip Wednesday but from 6 am Thursday until the last vendor is out Saturday night I'll be in full on work mode. Most of the contractors who invest in attending are there to increase their net worth. Even I was amazed at how many showed up at the 6am Early Risers on Saturday morning.
This isn't one of the "round tables" that you've heard about in the past, it's a professional convention.You would hate it!
And you would get lots of angry phone calls.
