This is in Washington DC, there is tons of stuff to do. I can't give specifics because I am 100 miles away, but it is a major city. DC is going to be fairly expensive, more so during the middle of the week.

I might be meeting Mike from techpb up there one of the days, but I won't have much time because of work.

I might have a booth for TechPB but I expect the attendance to be dismal. Through some horrific decision making by the folks who put on Extravaganza, attendance has been in a decline for both vendors and also for attendees. Most stores have a hard time justifying the cost to make the trip, and most vendors have a hard time justifying the high price for having a booth.

They need to put these tradeshows in places like Las Vegas, where you can show up and have 10% business, 90% pleasure and still be able to write the trip off in your business taxes. Most stores just want to show up, be there for an hour or two, then hit the casinos afterwards.

It has been amusing watching this tradeshow develop. Last Extravaganza, KEE pulled a funny one and instead of having a booth, they rented a couple high dollar "suites" upstairs and did all their business up in the suites upstairs. Then of course, they were trying this bizarre "no media" policy which really backfired on them. With low attendance, and no product to sell, all the vendors were begging for any sort of publicity to justify the cost. When they didn't get that, they didn't come back

I could go on for days about Extravaganza, I better stop there. Maybe if they'd put me on their "panel" I could give them a different opinion / perspective on how to increase numbers. We'll see how this one pans out :-)

If it would have been in vegas I wouldn't attend hehe, the ''pleasure expense'' would be too high. Since it my first time I go maybe the 100$ price to attend is ok in my book, I am going to see some people I dealed with since 2009-2010 and make new contacts in the sports.

Thats why I was inquiring about what was fun to hit at night :P

"no media"
I fixed this for how it should be going down.
There is some wiggle room on the no media policy
