Some really cool talks and vendor show coming to Chicago (Schaumburg). I've met and heard a couple of Oliver Knott's talks from past AGA Conventions and it's definitely worth it. I hope to be there for the convention.

Let me know which day you plan on going and I might join you. I was only thinking of doing the $10 admission and going either Saturday or Sunday. Maybe we could do a group meet up and go around together to check it out
