As we plan our calendar of upcoming events many factors affect the feasability to setup an Expo in your area. We look at past Expo experience, support from the local region, requests for new areas, feedback from attendees, speakers, bloggers, and exhibitors. Of course conference center rentals, fuel costs, meals and lodging all play a part in the decisions we make. We also depend on you to tell us what you want to learn, where you want us to come, and how you can assist in the success of the event.
As we near the end of July we want to let you know what we have planned for the rest of 2012 and give you a sneak peek into 2013. Not all events you see here will be listed on the website. We want you to be among the first to know!
