I haven't been to that one, but I have been to other shows/conferences. There are a lot of vendors, and the conferences are usually very informative. There is one coming up in march in providence, RI, which isn't far from CT. I will be attending this one as well. http://www.nertf.org/show/index.shtml

I went to the tradeshow in at the westchester county center. it was good. i got the member price and went to the natural lawn care seminar. it was pretty interesting. Trade show was good. Almost walked out with a new truck but decided to wait at the last minute. They had amazing deals on all types of equipment. I suggest you guys in the Northeast check it out. I thought it was worth the money but its only 10 minutes away for me where as some of you guys are a little more further.

IMO the show isn't worth it. Go one year and that's about it. The only real good thing about it is that you get to hear all the new DEC rules and regs. There are some vendors there, but nothing special. As far as the other speakers go... besides Tom... they aren't worth listening to.
