    I am planning on attending. Will be on the trade show floor on Tuesday and making the rest of the week into a mini-vacation for the wifey and I.

    Have yet to make the reservations, but we do have a babysitter for the kids booked.

    No I'm not. Not sure they are even attending to be honest. I did that gig as a Launch for the Luxxo Lamp, it's not a full time thing for me. :)

    James- gotta admit, it is more important to get that sitter booked than the hotel.

    We went last year. Ash really wanted to hit NYC this year but the dates are not working for us. Let me know if you see anything new and exciting Mike.

    I just scanned through expedia... over 420 hotels in mid-town and Central Park areas rated 3Stars and above! WoW.

    No this year. I'm not a fan of New York City. I'm curious which mfrs will be pulling back their spending this year. I'm really into waterskiing and its amazing how many major tournamnets aren't happening this year as the boat mfrs will not put forth the spending to support it. No sponsor money no tourney.
    It's a great op though for those who are strong enough to make it through. I mean people like Mike G, James S, etc...the economic downturn is great for them as it weeds out the guys who aren't strong enough to make it through.
    I'd hate to see a few mfrs not be able to make it through though...you know Kichler, Unique, etc...they will make it...who won't is the big question.
    Further, do guys who specifically so landscape lighting find LightFair worth it? I go to research things like LED cobra heads and things like that. Are there enough mfrs of landscape lighting there to make it worth travelling to NYC or Vegas? Or is it holiday? Just curious.
