The best conference that I've been to was several years ago in Raleigh, N. Carolina. At the same time in the same hotel we stayed at was being held the Miss North Carolina pagent. PASTURES OF PLENTY! I've never seen so many beautiful, statuesque women in one place in my life. Unfortunately, they all seemed to have a bulldog chaperone with them, but nothing said we couldn't look. We also found a micro-brewery/restaurant two blocks away. Why couldn't more conferences be like that?
