    And when will there be an AEA Denver? Is there demand for such a beast?

    What about the Twin Cities?

    You know that I know that you know that we’d love to have you guys over here…

    Is not even that cold anymore!!! =)

    Honestly, Randy, not that we’ve seen. It gets mentioned every now and again, but it didn’t score high on interest surveys we did a couple of years ago, and in talking to other conference organizers, they haven’t seen much interest coming out of that area either. We’re certainly willing to be shown otherwise, of course!

    Unfortunately, even though I live here, I will be unable to attend. I just can’t afford it with all the other stuff I’ve got coming up. :(

    Ok ! , all i see on your blog is AEA tickets available , AEA tickets sold, AEA dinner, some of us cant attend that ! and we feel unprivileged , if you want to post such stuff you should also start a random selection of one of your visitors with a fully sponsored visit to anEventApart from any place around the globe ! :)

    If you’re planning to attend, we’ve just posted some suggested hotels, including two nice ones right on the waterfront, from which you can walk to the conference center.

    We are in fact quietly helping some folks attend each show who otherwise couldn’t. Flying people around the globe won’t ever happen, though.

    Not this year. Quite possibly next year; thanks very much for your interest. We established the conference last year and will spend this year growing it bigger while maintaining or increasing quality. If all goes well, next year we can look at taking it off the continental US.

    Thanks for the feedback, Eric (and Jeffrey). Apparently I need to muster up some interest. I’d love to travel but my schedule and finances make both tricky most of the time. Thanks, again.

    Randy, if there is interest, we would love to hit Denver.
