I think it is worth every penny to go at least once a year if you  
count the business ideas and interchange you get when meeting some of  
your fellow owners, even aside from the value of the educational  
sessions. There's stuff that gets discussed that just doesn't come up  
in email, or doesn't come up in the same way in email. It's made more  
than a $700 difference for me in my business. It's also amazing how  
nice a lot of these folks are when you get to meet them in person.

I think you can just do the show floor (which is free or close to  
free iirc), but you're likely to miss a lot not being in sessions  
with most everyone else since many conversations are sparked by the  
topics at hand or between sessions. But going and missing he sessions  
is better than not going at all IMHO.
