1. Is it worth it if you don't trade stocks? 2. I am not interested in taking any classes, (maybe elder's) so I am basically going to meet some friends, see some products, blah blah, you know the stuff people do at conventions. I would like to know if there are going to be any derivative vendors there, I only saw a few on the website, less than I expected. 3. Is the Marriott a good deal at 199 a night?.....I figured there only bc thats where the convention is. Better ones within a mile radius? 4. I was suppose to go the past 2 yrs but couldn't, those of you who have, is it worth it if you don't trade stocks? 5.I have younger relatives in NYC who are working/going to school, would it be hard getting them a pass to the expo? 6. Can I yell and make a scene at the vendors I don't like or do they have security.....jk ? Thanks for your input. Are any of you guys/girls going to this thing or is mostly for newbies?
