This is a fun event and a good way to meet the dealers you may be seeing on the internet. The selection is not quite as overwhelming as it was in days of yore, but the choices are still pretty good. The chance to meet, greet and ask questions is one of the best reasons to come, but I also always walk away with a great buy or two. I'll be at one of the tables and you're likely to find other APUGger's wandering the aisles or manning booths.
The best deals are to be found, as is always the case in big shows, at the beginning and at the end of the show. The chance to schmooze goes on all day, both days.
