Depends on what you want to see and who you want to hear. I'm not sure what else you interested in besides plants. I'm into west african/Lake Malawi/Tanganyika/Victora; SA dwarfs; Rainbows and many others so I can relate to few topics. My main interest are plants but if this was the only interest, then I am not sure if I would attend such a big convention.
Let me know what day are the two auctions so I can plan the day trip out and decide which day to attend.
