How was your experience?
This was the first time I attended this show. I coincidentally wandered over to the area when Rick Steves was talking and also managed to listen to Patricia Schultz (1000 Places to See Before You Die). Both were great speakers. My main problem with this show was the competing stages. While listening to Patricia Schultz, Mark DeCarlo was on a stage opposite doing a cooking segment and was VERY LOUD. A few times Patricia stopped talking briefly. It was just distracting trying to listen to her and ignore this other show. I suggest the organizers take this into account when scheduling their speakers.
