It is actually a lot of the above that you mentioned that is a draw for me personally ... While I like to get Technical Training, I absolutely prefer to see what is coming down the road in the near future, getting sneak peeks, and possible freebies & promotions/discounts/giveaways that go with it for seeing it for the first time ... Those are the biggest draws for me personally. Then getting to meet people and have the networking possibilities with people that are not in direct competition with my own business, having that ability to maybe call on someone when in need (or a tight spot, etc) and vice-versa, or even having the ability to possibly grow business into an area and know if you need someone with hands or eyes in the area that will help is great! Getting to meet the leadership behind the products and get heard with some concerns is also a good plus, and finally the entertainment and celebrities are just icing on the cake!2
