Bear with me, but this is my BEEF for the day. Connections conferences: Something I've always wanted to do, but every year I price it up and it becomes "not worth it". Here is this year's rates to go: Airfare and Car rental Tampa to CWB $2271.00 (2 adults and 1 child) Lodging for 4 nights at Hilton $1154.64 Total food/meals three people $800.00 Entry fees/admission etc. $100.00 Gas for driving around $100.00 Money for tourism elsewhere on trip $500.00 Shuttle to airport and back $360.00 Anything else I might have forgot $200.00 Total expense to look at truckmounts: $5500.00 roughly All those people that keep saying they are going there for $400 please tell me how you are doing it because this is the best trip plan I could find. It does include taking my family, and going to a few other places besides Connections while we are there for the 5 day trip. For the same money, we can do a full 7 nights at a 4-5 star luxury accomodation anywhere in the Carribbean with meals, booze, transport, tours, everything. Or we could do a luxury cruise carribbean or Alaska for 9 days, including getting off the boat and doing various tours. We could tour Peru and take a tour to Macchu Piccu up in the Mountains for less than this. The link below shows a super high-end resort that Celebrities stay at in Bermuda. I priced up an entire week staying here for LESS than going to connections. http://www.atlantis.com/accommodations/thecoveatlantis/rooms/deluxeoceansuite.aspx So, why would I want to spend it just to look at truckmounts and accessories that I cannot afford because I just spent all my money on this trip? Hopefully one day they will bring the conference further north and stop doing it in the same place at the same time, for the SAME people every year. You might just find some NEW customers.
