I was very disappointed in the vendor session turn out. No effort was made for signage on rooms and the time was not conducive for participation because it was right after it started and people did not really know who was presenting yet. I also felt bombarded and harassed a bit about money even though I paid everything before it was due. Loved the booth location but would likely not do vendor sessions again. Overall good conference compared to others I have been to around the world. I was not selected to do a session even though I have extensive experience with keynote presentations and presentations which was also disappointing. This was the first conference ever that I attended but was not selected to speak. We enjoyed the children that was a real treat! Good work team!

1) As a new homeschool family we decided to invest in all the workshops on the flash drive, and spend a majority of our time speaking with curriculum developers in the vendor hall. The 3 most key workshops/keynote for us to attend in person were the foreign language one, the record keeping one, and Sam Sorbo’s keynote. Each were worth the price of admission. 2) As s 1st timer, leave your checkbook in your hotel room so you won’t be tempted to buy the first curriculum you see in the vendor hall. Take time to learn about each one and buy later. Several offered discounts that lasted for several days or more after the conference is over!3) Take time to pray at the start of each day, and over each decision together with your spouse.
