The Cost of Conferences: Defensible or Despicable?
I’ve gotten some interesting feedback about the likes and dislikes of traditional conferences. For the most part, there are disagreements on the pros and cons. Except for one thing.
There is one subject that many agree on, and some are passionate about.

And I have to say (having recently purchased flights and tickets for ISTE 2010) that I agree with you.
Now I am asking you the hard question.
We can agree that conferences are expensive, yes. The tickets, the traveling, the hotels, the miscellaneous expenses – it all adds up.
But the real question is, are traditional conferences too expensive?
So, what do you think? Does the value exceed the cost (or is it the other way around)? Are they worth every penny (or only every other)?
