Default Attend painting shows?

Do you guys attend painting shows? As far as I know of here in Ontario, Canada, we don't really have any shows other than SW at their own stores and BM does a small annual show. I heard of the PDCA in Vegas but are there other shows closer to me that are worth attending?

There isn't much. I flew to Toronto a few years ago when BM had a proshow when they rolled out Aura. I will attend the next one in TO so I can meet a few of you.

SW has a couple of PRO shows upcoming in the Chicago area in April.
They also claim that they are very well attended.

When there is a proshow in your area do you attend?

My SW rep says theres a couple local store shows in March and April. I've been to them before but was never really impressed. Nothing like the PDCA. I learn more about new products from this site!
