You will be entertained, engaged, and well-fed, all in the spirit of conference camaraderie and general rabble-rousing. Your brains will be undoubtedly full from the conference, but save a little room for a slice of insight and knowledge on how your views compare with those of your peers. You will leave feeling invigorated, merry, and harmoniously connected to your fellow conference-goers.
