Not sure yet. Hoping to gather information here to make a more informed decission...For one person it is a 3k trip for two 5k...
The better question is...
Will this be an investment in my company or a waste of money listening to a bunch of companies "atta-boy" lectures???? as was the case with FAS...Cyprexx...and the rest.
This appears...on the surface... to be put together by neutral parties...looking to make a buck. 500 bucks for a VIP dinner????

I wont be going.

It might be nice to go party with all you other P&P contractors but thats not the focus of my business and I need to save the cost of that trip for buying my new commercial mower in the spring.

That I do agree with.....
I'm wondering if this would be the forum for vendors on our level to draw the line with...This is our coverage area, this is what we need...
Somehow the "take this or leave it" pricing has to go!!!!!
We have turned down 7 companies in the past three weeks. $40 for wint??? $12 cyd???
My response to them was this...
If that is all you can afford to pay then you need to reconsider calling this area YOUR coverage area.
All of a sudden there are a bunch of "break away" companies covering the entire country and they can not afford to pay a respectible fee for services...
Just not getting it....

Wanna know how much they really care??? Not at all. As PT Barnum once said, There's a sucker born every day" Plenty of uninsured hacks out there to work for the companies who never check. Mid American out of Nebraska case in point. They work for BAC and MCS and NEVER ONCE in the nearly 2 years i did work for them (in the beginning they payed pretty decent and reasonably timely) did they EVER ask for my insurance info. I know 4 other contractors in my state that worked for them that have told me the same thing along with BPWY. While i run a legitimate business, fully insured, proper equipment and with 20 years of construction experience there is always a dozen weekend warriors with no insurance, a pushmower, insufficient pancake air compressor and beater pickup looking to cut my throat to get the work. Then when the property goes REO double the $$$ is spent turning the property around. I can't tell you how many shower valves our plumbers have replaced this year due to inexperienced people doing wints. This is just one example. Problem is once they go REO the banks are not going after the P&P contractors for screwing up!! If the banks would go after these people for every screw up, things would change in short order!!!!

The type of classes they are putting on will only be able to be afforded by the folks that are already knowledgeable in those items.


I don't see this being well attended simply because of the price.

Down around $200 registration for the entire expo plus the cost of rooms........ a lot more folks will show up.
