    I had a great time, as a new, reluctant vegan I found great books and reference materials. I bought 4 books and signed uo for a magazine. It was great fun and I am looking forward to the next one.

    Great exhibitors, great crowd! I have attended most (maybe all) AVN Veg Fests and this venue has a good layout and parking was fine, even though the lot appeared pretty full. The only not great moment was that for the second year in a row someone on the organizer side came in during a speaker's presentation and started talking to the person monitoring the camera. Looking forward to that not happening next year!
