I have never been invited/requested/applied to any International Convention, other than it happening to be our own convention in New York City where we were already assigned (I think back and maybe this happened two times or so when I was growing up).
Anyway, people here keep commenting about the cost to attend; the inflated airfares, rooms, transportation, etc.
Does anyone have some actual numbers to provide? I realize that the cost of attending a convention in a different country will be affected by some variations in airfare from the departure city but generally how much do these things cost? Are they comparable to a tour from an Expedia, Travelocity or other travel site?
