    I'm getting ready to book my trip to the SIMA show in Providence this year. I'm just curious who all is planning on attending?

    This is Brian with SIMA, just wanted to let you know that the price for coming to the show is within the industry standards for like-sized symposiums/events of this nature. Its more expensive than a concert, yes. However, the money you pay gets you access to the trade show for 2 days, and access to all educational sessions at the show for 3 days, plus some special events, including a pretty good amount of food and even some free beers/drinks. In 6 years I have never had any person ask for a refund for the show due to them strongly feeling the money they paid was higher than the value...in fact, our show fees have not increased significantly in many years, 5 or 6 years ago attendees were still paying the same basic rate they are now, and the quality of the show has only gone up. The exhibitors and sponsors of the show are the folks who really bear the brunt of the cost of it!

    There are some ways you can save money on your registration as well, check out this page:
