Do you keep your System/21 package up to the latest PTF and SP levels...? Do you have any intention of going forward with the next version...? Do you belong to a users group...? Would you like to ...? Would you find any benefit from networking with other System/21 users...? Do you have any questions you don't have answers for...? Are you on maintenance...? If you answered yes to one or more of the above then I think it's a good idea to attend... It might be difficult to make a strong business case for the cost (not to mention the perception that your going to play in Disney World...) but not all things can be measured in simple dollars and cents... The benefits of participation can be intangible as well as tangible... A few days out of the office might be good for your own mental health too, but that does not fit neatly into a business case either... If you haven't gone to one yet, go for it... I went to Vegas and I went to Orlando last year... Besides the valuable learning that was done we also had a really great time... I'm doubtful that my company will foot the bill for me to attend this year, and I'm disappointed about that... So if you do decide to go, enjoy yourself...
