I missed last year's events.  I'm strongly considering coming up for things this year.

 

Anyone who's reading.  I know attendence was low last year, I wasn't there either.  But for whatever its worth... this is an excellent event.  It's very high quality, there are a lot of opportunities for networking, you will learn a lot.  Plus Canada is an amazing country (for those of you who don't live there).  Toronto has a lot to do.

 

I've been three times, and I have never had a bad time.  It's worth the trip.  I don't own FFH, never have, I haven't even attended the meeting.  The pre-FFH stuff is worth it alone.

 

If you want to save there are some hotels in the area that are MUCH cheaper and within walking distance.  There are some great bars and restaurants nearby too.  As some on this board can attest to... I am happy to hit up BarVolo and talk about investing until the place shuts down.

 

For Americans visiting Canada is cheap.  Yes, Toronto has high prices, but your dollar stretches there.  And comparably Toronto costs far less than Chicago or Atlanta.  Hotel rates are on par with what I've paid for places off the highway on the way to Florida for vacation, which is crazy considering the size and importance of Toronto to Canada.

Anyone interested in having a table of (7+1) together at the Benjamin Graham 2018 Value Investing Conference?

 

I currently have 3, need 4 more so that we can get a value price ($562.50 instead of $650). If you are interested in joining as a table, please email me at wilson.lowwy@gmail.com. First come first serve.

 

Looking forward to see everyone at there.
