ICES convention

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I have only been decorating for about a year now but eventually want to open a bakery. I just came across information about the ICES Convention. I live about a hour away from New Orleans where this years convention is to be held. My questions are: do you think it would be a good idea for a newbee like me to attend? Also, if you have attended before what did you think? Any feedback would be greatly appericated. icon_smile.gif

I live in Louisiana too but the cost for hotel rooms in New Orleans is just ridiculous ... I'm hoping the next convention would be in an area that isn't as expensive ... I think it would be wonderful for anyone to go to jpdesserts .. newbie or otherwise icon_smile.gif

Yes, I think you should go, there are always lots of workshops going on that you can pick something up from.

yes you should go!!! if you live that close and dont go....we are going to have to hurt you (hahaha) i would love to go, but live too far away. even if your a newbi, you'll learn so much!!!!!!!! stuff that will probably blow your mind, but at least you can have an idea of how far you can go with this...decorating stuff.

I want to say I think it's in the Dallas area.. not sure though .. but it'd be fun to all try to stay at the same hotel.. I'm saving my money now!! I'll have my lil nest egg all ready for the trip!! Look out Dallas or wherever it's going to be in Texas... we Louisianian's are on the way!!! lol

I am a newbie and will be going - can't wait! They even have a 'first timers' workshop the first day, to sort of orient you.

Only regret is that some of the great demos were already full by the time I signed up. I'll take my chance with the walkup tickets though.

My poor DH - he really thinks we're going on a vacation..............
