I haven't even seen anything on it this year. Are we talking about the Seattle, or Portland one? Can you post more details for us? Thanks!
I just got the card in the mail, this is the one in Portland at the expo center on 2/20.

Here is a link i found with all the dates:

Looks like the one in Seattle is May 1st.
Well we will keep trying :) Good luck over there, dress warm !
I also got a card from the American Diabetes Association. It is at The Oregon Convention Center not the Expo center, different places. Saturday Feb 20, 2010 9:00am to 4:00pm. The link is www.diabetes.org/oregonexpo. I'm trying to find out what vendors will be there..
ahhh good catch, thanks!
Seattle !!! Date: Saturday, May 1, 2010 , Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Washington State Convention & Trade Center
Address: 800 Convention Place, Seattle, WA 98101, United States
I went last year - it was so crowded you couldn't get up to the displays and forget any samples of food. I won't go again.
I'm going to try to see if I can get some one to go with me. I'd sincerely love to meet just for coffee or tea with any Northwest list members. I have a very nice community area that is private that I can use where I live in downtown Portland (The Pearl District). So if anyone would like to have a meet up please I'd love to host. I feel so lonely at times. I'm especially feeling it now because I'm in a battle with Care Oregon over Byetta for me. They keep denying it even though the doctor says I need it. You can e-mail me at rickyjoe@comcast.net if you'd like to get together.
