CFA Conferences

Has anyone attended any of these? I was thinking about attending the Private Client Wealth Management conference in Atlanta, US in April, but wondered if there was any feedback on any of these conferences. They are not often so close in proximity to me. I am starting an investment advisory firm and would love to be exposed to new ideas, etc. but need also to be mindful of how many and what types of expenses I incur. JD, CFA (finally!)
