I am interested in attending the 52nd ATA conference this fall in Boston. Unfortunately, I have a conflict of scheduling and won't be able to attend the first couple of days. Is it worthwhile to sign up for just one day and attend on October 28 only? Or will I be missing out on a lot by not being there the first couple of days? Any other tips for a first time attendee? Thank you!

Depends on the schedule for that day Sep 14, 2011

Hi Aida,
Have you checked the schedule of events/sessions for the day you are planning to (potentially) attend? If I were in your position, my decision would be heavily based on the concentration of sessions I was interested in on the particular day, as well as travel cost and time considering how long I would be there. For me personally, unless I was relatively local to the conference, I don't think the hassle and expense of travel would be worthwhile for just one day.
