>I was at the ADA expo in Boston last year. Whether it is worth the $10 depends on what you expect to get from it. (Also: The local papers had coupons for a couple of dollars off of the admission price.) All of the meter and pump companies had display booths as did many other companies with diabetes related products. It is a good way to get a hands-on look at all of them and be able to ask the reps any questions you might have about their products. Warning: the pump and meter booths were the most crowded. I was amazed to see how many people stood in line to have a free blood sugar test!
There were speakers on a variety of topics, but I suspect you would find them all much too basic as they really were covering beginner type info.
Also, there are lots of give-aways....everthing from pens and post-its to samples of skin care products and sugar-free cough meds and candies. I came home with a shopping bag full of stuff.
It's kind of neat to see lots of people walking around with pumps. A few non-pumpers asked me about pumping, so it was a great opportunity to educate other people with diabetes about using a pump and to let them know about IP.
