Life should NOT be a trip to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an cool and well preserved body, but rather to skid in, chocolate in one hand, beer in the other, body wrecked, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!
it depends on what you are going for if it will be of value. If you are using, or are intending to be using, the Mercury Tools and are looking to find ways of getting the best return for the business from such a significant investment then it is worthwhile.
If you wish to gamble away vast quantities of money, drink beer or get hold of Elton John Tickets - it is worthwhile but possibly not a good use of company Money.
As my current Company and Key Clients are not Mercury Users I could not justify attendance this year but as Vendor conferences go it is fairly good.
