Doesn't this sound awesome?

There are not enough U2 fans in my daily world, but I feel that even an hour spent in one of these sessions would give me my fix for the next four years or so...

(P.S. didn't know if this should have gone in news and rumors or meet ups...feel free to move, mods).

That's a lot to choose from. I'm going to the conference so I'm now finally curious about a lot of these presentations.

I'm seriously considering it.  Our family has a heavy saving philosophy for events (and U2 tours) just like this.  It's a bit a ride from the west coast though!  ;)

I really love U2 but jeez......a conference? I guess I haven't reached that level of super duper fandom yet.

It's in Cleveland the last weekend in April.
The last one was a lot of fun, even for a newbie who didn't know anyone yet, and who probably made herself sound foolish more than anything else ::)

Totally looking forward to this one (which is waay closer to my house than last time)!
Plus, the rock hall is still showing U23D, right? ;D
And best of all I'll get to meet up w forum friends this time (instead of annoying mr jab by dragging him along like last time :D )

It's in CLEVELAND!!! That's where I live, folks! Hopefully I will have enough time then (wedding coming in July) to attend. And, also, I toy with having a BBQ at my house for people from the forum. ;)

Wow. I just read that list. I think I could almost have presented at the conference the sermon I wrote when I lead a U2 service at my church. My sermon was "Spiritual Journeys Through The Music of U2." I posted the words on my blog.

Everyone at work is pushing me to take the time off (it's a crazy week at school and students who I've had for four years are presenting their senior theses). So maybe the only one who needs convincing is husband...he'll have to stay home and take care of the pets!

^_^ I can actually relate. I love U2 but I'm not sure I would want to spend time at a conference discussing them. It's much more fun to congregate with fans at shows, at least to me. More power to those of you going though!:)

Does anyone know what the registration fee may be?  Or perhaps what it was last time around?  I'd just a baseline.  Husband's latest threat is, "What if the registration fee is like $2000!"  ;)

I wonder what U2 thinks about fans who attend U2 conferences?  ???
