The First Annual Financial Blogger Conference

Okay, so who has heard of the First Annual Financial Blogger Conference being held in Chicago this year? I just heard about it a few weeks ago on Twitter. With so many other blogger conferences happening, I’m surprised a financial conference has taken this long to take shape!

The agenda looks pretty decent, but I’d be interested in seeing who the speakers will be. Part of me really wants to consider going, but another part of me is dealing with the cost associated with a trip like this. Ballpark cost for me is probably going to be about $1,000, including flight, hotel and food. Perhaps it might be better to go next year, when the conference is a little more established.

DETAILS:
Who:
Financial bloggers, financial professionals, columnist, authors, financial companies, new media types.
What: A two or three day conference designed to bring together the best of the personal finance community so that we can network and learn.
When: TBD (aiming for August or October 2011)
Where: Chicago

Is anyone thinking about going to this?
