The organizer of the conference, Michael Haskins, is an excellent mystery writer from our southern most point and has done a phenomenal job putting together the conference in one of the most entertaining and unusual venues in the country.
There is also a law enforcement panel featuring the big hitters in the field. I am moderating the panel and look forward to it. Incredibly, it is the first time I've ever moderated a panel featuring real cops.
Even the hotel is ridiculously cheap for that area coming in at under $200 a night, so I would expect to see some people get off their asses and sign up for this thing soon. The conference is starting to fill up, but I would definitely recommend it over some of the larger, busier conferences where you can get lost in the shuffle.
If you have any questions you can contact Mr. Haskins directly, or the conference or even drop me an e-mail and I will forward it. Hope to see you there.
