We're putting updates on Facebook with news about new manufacturers, exhibitors and presenters. Like Canoecopia on Facebook and keep in touch with the latest news...and be sure to follow us, not just like us (or FB will hide stuff from you). Anyway, the link's over to the left. Look for the giant F.
In addition to our annual favorites, we've received a ton of proposals from new speakers! The schedule's put together and we'll post it on the website next week. Some amazing new presentations (as well as a new guest Aluminum Chef!).
