    The tradeshow your Fi is at is probably the same one I was supposed to go to myself but couldn't make. Just so you know, they are more work than fun by a long shot. During the show you are having to mingle and BS with lots of people, then after, there are "Dinners and Parties" which are nothing more than another opportunity to sell and make contacts. by the time you slip out of there, you run head long in the direction of the room and the bed because you are soooo spent. I have been on both sides of those shows and hate it from any angle. My wife can also tell you that I have on occasion forgotten to call her before I went to sleep on a few occasions and it wasn't because I was anything but exhausted.

    Give him a a get out of jail free card this one time but scold him...just know that coming from someone who has to deal with the same BS...it isn't really a free week in vegas...its a nightmare. Most of the people I know that go to those things can only do it for 1-2 days max before they come back and request a vacation...

      Thanks everyone for your kind words and concerns! I talked to Brian at length this early evening and he knows how scared I was. I know he will not do this again.

      I've attended hundreds of trade shows during my career and I know exactly what goes down at the shows. I also understand that when you travel for work you are normally working harder then in the office. I am sympathetic to this, but I do have a line and it was crossed.
