What’s your favorite nonlibrary conference?

Penguin car at BEA

I’m about to leave BEA 2010, which is my new favorite nonlibrary conference of all time. Yes, partially because of all the free books and ARCs you can carry. But really: A conference all about books? Authors, authors, everywhere? A most awesome librarians lunch where I got to hear Adriana Trigiani (who is hysterical), Joshilyn Jackson, Susan Isaacs, and more — and got copies of their newest books? Priceless.

Then, there’s New York. The Strand. The food…

So what’s yours?

I know I haven’t blogged much (OK, at all) lately, but I’ve been thinking a lot about our need to take a lot more from fields outside librarianship in order to evolve — and survive. So, what are your favorite nonlibrary conferences?
