I heartily recommend involvement with this trade mission. Especially with TGS aiming to make 2010 a better event compared to last years dismal 2009 showing,

TGS pass costs about $10 for the two business days. If people have never been before "maybe" this would help them acclimate, but the price seems really high to not include hotel or airfare or something other than a show pass and a meeting at an embassy.

I'm a big fan of TGS and recommend everyone go at least once!
