    Hi Stefan,

    I attended about five years ago and thought it was a good event. George W. Bush showed up as a surprise guest; I'm not a personal fan myself but it was still impressive that the president made an appearance. I was also able to unintentionally make some job connections with other people seated at my table, which was an added benefit.

    I think it's an event worth checking out at least once.

    It is the highest profile event for the Italian-American community. Go if you have a chance. Ciao

    Yes have gone to several. As the previous two response mentioned. It is occasionally attended by Presidents or those running for and the contacts you can make are an added benefit. Good luck!

    Yes, I have attended and really enjoyed it. There were over 2000 attendees and the events were informative and fun. You will also leave with a nice goodie bag.
