I plan on going to the event, but I won't pay $100 to see a seminar. To be honest I would probably balk at 1/4 of that price. I want to support these builders and I am very interested in what they have to say, but for $100 I expect to get certified in something.

I think the guys should be compensated for presenting, and to some extent I would imagine they will be through future comissions alone, but the price is to high for me.

If I was looking at buying a custom bike and the seminar might help me to make a better purchase on a $3000 frame, then I would do it.

The $100 covers three days admission to the show ($25) and all of the seminars being presented (11 over 2 days). Doesn't seem too unreasonable to me, if you're interested in what the speakers have to say.

Oops! I don't think $100 for all the seminars is unreasonable at all. I misread the initial post and the last time I looked at the show's page there was no seminar schedule or prices posted.

It may sound like an about face, but $10 or so per seminar is a good deal, these guys have to prepare their presentations and they deserve to be compensated.
