To give you a ballpark figure, the Hilton's conference rate is around
$132 a night. Find out what the federal per diem amount is for meals in
Minneapolis; there's actually a Web site with those figures for cities
all over the world. The registration and add-ons for workshops, tours,
or banquets (which can stretch your per diem) will run you as much as
$200. I sign up for as many workshops as possible.
You'll want to budget some personal funds to buy goodies from the
vendors, go out to eat, meet us for drinks...
