I've been going for the last few years, it's really a great time. Not sure if you had a chance to talk to Melody at the hop union booth last week but she organizes it.
Guessing you would be speaking at the 2nd session (if not both), the 1st is pro's and 2nd is homebrewers and new pro's with a party on wed night that overlaps.
They feed you all meals the full days you are there, usually pretty good stuff. Plenty of beer available all the time.
I generally have gone to the 1st session but this year it sold out quickly so I'll be at the 2nd.
