In light of tonight’s stream I figured I’d start a thread and see who all is going to the pacific bonsai expo? Wanting to make a point to get to meet some other Mirai members in the community. Please let me know who else will be there.
Looking forward to this!
I would love to but I am saving money to buy a house so I can take my bonsai propagation to the next level, I also will be in knoxville and kannapolis this year so probably won’t get out there until 2024 as nationals will be in 2023.
I am driving down and have tickets for both days, but not the banquet…
I am attending as an exhibitor. I am also working on the program and commemorative book projects for PBE. Hope to see many bonsai folks there.
I’m driving down and will be there for Saturday!
I’m so excited for it! It’s going to be my first time attending to something like this!
Is Mirai going as a vendor - I didn’t see Mirai on the vendor list?
They are there, under their full name IBM (International Bonsai Mirai).
jeez - totally missed it - thanks - I have a long way to go (from Toronto) but seriously thinking about it - the podcast on bonsai wire provided some great insight into the event.
Hi it’s Kim. I am going. Doing security Sat and Sun 8-10am
I have been stoked about this all year.
I will be there with a friend, staying at Hyatt house Emeryville, was wondering if we might hitch a ride with someone to the venue Saturday… ?
I plan to drive over from the Hyatt Sat. morning so I have a place to put anything I buy. I may head back to the hotel area for lunch and walk back over for the afternoon.
bit of a trek from Toronto but booked to go - hopefully will see you there.
It would be really great if we could ride over with you Saturday morning…
That will be great. I will have room for up to 4 passengers if others want a ride. I will probably try to leave the hotel just after 8 am to insure I can get a parking spot. That means hanging out at the venue for a bit before the show opens at 9 am.
I would if the tickets weren’t sold out
The best I can do this year is that I pre-ordered the show photo book. Hopefully I can attend the next, if they have one.
Im very excited to go. Its been 15 years since ive been to oakland , Any meeting spots or times?
No meeting times yet but I like the idea of meeting at the bonsai gardens in Oakland.
