In March, we are sending several members of the product team to lovely Orlando to speak at the ASP.NET Connections conference.  DevConnections consistently puts on one of most educational and entertaining regional shows and provides great access directly to industry experts as well as Microsoft experts.  I know I always learn a lot and have a great time at the connections shows - I definitely reccommend checking it out.  You can learn more at http://www.devconnections.com/
