^seems like a lot of the suggested topics on here fall in that category.  I would encourage folks to think more broadly about a repair conference than forum issues.

I think most people will be drawn to this conference as a way to connect with peers and share information about the business of running a repair shop in lieu of CTIA---so anything that is discussed with a margarita in hand is valid.
