For What Reason?

In a previous challenge, I asked for a story about what the first Ficly Convention would be like. In THIS challenge, I’d like to know WHY you would or would not attend a Ficly Convention. Any format is welcome, any number of entries.

Too broaden this challenge, entries will also be accepted that deal with other events/holidays. Such as, why do you hate brithdays? What is it about the company bowling parties that makes you keep going?

Be creative – tell it in any style, from whatever perspective you want.
