I would like to know if there is an RP event which I could go to that would
showcase various RP equipment and product demos all in one hall, and at the
same time offer short seminars or discussions on current RP trends and
technology, similar to what Siggraph does for the commercial and movie industry.

If there is such an event, which would be the best for me to go to
considering I am from the Philippines and travel to the USA or Europe is
quite expensive.

Thanks in advance.
