Missed that other convention in Orlando? Or maybe you just prefer a slightly smaller venue that is less overwhelming for the children and gives you easier access to product vendors and speakers?
That's the great thing about H.E.R.I. -- beginning Friday, July 15 and lasting through Saturday, July 16, at the Prime Osborne Center in downtown Jacksonville. It's a terrific alternative for Floridians for its great variety of shopping and information, but comes in a slightly more compact format.
Check out this announcement just in from H.E.R.I. to read more about this year's exciting event:
