For those on this board who have not been this will be an even bigger "deal" than last year's. In fact these have grown dramatically since the first one I went to in the Reagon building. I would not be surprised if there were 15 or 20,000 people in the new convention center at any given moment. Overall, this is the biggest and most interesting wine exhibit/show/extravganze of the entire year in the greater D. C. area with over 240 wineries pouring close to 1,000 different wines. It is definitely worth going to.
Last year the Wine Enthusiast sold Eurocaves at their lowest price of the year with a show "special" that was about 15% lower (shipping was also included) than the best sale price in their catalogue. In fact this price was so good (about $2000 or so) there was a line 20-30 minutes long to buy them! It was unbelievable!
