Summary: If you possibly can, I recommend that you go next year.
The convention was well organized, incredibly so for a first year con. There was a good mix of discussions, classes, and fun social events. There was a great mix of people -- all ages, many different orientations and poly (or non-monogamy) styles, experience levels, etc. Anything I could imagine was there, except that I didn't find any of the really annoying con nerds. That's not a complaint. :-)
It was great to see so many people practicing polyamory successfully, and to hear their stories. It was very cool to contribute to those stories for others to learn and enjoy. And most of all, it was wonderful to be in a space where multiple loves are understood and honored. The acceptance, the feeling of "I'm not the only one" or "we're not the only ones" is very powerful and wonderful. Go somewhere where you can experience this, you will enjoy it and it just might change your life for the better.
