  1. Do we know if they'll do the masterclass again next year? I would definitely want to attend, but with funds being a little short this year, I can't decide if I should splurge and just go, or wait until next year (also considering I live in WI so would prefer to go to a Chicago one)….any help? thank you very much!

  2. Hello – Of course we can't be sure, but I would guess that there will be another course next year as well. They do try and mix up the venues as well, but again, we can't be sure where next year's will be either. For the U.S., 2013 is of course New York and San Diego – 2012 was Seattle, Chicago and Miami – 2011 was in Austin and New York. 2009 & 2010 were only held in Canada. Hope this history helps a bit too.
