John is right...while a good number of UDITOA members are also DITA members, the two groups are not related. UDITOA's fall gathering is a yearly event occurring this coming weekend (at fellow DITA members' Jim and Megan Kopp's "Family Drive-In" in Stephens City, VA). It's open to UDITOA members and non-members alike and is a great way to meet and socialize with other drive-in operators. The DITA meet, on the other hand, which just concluded in Dallas this weekend, leaned more towards education and communication, disseminating all of the latest information on issues affecting drive-in operators (primarily digital projection)...and it was only open to DITA members.

I understand your event went very well , Kudos

For those interested in joining the convention in February as a member or a vendor at the trade show send me an e-mail or contact the UDITOA thru the web site or by phone [I'm not sure if I can post the e-mail and phone number here]

The UDITOA convention usually has 100 plus members each year.
One of the primary events will be the change to Digital cinema and how the Drive-In can make the change.

All of the vendors at the DITA are certanly welcome to join us in February
