Default Non techie travelling solo from UK - is it worth it?

Like the OP I have been invited courtesy of our UK carrier/RIM. I would also be staying in the Bonnet Creek hotel. As I do not deal with the BES or technical side at all, a whole week away from the office is a bit tough, & I may need to take part of the time offf work as holiday. But it does seem like a good opportunity for networking with other businesses that will be in attendance from the UK and elsewhere.

As a Blackberry user (with an enjoyment of gadgets generally) is this worth giving up holiday time to go to? The flight and hotel is paid for and I am quite gregarious so I kind of think why not, and that I will have a good time as well as potentially meeting some decent people. Just seems a long way to go for 4 days of seminars I may not enjoy and 4 nights in a hotel room on my own (worse case scenario!). Also how "out of the way" is Bonnett Creek from everything else, any clues?

Cheers for any thoughts.
