I have not been to the MidWest Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati, but my wife has mentioned going for the last few years. We/[she] have been recently disappointed with the local (Indianapolis – IAHE). I have heard that they have great speakers and a HUGE Exhibit Hall. Even though it is further away, it appears to be very AFFORDABLE REGISTRATION. Plus, it could be a mini-vacation, away from home (bonus for the Mrs.).
