I went on Friday night. It was OK - just another design festival with people showcasing their work. It seemed pretty small and a little dull - I found out about it last minute and also missed out on getting the chance to attend a workshop.
Highlights for me was:
A crew of illustrators called Joining Forces - they had a mural being created over the weekend and a $10 lucky dip to score a cute little illy (where each illustrators has drawn something on it). https://www.facebook.com/JoiningForcesCollective
Old School New School - they had some small workshops to learn about typography or sign writing, looked awesome - if I had known about it earlier I would have signed up. http://newschoolfordesignandtypography.com/
Alice Oehr - she was one of the people that actually spoke to us - most people just sat back and watched you look at their work. http://aliceoehr.com/

I thought it was pretty narrow in reach.
There wasn't really anything to do with publishing — just *Frankie*. It would have been great to see some of the independant publishers/works on display.
No one had done any type-based work — it was all just illustration. Although as mentioned by @miss_spiked there was a stall devoted to a course on typography at a private college.
*Joining Forces* guys were doing some interesting stuff. And some of the only non-digital artwork available.
Hopefully next year it will be a bit more cohesive.

@miss_spiked ::Resource Space looks perfect yet a little expensive.::
It's actually opensource and free. The costs are for service help/support (if you wanted it).
The download is here: http://resourcespace.org/get
You would need to know how to set up a local server (or get IT help).
Have a play on the demo :)
