2012 conventions?

Hello, internet! I have a question for you.

I’m looking to travel to more comic conventions in 2012, to do that whole self-promotional thing. Ideially I’d like to get to some conventions I’ve never been to. So what conventions do you recommend? I’d love to hear the perspective of both fans and industry professionals. Heck, I’d really love to get invited somewhere as a guest, but don’t feel pressured, internet.
