As being relatvely new to astronmomy, I was wondering if the are other conferences, like NEAF, in the other parts of the U.S.. As I am from the midwest, NEAF seems to be alittle to far for me to go, although I am going to go someday.

One option:

 

The North Central Region of the Astronomical League has their regional convention in Moline IL on the weekend of May 3.

 

Looks like an interesting convention - http://www.popularas....org/ncral-2019

There really isn't another event like NEAF.  It is really the only Equipment Oriented event where a visitor can see the majority of manufacturers, suppliers, vendors, etc. 

There are however many regional one day or multiple day events which have talks of all types. 

This weekend I'm going Saturday to  Tristar in Greensboro NC which is the second regional meeting I will have attended in as many months, the other being Bobfest.
