What are the largest (in terms of industry/publisher presence) gaming cons in the USA? RPGs in particular of course, but other games (board, card, etc) are good too. Especially around Florida. I've never been to one and thought it might be fun.

I just got back from a games convention (Conquest, in Melbourne Australia). I played in three tabletop RPGs, and in not one did anyone roll a die. Running tabletops as a freeform improvisation seems to be pretty popular here, and I am wondering what others' experiences are?
