It's not a question, it's entered under the Income tab, then onto Self employment, this amount would be entered under Business Expense then "Other Expenses".  It asks on that page did you have any other expenses? This also includes convention expenses. If the convention fees include the cost of food, beverages or entertainment, and these do not appear separately on your bill, you must subtract $50 per day from the total convention fee. You can deduct the daily $50 amount as a meal and entertainment expense, to which the 50% limit applies.

Remember: Keep a detailed record of any expenses claimed in case the CRA requests them later.

Thanks for your reply, Lise. However, in the section you mention, under "Guide me," it says this:

Business Travel Expenses Guide Me
Did you travel out of town for business? This includes travel for:
Sales calls
Professional training
Meetings with employees in other locations
Meetings with clients at their office
Site inspections
Equipment maintenance

**Do not include travel to a convention. You'll claim this later in the interview.**

Therefore this doesn't seem to be the correct place to enter my convention travel expenses. What could the "later in the interview" section be? I've been all through and not found anything that looks correct.
