I've been to both the "WM Live" events in London and one "Whiskies of the World" Expo in San Francisco. At the end of the month I'll attend the "Malt Whisky Festival" in The Hague for the first time.
As to whether they're worth it, for me they obviously are! These kind of events give you the opportunity to taste whiskies you might otherwise never get a taste of, meet distillers, whisky writers and, of course, likeminded enthusiasts.
I've tremendously enjoyed the events I've been to so far and to me they've been worth every cent/penny of the entrance fee many times over!

just to say that this year was the first that time we have exhibited and wow ! The first was whisky live, we visited San Francisco but felt there were too many people and had to queue even for a nibble, Chicago & New York were also brill and now looking forward to exhibiting in the Hague (hope to meet you Lex ) Apart from being a business malts are also my hobby and to get so many malt lovers in the one place at the one time is a fantastic buzz.
I'm sure the exhibition is worth my time and attention too.. Last year I first found out about the Whisky festival in The Hague.. Heard about it in the weekend it was talkig place, so it was to late to attend...
Lucky coincidence was I heard it at the Glenkinchie distillery in our "Fall Scotland brake" we take each year, so it did not hurt too much to miss on the occasion!
