This could get all kinds of deep & meaningful and really does merit the phrase that - "Until you go, you can't understand - and once you have been you can't explain!"
There is the delightful anticipation for the next one, that begins even before leaving the site of the one you are at!
There are the near constant reminders with social media photos and stories.
Even the journey - which for me involves getting through the traffic chaos around the Royal Welsh Show for several years - anyone who knows the disruption that it causes will understand.

So my answers might be;
1 - Catching up with and spending time with great friends
2 - Making new friends
3 - Sharing skills, stories, meals and ideas with a great bunch of people

Keeping in mind that I have only attended the initial 'quieter' days (I don't happily do crowds and noise :)):

1 - catching up with friends
2 - meeting new people from the forum
3 - unofficial skills sharing

1. The near total isolation from the industrial world
2. Around people who value their (& your) privacy, but who will happily share library levels of knowledge if you just ask
3. Attending workshops/ courses and learning skills. (Need to focus more on this one)
3. In Wales
3. I'll think of something else later
