Exactly, the market at work.

I remember in the recent 2010-2011 when times weren't so good. Prices dropped. I stayed at Mandalay Bay on a weekend night for $85 all in including a $50 room service credit. They adjusted back then, they're doing the same now.

If you were from Boston, NYC, Seattle etc, where would you want to go to a convention, Las Vegas or Chicago? For as much as people spout gloom and doom, Vegas will never die.

Probably because they are a Chicago area based organization??

As I noted before, McCormack is the largest convention center in the US so it can handle those huge conventions. Further, Chicago is a central location for everyone in the US making travel easier. But it's expensive for the exhibitors.

The large show in my industry was in April and used to be in Chicago every other year with alternate locations the other years - New Orleans, Orlando, Atlanta, Las Vegas - to cut down on the exhibitor cost.

Spring or Fall - Chicago every single time. But that's just me.
