Your points are good—so why hold an expensive convention in California? Hold it in a USPS warehouse somewhere in the middle of the country, thus making it cheaper and easier for everyone to get there.
Hold it in Topeka.
-——so why hold an expensive convention in California?-——
I of course don’t know but would guess the meetings are moved around. East Coast last year, west coast this year.
I would also guess they got a good price from the host relative to other hosts there about.
Topeka would probably less expensive however.
