From USA Today:
- The National Association of Convenience Stores shifted its Oct. 29-Nov. 1 meeting to Las Vegas on Nov. 15-18. Planners had anticipated 25,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibitors.
â€¢The National Business Aviation Association, which planned for 30,000 attendees, moved the gathering to Orlando on Nov. 9-11. The quick move challenged NBAA, which requires display space for more than 100 aircraft.
It also says that more than 30 groups already have turned to Las Vegas (big surprise, eh), but because fall is a busy time there, too, not all can be accommodated. I wonder if more of the association meetings, which really can't afford to cancel, will instead splinter into a series of smaller meetings that can be held at various cities around the country before the year's end?
