Vegas, baby! Cheap flights and rooms for everyone! Any gaming cons there now?

I could second this, cheap flights and rooms. This would be a good local.

while vegas sounds like a lot of fun and I would try to go myself, it would be very hard on the build team and Jeff to get things set up.
*mental note* always listen to Jeff

Basically the entire town is unionized (except for the Frontier if it still exists). Doing anything in Vegas without a lot of "grease" is just not going to happen.
A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.

I heard horror stories from past conventioneers there - convention center employees would approach exhibitors carrying a bag or a sign, and offer help: "let me give you a hand." Then you'd get a bill.

Also, there were pretty restrictive rules about the heaviest thing that a non-union member could carry through the convention center - 30 pounds or so, with no ability to use a wheeled device like a dolly. If you were seen in violation of these rules you would be prohibited from proceeding until the convention center staff could help you (for a fee).
