The Convention Center presentation

Was a "rah rah" for the CC.
Notice anything missing from the presentation?
A profit loss statement.........
133 "events"?
With banquets and meetings DOMINATING the schedule? These are 1 day functions typically.
I would venture a guess (since facts are hard to come by) that for ANY 1 day event the CC loses money, as does the city.
And while I applaud the effort of the management team at the CC the fact remains there's an over abundance of CC space nationwide and attendance levels are still mired at levels of 1998 or so - nationwide.
Its no wonder that there's NO HOTEL ROOM SHORTAGE down town.
And THAT'S the reason why hotels aren't in a bidding war to build one. Their market studies probably indicate its not worth the risk.
