Consider this paragraph from a recent issue of the American Sociological Association’s newsletter:
[T]he Executive Office was directed to investigate western cities other than San Francisco for 2012 and 2016… At its meeting in February 2009, ASA Council reviewed site reports on Denver, Portland, San Diego, Seattle, and Vancouver. Denver was designated for 2012, and Seattle was chosen for 2016. Contracts with facilities in both cities have now been finalized.
Hmm, places in the West where you can have a big convention… San Francisco, Denver, Portland, San Diego, Seattle, Vancouver… and I suppose Los Angeles is out given how horribly the Anaheim conference is remembered… hmm… I guess there really aren’t any other Western cities with a lot of hotel rooms…
Oh, well, I mean, except for the city with the most hotel rooms and largest convention business in the country.
Can someone explain to me why ASA Vegas is never considered? SWS went there.
