I completely understand your point.
Think of this the other way around: We'd have more real estate, similar to what the fellas do w/ the LA and NYC meets - more akin to CanJam at RMAF.
So you'll have more space between tables/exhibits - allowing for a more conducive environment for open-back cans and such.
PLUS: This is a ballroom that is being constructed where the Hilton's Spa used to be (it was third-party owned - and the owners recently retired, so they
want to build it into a ballroom) - so the space is also specifically designed to be a bit away from the traffic!!
The two things we had working against us at The Headphonium were the doors always had to be open (and with only 2,000 square feet, we had a helluva
noise-floor) and the actual limitation of space.
We may not have to deal with that next year! I say MAY because I'm still not sure if I'm going to be working on The Headphonium next year.
I LOVE CanJam at RMAF - and I'm on the RMAF team, so I may decide to focus all my efforts there and where I'm moving: The Bay Area.
BUT - I wanna do a walk-thru and see what we got!
Thanks again to ALL who helped me this year.
I appreciate it more than words can express.
