I will too..but then again denny and i both have an excuse.
yeah, i predict there's going to be hella lot of conversations happening in the next month or two to fiugre out what to do in response to the growth.
10 years ago, the conference was in Irving, TX and was a disaster due to a number of issues outside the control of the AHA and the local crew. We had less than 200 people at the conference.
2004 we thought we were pretty styling in Vegas with 700. In 2008, Cincy and it's just shy of 1k felt unreal. Then to make the jump from MN's 1300 to San Diego's 1900.. holy crap. Once we throw in the social packages, ala carte and everything else, i'm sure seattle will be near that too.
One of the problems for us as we stand is we're at that cusp of having to go into much larger conference spaces and that's a risk.
