Don't forget Portland, Oregon.
I doubt it will ever come back to Orlando, but it has been in Baltimore twice.
Atlanta, perhaps? 
Kansas City, Cincinnati, Minneapolis?
I'll go wherever it's held.

See you there!  ;)

Now that the laws have been changed in GA, Atlanta may be a possibility.  The prior laws made it prohibited.

Kansas City, Missouri has some wicked awesome liquor laws as does St. Louis, MO. Missouri itself just passed the 'you can pour homebrew at festivals anytime, no one will bother you' law, we have no open container laws either so legally we can wander around the streets (of cities/towns who haven't passed their own open container laws) with beers in our hands. We can also have road soadies in the car as long as the driver isn't drinking at all.

Kansas is a whole 'nother animal. I'm currently illegally serving homebrew to my fiance because he isn't yet part of my "immediate family".  :o

Where's NHC '15 going to be held?

I'm going to the ADI conference in Seattle in April, so Grand Rapids is not going to happen for me.

If you are going to be in Seattle in April, there is a bunch of us who will be up here, maybe we can get together and share some beers. Maybe we can even get Denny to drive up.

Keep me informed.  It would make a good excuse to visit my brother up there.

Austin would be great, laid back vibe and great craft beer scene. Houston would be good as well, urban and multi-cultural with a huge convention center right downtown. Both within driving distance as well  ;)
I'm only here for the beer....

I like this a lot.  I hope it happens!

The D in ADI does not stand for beer, but yes a get together sounds like a fine idea!

BTW, NHC-wise, Honolulu has a very nice convention center with plenty of hotels nearby.

I'd be up for that.

There are so many places it would be awesome to have the conference.  I'd like to see one in basically any place I have never been to.  Too bad I don't get to pick. :)  I'm in no matter where it goes though.
