    It is disappointing and frustrating that, year after year, the show never comes within 1000 miles of Denver. I really can’t afford the time and money to fly to California, as it’s the closest location.

    They used to have a show in Phoenix, for which I made the 850 mile drive, but then they decided it wasn’t an important market, and pulled out. I guess Denver isn’t important either.

    Advanstar chooses to ignore virtually the entire center of the U.S. It’s a shame because there are a lot of enthusiasts located here. I looked forward to the show every year, but no more. Sad, the show is a lot of fun.

    Hopefully, they’ll change their minds someday.

    Why does this show ignore not only the 5th largest market in the US (Phoenix), but also the entire Mountain time zone? This means they have shows in 8 metro areas smaller than Phoenix.

    Is it too much to ask to include the entire schedule?
