But I'd like us to keep Atlantic City in the back of our minds, too ... if the first one is a success, we can hold the second one in AC. Each city could host every other year, maybe do one every six months if it proves popular enough and there's sufficient draw.
I'm not big on gambling either. I play about $20 a month on MegaMillions and Powerball lotteries, and sometimes drop into a casino and spend $10 on penny and nickel slots in order to kill an hour or so to sober up after a night out partying.I personally have a $40 loss limit if I gamble, and quit if I'm up significantly, so I'm usually not playing for long. I live close, so I'd drive up there for sure!
But even without gambling, both Vegas and AC offer a lot of tourist attractions and things to do. I, for one, would love to catch some of the live performances, especially Cirque du Solei.

thats a great idea ide love to but cant get to Vegas.
I work for a major knife company and one of my reponsibilities is coordinating shipments to trade shows worldwide. I don't want to be a downer but these events can be extremely expensive to organize and execute. Hall rentals, freight, exhibition companies and drayage to and from the show can be many thousands of dollars per exhibitor. Judging from what I have seen on B&B there would be crossover with the attendees of many of the major knife and outdoor products trade shows. It may be possible to piggyback onto an existing show in Vegas or elsewhere. The BLADE show in Atlanta might be worth a look.
Can't make it out to Vegas but if you think of having anything near the Boston or Providence area I would definitely make it.
Jim: Sure, Ouch. Sounds like fun. Should we invite anyone else?
Ouch: How 'bout Srock?
Jim: Yeah, he's a solid mo'fo'. Hey Srock, you in for Vegas?
Srock: Hoo-yeah! Anyone else coming?
Ouch: It's you, me, and Jim-er-roonie so far.
Srock: that's all we need ... so long as we don't have that Blackfoot character ...
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.

Wish the event all the success in the world however I do not believe I will attend. Vegas is too far for me to travel as a vendor with product to sell. Make sure you hit O'Sheas as it is a blast and on the cheap too.

Austin or Dallas could work for some of these shows, its centrally located in the states. We have Enchante here in Austin and I think it would be easy to get Charles to set up a booth.
I for one look forward to hearing more about this.
