Why WPPI in only Vegas?

Now I know the likely obvious answer to this.  But makes you wonder why don't they move these shows around like Imaging USA does.  Seems to be it could attract new attendees.  Those who are going to go, are going to go regardless where it's at in the U.S.. 

Well that is the logic I'm telling myself.  

Would you go to WPPI if it was in Dallas or Orlando for example?

Well, what do you think?

Vegas has tons of hotel rooms, there's tons to do, the hotels can probably offer good rates because they know people will spend money on other things, the city isn't too large, and very concentrated, and people apparently like going to Vegas.I don't, but whatever.

If you are a member of PPA, then you'd probably have seen a recent thread on their forum discussing locations for Imaging, and it being pointed out that the farther west they hold it, the lower the attendance is. SA was the lowest ever, apparently. It will be in Grapevine in 2021 (which I'm happy about) but Atlanta and Nashville are apparently the popular places.

Pretty much the simple truth of it, Vegas has much to offer visitors that will persuade them to come.  The number of hotels per mile is high, and hotels are are always competing on price most of the time.  So now you have entertainment, lots of food, cheap logging in swanky places.  So even with a subpar interest in an Expo, you'll have guest coming just for the amenities and chance to get away to America's Sin City playground.
