I ... think it really sucks that it's in Springfield instead of CU.
We all think it sucks, but unfortunately, no hotel is willing to make convention space available at rates the convention can afford. (If memberships had to cost $100 to cover the hotel charge for the function space, and room rates were also $100/night, the con wouldn't be successful.) The hotels don't want an SF con when they can rent all their rooms to rabid high school football parents. And the Chancellor has been knocked down, so things will be even worse in the future, at least until someone gets the bright idea of building some meeting facilities.
