Someone mentioned the idea of using the revamped fair grounds to host part of the convention as well back a few pages ago. While it is not in the exact same location, arguably it provides a better location to showcase outdoor stuff since there would be large open space outside, venues inside, and even a river close by for certain water demonstrations, not to mention an ampitheatre if they wanted to do group presentations. I like the idea...not sure if the convention would or not though.
