In regards to moving, I believe as above that there are lot of questions related to cost and other issues that need to be answered for both the attendees and the vendors.

1. Will the hotels in the area limit the amount of individuals to a room? There are still some groups that attend Historicon that cram people into a few rooms. The host allows this were as other Hotels near convention sites limit the number of people in a room, with stiff plentalites for those that don't follow the rules.

2. Will flea market and vendors be in the same room? As a vendor this has nothing to do with the issue of vendor verse flea market. It has to do with the issue that if you are selling something most conventions that require a state license and the collection of a state sales tax won't see the difference between the two types of vendors – regular vendors and flea market vendors. This may require the two to share the same room, reflecting some radical changes for both groups.

3. What will cost for parking and can you park trucks in the area? Will Unions force both vendors and those putting on games to pay for loading and unloading of their vehicles?

4. What will the cost of admission be for added the cost in venue? Added cost for Hotel rooms?

5. What direction is the best for the show to maxize attendance? East, north, south or west?

I quess, my question is what does the Host offer now in the package that would have to be paid for if the convention is moved and what does that translate in cost for everyone involved? I am not opposed to moving the convention if the move is reasonable and doesn't drive the cost up beyond what is practical for both attendees and vendors.

The three simultaneous "we should move Historicon" threads seem to beg for a Poll, don't you think? Since there are so many possible permutations of the Whys and Wherefores, I'd suggest keeping the possible answers to only: yes, no, not sure.
