This is frightening and disappointing to hear. McCormick does seem to be losing more and more shows, and as an in-booth presenter who makes my livelihood from Chicago's plethora of larger trade shows, I'm honestly a bit worried about keeping Chicago as my base of operations. Clients do fly me to shows around the country/world, to be sure, but generally they'll first hire me for a Chicago show.

And I do hear quite a few complaints about McCormick on the trade show floor, in particular about the strict and confusing union regulations. Is that what has driven shows from Chicago to Vegas? Or does it have more to do with marketing support, as you suggested? I'd love to hear more.
