I dunno Mark, I think that may be a little pessimistic. From what I've
seen, too many game companies make too much money at GenCon to just
abandon it.

Also, too many gamers have made the annual commitment needed to trek to
Milwaukee every year for the past n years, and I bet it would be very
to change things now. If Andon were foolish enough to change venues, 
cities, or whatever as a way to cut costs, I think that GenCon would
have to go through a period of "rebuilding" to get attendance back up to
the levels it has seen in the past 5 years.
