Supposed to be Cleveland in '09 and Chicago on '10, but there are rumours of another venue, probably for '10.
It'll come down to whatever makes the most money for the promoters.

I've heard before that it is actually the bigger dealers that vote on what city the Nationals is gonna be held at, is this true? If not, does anyone know how it is decided on?

I heard Anaheim in '09 and I just read an article about Baltimore as a possibility for '10.

Cleveland is definite for 2009. There is supposed to be a vote for the possibilty of Baltimore for 2010. The short version is that dealers wanted an east coast venue. The Baltimore Convention Center was renovated & enlarged a few years ago, so is now about 300,000 sq ft. (not the usual 400,000 sq ft.). So, I've heard that if it gets the vote for 2010, there might be 25% less dealers/booths.

I'm not sure why they haven't mentioned the Washington, DC as a potential location. The Washington, DC convention center, which was built 2 or 3 years ago, is absolutely enormous. Add to the fact that the baseball team has a brand new stadium.

Maybe they should try other cities, too.

I'd guess that for financial reasons, NYC wouldn't work; the difference in cost of renting the Javits Center vs the other venues being discussed is probably significant. Additionally, it would be probably much more expensive for the dealers to rent hotel rooms in NYC.

I vote for Atlantic City, NJ. Of course, I live in NJ so my commute would be about 2 hours!

Huge, non-union convention center, lots of cheap hotels, easy access, lots of extra-curriculars to both occupy the kiddies and wives as well as "entertain" the unattached men...what's not to like.

Although I love Vegas, I suspect the dealers would NOT want to share any $$$ with the Casinos.
