I wiwhs people who do conventions would start setting them in maybe the central northern US or something so people from all over Canada and the US could go to 1 central location. It would be much easier - not to mention fair, rathern than having everyone just head to 1 really out of the way southwestern point of the US which is only convenient for those who live nearby.

While applicable to E3 and the like, I believe the reason BlizzCon takes place in Anaheim is because Blizzard is maybe 10 minutes away, in Irvine, and it's their show. You wouldn't expect them to hold it in Kansas in this case.
