Action at the hospitality suite

The guy in the white shirt, standing in the doorway — what's he thinking?

A convention idea for Spokane

How about a national gathering of people who, as infants, played the role of the baby Jesus in long-ago Christmas pageants?

There could be seminars, speakers and much social time.

“When did you portray the Christ child?”

“It was way back in 1955. I went for restrained and understated. From what I understand, my performance was well received.”

Why Spokane?

Why not.

“How did you deal with your Wise Men?”

“I sent them away with a subtle Don Corleone-like wave of my hand.” 

Conventional wisdom

Spokane makes a considerable effort to attract conventions to this city.

You are no doubt familiar with the economic benefits and what have you.

But here are a few questions.

Have you ever attended a convention in another city?

How much money did you spend while there?

On what basis did you evaluate the host city?

Would you go back there if the opportunity arose?
