Conventions and Trade Shows

I am always reading about different conventions around the country.
Gnomedex, CES, LinuxWorld, MacWorld, DEF CON, COMDEX..etc.. Even Star
Trek Conventions all over the place.

WE HAVE NOTHING HERE!!  We are in a technology void! I remember in the
fall of 1994 or 1995 there was a Star Trek convention at our Marina
Civic Center. That was the only time I ever saw anything like that
here. Granted the West Coast is the hub of technology in this country.
But we have convention centers here and the Civic Center. Plus we are
on the beach. If there is any one that a geek needs, it is sun!! A tan.
Hell even a burn would improve the pigment of the pasty faced geeks
that these conventions have been know to be packed full of. 

I think that the people that arrange these things would love the
opportunity to come to the beach and have their conventions here. Other
than the heat(which is sometimes unbearable), this is a great place.

Panama City Beach is very much a small town. Larger conventions don't just show up in places because people think it would be good for the local area. We should love Panama City Beach for what it is. It will slowly grow and mature naturally over time.
