Rust Belt Recovery Plan?

Rust Belt Recovery Plan?

In times of economic hardship, it looks bad to hold a government convention in Las Vegas, Orlando, or Reno. Government meeting coordinators got the word to pass up resort destinations for less luxurious, low-cost travel travel hubs like Chicago, Denver, Portland, St. Louis, Washington DC, Milwaukee, or Phoenix.

Attention Rust Belt cities. Got big, empty factories, folding chairs, an airport, and no beaches or golf to speak of? Get your Convention and Visitors Bureau on the phone to the Feds now!
