And this just in...GSA has decided to cancel its April Training Conference in Vegas.

Guys...it's not about VEGAS! It's not about Conferences. It's about arrogant, out-of-touch meeting planners. And, they're gone now.

Stop cancelling meetings. It only hurts the economy.

My friend Meilee Anderson offered this via Facebook:

Wait a minute. Did I do my math correctly? The entire event cost $835,000 for 300 people - which shakes out at right around $2780 per person which paid for roundtrip airfare, 3 plus nights of hotel, meals, keynote speakers, a teambuilding activity and meeting room rental?

Granted, in this economic environment they would've been better off to pick a destination closer to home to cut down on the airfare expense, but is this really such a lavish event?

And those bikes were probably built and donated to a local charity who really appreciated them. I'm just guessing on the bike thing. It just doesn't seem so lavish to me.

Ahhh, Meilee...you're making too much sense.

This is a great post. Very informative. I can see that you put a lot of hard work on your every post that's why I think I'd come here more often. Keep it up!
