Author: Glasgow was available
Subject: Glasgow this year because Washington, DC fell through. The venue booked another event the same week which impacted the available rooms. Managers thought "dance competition" and dismissed the numbers, sad to say. Coordinators couldn't get enough additional rooms at the last minute in other hotels.

Either that - or cancel Worlds.

That's what it came down to.

It was the near-sighted managers at the main hotel in DC who did this to the organization. It was not about finding another costly venue for others to travel to - but more about providing a venue that (in the past) had accommodated the event and could do similarly this year - At the Last minute (booking/reservation-wise, two years ago).

Before knocking something, find out the reasons why.

  • Wow. I'm sorry to disappoint you, but their venue choices are not a conspiracy. It's hard to find venues that can accomodate our needs and for the price that we need, with enough neighboring hotels. (NT) -- it's not all about you, 08:38:41 02/26/18 Mon
  • It's a sign of the times and of parenting these days. Look at the excuses above about the leotards and how some actually excuse breaking rules. Sadly, for some, it is all about them and forget about anyone else in this; just as long as they get their own way. (NT) -- ..., 13:54:40 02/26/18 Mon
