NCDM Coverage Emphasized Location Too Much

Share this article:
I believe your article misrepresents Rosemont, IL, and the potential reasons for lower attendance at this year's NCDM conference.


The article put too much emphasis on the location. In reality, it is only 20 minutes from downtown during non-rush-hour times, a far cry from an hour and easily accessible via public transportation.


Besides, based on my knowledge of the industry and experience, I believe the real reasons are the slow economy and reduced budgets.


Why put something so trivial as the location toward the beginning of this article? It would have been better suited as a by-the-way point at the end of the article, especially since I do not believe that is why most people opted not to attend.


Just my opinion.
