SOURCE: Uncontrolled black violence & crime leads to Chicago losing major food trade show (FMI Connect) at McCormick Place - will move to another state - Local media attempts to make move unrelated to crime

SOURCE: We are not going to be paying the highest prices in the country, from union hourly wages to Chicago extremely high " downtown entertainment tax" to have our people attacked or robbed!

Chicago has lost one of its bigger trade shows, as the Food Marketing Institute said Wednesday it is pulling the plug on an event that traditionally has drawn thousands of food manufacturers and retailers from around the world to the city.

In announcing its decision to cancel FMI Connect, scheduled for June 2017, FMI President and CEO Leslie Sarasin said the group needed to refocus its event strategy after the trade show "has fallen short of achieving the precise formula necessary for meeting today's industry needs."

This year's show brought 6,500 attendees and 490 exhibitors to Chicago, but attendance was down from past years, said David Fikes, vice president of communications at Arlington, Va.-based FMI.

"It was reflective of the food retail industry going through some massive changes in the last 10 years," Fikes said.

The number of places where food is being sold has expanded in recent years, from supermarkets to megamarkets such as Target and Wal-Mart, pharmacies such as CVS and Walgreens, and online.

"The trade show that was so important to the industry in previous years didn't seem to be as vibrant a place for (our members) to come and conduct business," he said.

Chicago hosted the trade show 24 times from the early 1980s to 2007 before it moved elsewhere. The 2008 show was in Las Vegas. In 2012, organizers announced the show would return to Chicago in 2014. Fikes said the hope was that coming back to Chicago might be the "magic" it needed to draw more attendees. However, it was not to be, Fikes said, although he could not provide figures on how much attendance has declined in recent years.

Should have gone ahead and torn the exhibition hall down and built the Lucas Museum. Then the city would have a half ass excuse why this convention had to look elsewhere for their show.

Who wants to pay for retired City workers and Mobsters working on their second or third pensions?? I know plenty of guys who retired in their late forties and early fifties under old rules now working at McCormick Place. Disgusting you have to know somebody or have some kind of juice/clout to get a job at McPier.

McCormick Place is a horrible convention center, miles from the hotels. The absurd union rules force you to pay $100 to some union thug to plug in a lamp. If you brought anything of value to display and could not carry it out, it was certain to fall off a truck on the way to the UPS depot.

All that, and feral negroes make for a great time.

As a business man and owner of a manufacturing Corp, I would never come to Chicago. Negro crime, corrupt democrats, Highest taxes and fees in the country. Even with Trump, Chicago is too far gone.

I had a booth at the FMI show last year - it was dead as a door nail. McCormick Place is way past it's prime as a convention center. Too far from downtown. It takes forever to get a cab when the shows are over. Hotel rooms downtown are $300+ a night during trade shows. Orlando is the new center for trade shows.
