The Javits center is pricing itself out of the convention market. If anyone here has ever been an exhibitor there, they will know what I mean.
They have really high prices, extremely high paid union laborers that you need 3 of to do anything, and its becoming less of a destination. Compare to Orlando, or New Orleans at much cheaper pricing, and cheap airfare its a matter of time before all conventions start leaving.
Boat, car, motorcyle, and other shows like them that have to be regional will be the only ones left.
