Chicago Tribune - "Chicago loses car car expo to Vegas". This car care expo isn't the largest event to come to Chicago, but it is estimated that it would generate about $8.5M in revenue for the area. You would think that this revenue would be welcomed by any city during these economic times. However, the money is now going to be spent in Vegas, where the conference has been located for a number of years. The reason? Booth vendors bring electronics and other items to the expo to help them enhance their sales points. As you can imagine, most of these vendors want to employ their own people to set up the equipment, and have probably trained people to set up the equipment to their liking. This all sounds reasonable. The problem is that the vendors are not allowed to choose who sets up their equipment in their own booths for the Chicago expo. Keep in mind that the Illinois state legislature passed a law that would have allowed these vendors to employ people of their choice, but a federal court struck down the law. In effect, the federal court suggested that two unions, the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters and the Teamsters Local #727 should have been allowed to negotiate any changes. Six major trade shows have now filed statements suggesting that they are also considering pulling out from Chicago. The Chicago area stands to lose millions of dollars annually until this is resolved.
