    The Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas was buzzing with activity and hands were flying everywhere you turned during the week of July 18-23, 2010. More than 23,400 unique visitors from 73 different countries came to Las Vegas for the DeafNation World Conference and Expo (DNWE).

    DeafNation DeafNation World Expo

    You would like your feedback in making this decision.


    I think that I would like to select other cities. Not Las Vegas

    someone told it's over 30,000 to 40,000. Look like they're wrong. Maybe it's 30,000+ when they're not register and wander around out of expo.

    I voted Los Angeles for next DeafNation World Expo host, because of Hollywood, Beach, and Disneyland. I am sure MORE THAN 23,400 people will go to Los Angeles. :)

    OH! We went to LV from last year and it was 117F. I like LV's weather than IL. IL is awful for very high humidity for summer and spring. I got heavy sweat so easy at 85F with very high humidity but we got little sweat from LV so we don't complained. I am happy that LV is very low humidity.

    Got proof? Was there newspaper article about the rapes? You mean it happened at Treasure Island hotel/casino or all within Deaf events in LV during that week? I wouldn't be surprised if Stefan Vaseliescu did. He's got a look of a rapist. :ugh:

    Well, someone told me that World Deaf Expo in 2014 will be taken place in Orlando. I know it's not confirmed yet about the location.

    There are many CON on why would DeafNation be host in other country.

    - Too many here in US cannot attend to other country
    - Will be small amount of people, lack sponsor for deaf
    - Sell equipment aren't mean for North America's outlet compatible

    Stick with DeafNation for here in North American only. I don't mind in Cancun, MEX. :D

    It's cheap on flight ticket for anyone who live on Pacific coast but unfortunately for rest of US. Too expensive. :shock:

    Otherwise, Mexico is much cheap to buy anything.

    Where are your proof? If it were all hearsay, I will not buy this bullshit, period. Joel and I chatted about the next Deaf Nation World Expo for about 30 minutes and he never mentioned anything about Europe. He said it would be most likely somewhere in U.S. and his folks will discuss and make an announcement in a few years' time. Do not get me wrong since Joel and I are old friends.
