I usually go to the show in Kansas City each January – but I have been to the show in Denver.

Looking at the calendar and map now – - it seems the shows are only a winter thing from January to April.. no fall shows. and they no longer travel West of Kansas City.
no Portland/phoenix/costa mesa/ denver etc.

Anyone heard why nothing west of the Missouri River anymore?

From their site, next to the same map you have displayed but from the home page…

After evaluating all shows we made the tough decision to take a break from the West Coast in 2015. While we share in our West Coast Audience’s disappointment the decision was based on increased costs and lower than expected show performance in 2013 & 2014. We want to keep you informed during our absence so stay tuned for digital updates & special offers from the vendors you’ve grown to love.

Translation…no money to be made going west.

Thanks Travis – -I totally missed that explanation.

Wasn’t sure if the “2016” was a formatting issue, that excluded the fall rounds out west this year still.

The 2014-15 schedule is gone, the prior calendar of shows link at the bottom of the page is dead.
