JW Regional conventions scheduled to be held in Rochester NY in August 2019, will instead be held in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
Here is the story:
Looks like the new management of the Rochester arena didn't like playing "hardball" with the JW negotiation team, and just decided to close their doors.
The group is looking at returning to Rochester next summer, Miller said, adding this is "not a cold, hard break. Jeffries said Visit Rochester planned to meet with representatives after their convention to "offer them different solutions other than the arena."
Lotsa luck trying to book the convention in Rochester next year, after screwing the hotels on the "recommended lodging list" out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in bookings this year.
