Arizona was chosen because it falls under the west region and it was their "turn" to host it this year. It was between Arizona and San Diego...San Jose would've been distant third. Other western cities were LA and San Francisco. They voted on Arizona because like Jonadona said, they finally were mature enough from an organizational perspective to host it there.AssyrianBookTa said:Rum rum it was chosen during convention and not years before to schedule a good hotel,plan events. It's the same way they choose Arizona.
So next year, the East Region, they voted on Detroit. Probably because it's the easiest one to find a cheap hotel and organize easier as well.
