With an official decision expected from Advanstar in weeks, Licensing.biz is inviting its readers to tell us what you think of the possibility of Licensing International moving from New York to Las Vegas in 2009.

LIMA president Charles Riotto told Licensing.biz last Friday that "both venues have their advantages and it is a matter of deciding which makes the most sense for the greater majority".

We want to hear what you think.

What advantages do you think Las Vegas has over the Jacob Javits in New York and vice versa? Is the bigger venue needed?

Or do you believe that the Javits is just the right size for the licensing business? And what about the British contingent - is Vegas worth the extra flight time?

Let us know what you think by submitting a comment using the form below.
