The Baltimore Business Journal has revealed that the city’s bid for the 2010 convention has been rejected:
Organizers of the Star Wars Celebration V rejected the city because its convention center doesn’t have enough room, said Tom Noonan, who heads the city tourist bureau. The four-day gathering could have attracted 35,000 visitors and filled 12,000 hotel room nights — a larger impact than any convention the city currently hosts.
The status of bids from Orlando, Chicago or any of the other east coast cities that have been mentioned as candidates remain unknown to us. (via)
