Yes, to me our venue choices seem to miss the obvious:
The use of central locations (Hub Airports) such as Chicago, Denver,
and Dallas. Hub airports provide one hop flight service for most members
in the US and even many of our international collegues. This saves time

Thank you for finding a space for us to meet in September.
I do have few suggestions for future. In cases where you can't secure
primary destination then your should consider a location where most
(N. Cal the home of UC Berkeley, Stanford, etc) or a central location
(like Denver) all with direct flight from every major city.
A central location is very desirable when you have to travel with no
food or water.

The September Interim will be held in Knoxville, TN. We were unable to
a suitable venue in eastern Canada, since it is high season there and
meeting requirements are challenging to many hotels.
Knoxville is the home of the University of Tennessee and is located
Great Smokey Mountains. IEEE 802.3 will be the meeting host and a
fee will be collected on-site.
