One 5 minute phone call is all it takes to book both the 2020 Nationals and Open in Las Vegas.  How long will they be looking into making that phone call.  As I said before, run the exact same National schedule as they did this year and the 2020 Nationals will be taken care.  That gives them a whole year to "look into" what to do with the 2020 Open.

As a marketing guy, I understand your position.  You're stuck trying to tell us that you have to live with what management does.  Like I said, one 5 minute call solves 2020.  Stay on them.

It might take a bit more than a simple phone call, like a deposit of $$$, no? Which might or might not be readily available.

Many times if a group is a regular user of a facility the don't require an early deposit.  The convention center should have a nice relationship with the USATT.

Whoa! Agreed for Nationals, but has Las Vegas even been confirmed for 2020 US Open?

SERIOUSLY ? 
Do you know probably more than 100s of groups with lot more money & clout use  any smaller convention center, let alone Las Vegas Convention center, which could probably be the busiest in the world ?

Anyway most cool (weatherwise I mean) in the summer Northern states like Alaska or North Dakota or NH, VT, ME etc  may be better venues to host the US Closed in the summer.  You may get cheaper playing venues and the states may give some breaks as they can badly use the business.  

Las Vegas in summer really sucks like 130 degrees.

I know many explained many time why LV is overall better but to run both US Closed  & Open in the same sin city over and over sucks.

At least US Open in December may be OK as it may attract many foreign tourist players who want to gamble or think prostitution is legal in Las Vegas Embarrassed 

The only thing cool for me (about Las Vegas) is to be able to rent Ferraris or Lamborghinis etc and drive on the race track. Are there any other cities that have this ?

This is the more likely scenario, having a relationship means nothing if a deposit isn't on time or payable...convention space isn't a "relationship based commodity", you hold a "space" with money paid in advance - months or sometime years in advance.

*sigh*

I used facilities, big and small for over 20 years.  After a few years I could call the facility a year in advance, reserve my date, and not sign the actual contract until a few weeks prior to my event.  Deposits were rarely required and I paid for the facility the night of the event or the following Monday.

After spending time with mts388 and hearing some of his stories I am convinced that if he was promoting the US Nationals, Vegas would end up paying the USATT to come there.  That man is a promoter.  If only his TT game was as strong.

No, they told us location (Ft. Worth) and dates. No entry blank or online registration, or even a list of events.
