When officials in Orlando decided to build a new convention center for the town (which will end up costing a total of $2.8 billion), they told residents that it would attract around 500,000 visitors during its first year. However, the center only attracted a mere 154,317 visitors and had a bad impact on Orlando's economy. Dan Tracy investigated and found that the numbers given by those who run the convention center are only estimates and educated guesses. He also found that it is becoming harder and harder for other cities to compete with Las Vegas, which is the number one convention destination.
