The Lexington Convention center is undergoing major renovations. If we stayed in September this year all of patrons would be required to help hang drywall and we could only book celebrities that were licensed electricians and plumbers.
Seriously though, this was the earliest date we could get because of the ongoing construction. When it is finished we will see what dates work best. The alternatives were to either move to a MUCH smaller venue and limit our crowd to less than half of what we usually get or move the convention completely to another city.
