This review from hotwire.com
gives a rundown on the best cities for bargain-loving travelers&@8212;your attendees, perhaps? And some of the results are a little surprising, at least to me. Here are the top five: Denver, Colo., Greenville-Spartanburg, S.C., Raleigh-Durham, N.C., Knoxville, Tenn., and Tampa-St. Petersburg-Sarasota, Fla. Even L.A. made the top 10.
(Thanks to Gary for the pointer.)
