That's why Convention Center Authority Director Jim Rooney was excited to announce that the convention will make Boston its home for at least the next ten years.

Rooney expects 75,000 people will attend the three-day event this year at the Boston Convention And Exhibition Center in South Boston.

"Over time the hope and expectation is that this event will grow to 100,000 people each year," says Rooney.

The event started at the Hynes Convention Center just two years ago and it's grown bigger every year.

The event will be held April 6th-8th.
