Denver, Las Vegas, Anaheim and Orlando have led surveys of association members asked about potential future homes for the summer show. (The association also holds a winter equipment show in January in Salt Lake City. It's possible that could move, too.)
Moving wouldn't be such a bad thing, said Andrea Mrotek, trade show manager for Tigard-based Gerber Legendary Blades.
"It seems like (the city is) always under construction right around the convention center," Mrotek said, putting some finishing touches on a display of Gerber knives. She's also not a fan of state laws that limit some establishments from selling beer that has alcohol content higher than 3.2 percent.
