I can't disagree with a lot of what was said about Las Vegas. It is a much nicer city if you get away from the Strip. However, while there are other cities that can host large numbers of convention attendees, most of those cities don't have the facilities to take 10,000 people and split them into hundreds of smaller classes of 25-300 people.

Orlando hosts a lot of people yet when Autodesk attempted AU there, it was a disaster (IMO). In Las Vegas, the event is within walking distance to everyone's hotel making networking and meeting new people easy anytime. If you host AU at the Moscone Center, once the event concludes people will scatter. In Las Vegas, you have a chance to make a quick trip to your hotel during the day without really leaving the event.

But, if you really want to move it, I'd suggest New Orleans...the food is fantastic!
