The #homeless are wrecking San Diego’s convention business

San Diego’s growing homeless problem has not gone unnoticed by meeting planners, posing a hurdle for the sales team in persuading associations and companies to book a meeting here.

Recently a meeting planner who was visiting San Diego to consider booking a meeting was attacked by a homeless individual in a hotel bar.

Homelessness is becoming a more obvious challenge because it’s very visible and if you get accosted by a homeless person or have to step over stuff on the street, planners will say I’m not sure I want to have to deal with this.

Throw in the city’s hepatitis A pandemic and it’s easy to see why people are spending their convention dollars elsewhere.
