CITY IS MISSING OUT: In a special to the S.F. BUSINESS TIMES, S.F. Travel Association President & CEO Joe D'Alessandro writes, "One of the largest gaps San Francisco has in meeting the needs of convention and meeting planners is the lack of a large, indoor facility than can accommodate 18,000 attendees or more." A facility of this size "gives us an opportunity to host marquee events." This is an "opportunity that [is] too good to let slip by." It is time to "build an arena in San Francisco and bring the Golden State Warriors basketball team back home" (S.F. BUSINESS TIMES, 11/9 issue).
