    Re: Detail Fest 2017 - dates and location

    I have been going to this event,every year,since 2008 and it was really enjoying.It's a shame i won't be going anymore since the location has moved to West Palm Beach.The last time i was down there in that area(specifically,Okeechobee Boulevard) at a lot of traffic light crossings on the median was pan handlers and hookers.My friend and i pulled into a restaurant and out in the parking lot a man came up to us and was insisted on us giving him money.When he saw that both of us were packing,he left.We also noticed that another man was going from car to car checking doors to see if they were unlocked.When he saw us observing him he left.I can understand Autogeek has grown and i guess more room is needed but Palm Beach isn't like it used to be and even the upscale hotels and area looks nice,it still is what it is.I'm sure no one cares if i attend the event or not but i just felt like stating my feelings.

    I doubt there will be hookers and bums at the convention center.Its 35 minutes to pbc don't let the hookers get you bummed out.

    Hookers and pan handlers? Sounds like downtown San Francisco! Or Chicago...Can't remember.

    Still debating about going to this. Hard to get away, but would love to go to this event.

    Palmbeach is simply beautiful and safe.The west side of okechobee rd is car dealer alley and some sections have that atomospher of feeling unsafe.The east side is loaded with skyscrapers and beautiful totally safe area.some of the best restaurants and exotic car heaven as daily drivers.If you are a car nut there is nothing in the world that is bigger than this.

    You are correct, I am in this area a lot, very nice, upscale high end area. In the past month alone I have been by convention center three times and happy to report I have not seen one bit of what was being discuss. For goodness sake the convention center is across the street from Ruth Chris Steak House and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. So I believe our other forum member posting must be confusing this area with somewhere else. I tend to be in this area a lot, we love to go to the Kravis not to mention the shopping in the area!!
