I was just going to post something to the same effect.

No question, conferences are going to try to keep up revenue streams. That said, they may not be able to keep up all those revenue streams.

Just like the housing market in 2008, and other markets, there will come a time when they do not keep rising.

I remember when at the Real Estate Development arm of Reynolds Metals Company, I used to see projections for commercial rental properties. All the "brilliant" MBA's keep projecting rental income going up, and the rental expenses to stay low and flat. That couldn't happen, and didn't happen. A lot of commercial real estate developers went out of business during the bust in the early 90's.

Same thing is going to happen with athletic income. At some point, the continued sharp rise in income is going either flatten out, or start to decrease. If programs aren't flexible enough to adjust with the income change, they will be in the world of hurt.
