The results of this study show that family members influenced the decisions linked to convention travel to Las Vegas. As a secondary result of this study, family decision making in convention participation appeared to be slightly husband-dominant even though spouses perceived spousal equality in decision making roles. Among the studied variables, the two major motives for family convention travel were convention participation itself and spouses' desire to accompany the participant on the trip. The respondents reported they best perceived their spouses' preferences and desire to accompany them on the trip. Gender and household income appeared to be the strongest factors impacting the relative contribution of family members in convention travel decision maKing Families were generally satisfied with their convention travel to Las Vegas. The strongest contribution to this satisfaction was made by the convention attended itself rather than the other factors with Las Vegas' tourist attractions. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
