Subjects for further research: Tourism and convention boycotts are being called for over the Indiana  "religious freedom" law, and some state and local governments have already banned non-essential travel to one or both. FiveThirtyEight has a survey of past efforts in this line, including the NFL's boycott of Arizona over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.

I suspect that one reason these boycotts aren't more successful is that conventions and meetings are typically planed several years in advance, and the contracts that the visitors enter into probably do not allow for cancellation due to hateful and stupid state legislatures. A stand on principle is a fine thing, but a big financial hit for relocating your annual meeting to someplace other than Hot Springs is another thing altogether. It would be interesting to survey this.
