A lot of it comes down to manpower and space.

In terms of manpower, convention staffs already tend to be spread out pretty thinly, especially during dance events which require a high level of attention for safety.

As far as space goes, most conventions aim to maximize the space they are renting for the weekend to have as much programming as possible. Dedicating a space to a bag check cuts down on places that could be used for things like panels, screening rooms, etc.
Paying the convention venue to run a bag check is not always a viable option. Again there is the issue of space to do it, but also conventions often operate on a tight budget and the cost of paying for a bag check for the night is a cost that is too high. This can be offset by attendees paying for checked bags, but oftentimes attendees are not willing to pay which puts the cost back on the convention.
