Comdex cancelled

According to an article on zdnet.com Comdex, once THE tech show, has been cancelled.

"Eric Faurot, vice president of Comdex organizer MediaLive International, revealed the plans in an exclusive interview with CNET News.com, saying the company plans to give Comdex a breather after years of falling attendance, in the number of both attendees and vendors.

"'We feel that while we could run Comdex profitably this year, it really wouldn't serve the interests of the broader IT industry,' he said. The international versions of the show are expected to continue as planned." The article also says they plan to get it back up and running for 2005. I'm not sure what this means in terms of their long-standing contract with the Las Vegas Convention Center, but my guess is that there's some scrambling going on.
