Exhibition association leaders IAEM, CEIR, and SISO outlined their position on the importance of pulling together after the September 11 tragedy in a joint letter.
"First and foremost, we must present the fact that most events will go on as scheduled," the letter says. "This must be the message that we deliver to the media, our exhibitors and our visitors. Our message must be loud and clear and it must be delivered now. Dwelling on events that have been canceled distorts reality."
