SGIA '05 Cancelled


And so they begin. The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association cancelled its 2005

(9/28 - 10/1) meeting in New Orleans

. There were 11,000-plus attendees expected. They tried to

move it to Atlanta but decided against it. The CEO/president says in the press release:

    "SGIA '05 in New Orleans was well on its way to being the best SGIA Convention in recent memory. The quality and quantity of exhibitors and attendees was staggering. In moving to Atlanta, as we discussed, we faced the challenge of delivering the same level of value to attendees and exhibitors without the luxury of the time needed to accomplish the goal."

Sad, sad, sad. But hardly unexpected.
