Supercomm vs. BBWF

Craig Matsumoto

4:35 PM -- Someone just pointed this out to me: Supercomm 2010 will conflict with Broadband World Forum Europe 2010.

Supercomm is set to go back to Chicago, Oct. 26 to Oct. 29, 2010. And you can see on the International Engineering Consortium (IEC) site that Broadband World Forum Europe is scheduled for Oct. 26 to Oct. 28, 2010.

That's particularly bad news for Supercomm if it decides to stick with the Broadband Life theme, and I wouldn't even consider that a given. (See How to Save Supercomm.) Even so, BBWF seems to have more buzz than Supercomm. If I ran a European company, it would take a lot more than Cubs tickets and a House of Blues party to get me to Chicago that week.

We'll see. A lot can happen in a year. Either show could change the date, right?

Ha!  You know, the reason I worded it that way was because I've used the Cubs-in-October joke two or three times now (as in, "No one has to worry about there being Cubs games because it'll be the start of the world series").

But I guess that one never gets old.

You must be kidding when you mention Chicago Cubs tickets and the end of October... that, or you are a Cubs fan!  :)
